When a mysterious force brings down all forms of communication, electricity, and the basic law and order of Los Angeles, things aren’t looking great for partners in life and comedy Gabriel Diani and Etta Devine. Ill-prepared to cope with Hollywood (and general adulthood), they’re definitely not ready for the apocalypse. Setting out for a friend’s sustainable hippie commune with their cat and dog in tow (and a vivid plan on which animal they should eat first if it comes to that—no spoilers here!), the couple meets looters, religious zealots, and even potential cannibals. Will they (and their relationship) survive? How about their pets? Though a struggling stand-up duo in their onscreen personas, real-life couple Diani and Devine are wildly successful in their outright hilarious turn as the writers, directors, and stars of this wacky comedy. Cameos by Barry Bostwick (The Rocky Horror Picture Show), Janet Varney, and other familiar faces keep the laughs coming.

Guest in attendance 10/15 & 10/16: Gabriel Diani (director, writer, actor)
