Yeah No Sketch Show creator Greg Hernandez says the inspiration for their current show, Sh!t Listed: The Very Worst of Craigslist, came from an ad on the site that was so preposterous it was just asking to be turned into comedy. The troupe used the post as a jumping-off point for a musical number in their debut show, Summer Lovin', Some R Hatin', and it was such a hit they decided to devote a whole night of sketches based on terrible Craigslist ads. Some of the postings they are using feature a search for an amateur exorcist in the volunteer section, a lost-man notice in the lost and found section, and, of course, a penis measuring ad. Other sketches include "Acting Camp," "Planned Parenthood," and "The Tallest Boy at Clubhouse Jäger." Hernandez claims that even though the ads themselves are the worst of the worst, Yeah No Sketch takes them even further, punching them up to their most ridiculous extreme. Their last show sold out, so you might want to get your tickets in advance.
