If you are looking for a spooky, scary, Halloween-themed night of sketch comedy, look no further than House of Solitude’s, “Everything’s Fine in Sicklerburg”. The show promises a through-line of sketches that take place within Sicklerburg; a normal town where everything is always fine. Fans of House of Solitude might find the phrase, “everything is fine” familiar from the endings of their serialized sketch series, “Your Body Has Changed”, the most recent edition titled, “Sleep”. See how the residents of Sicklerburg deal with everything being “fine” despite residents recent disappearances, their dead awakening and people “changing”. Yes. Yes.

House of Solitude is written & performed by Daniel Corkery (Alley of Nightmares, Goat Rodeo) and Caitlin Weigel (ManiPedi, Sketchier).

Jake MatteraOpening Thursday night’s show will be Jake Mattera! Originally from Philadelphia, Jake is a stand-up and comedy writer. He is a member of the sketch comedy group, “HoagieFist” and also performs regularly with PHIT Improv House Team, 1816.

Chucky McMelonmeyerOpening Friday’s show, Chucky McMelonmeyer – Regional Child Star. Look at this person. Don’t look away. This is the face of the former star of children’s pre-after-school TV show, KABLOOWEY!. Mr. McMelonmeyer is pretty happy for the booking even if he thinks he’s opening up for a show about postcards… He knows what he knows though and that’s something, right?
