wet the hippo presents the murge


Part of the Trap House October festival of events, Think Tank Gallery invites Wet the Hippo to present a night of horror and comedy in the Sailor Jerry lounge. 

A full bar featuring Sailor Jerry cocktails, Lagunitas beer, and more will accompany an hour long show.

Get fantastically lost in the frighteningly absurd minds and wonderfully weird bodies of LA’s wildest comedy ensemble, The Murge. Experience just how far these 15 beautifully idiotic performers will go to satisfy you in this one-of-a-kind immersive performance.




"This show should simply not be missed...transcendent...absolutely hilarious...beautiful...the whole thing feels like a jazz symphony made up on the spot by Duke, Miles, Coltrane and Fitzgerald. Yes, the members of Wet The Hippo are that good." - LA Bitter Lemons.

“The most unassuming yet mesmerizing group of people you’ve seen in Los Angeles.  I left feeling more confused, inspired, fulfilled, curious and stunned then any live performance I’ve seen in a while.” - We Make Movies.

"Director John Gilkey trains performers in his aptly named Idiot Workshops, and the characters’ mix of sincerity and stupidity transcends comedy to reveal some very basic, brutal truths about human nature. This is the kind of comedy we don’t get enough of." - Stage Raw


A portion of proceeds will be donated to local non profits battling against human trafficking in Downtown Los Angeles.
