Every month, The Sequel Machine recruits 25 writers to write the sequels for film’s biggest franchises one page at a time. The catch is, the writers only get to read the page before theirs in a round-robin, exquisite corpse style. The end result is a hilarious, twisted, and as coherent as any misquided Hollywood sequel. This month: 9thmare on Elm Street.
Performed by: Adam Bozarth, Dan Chamberlain, Matt Little, Anna Rubanova, Brett White, Jeremy Bent, Kathy Salerno, Nicole Byer, and Laura Willcox

It’s a Halloween miracle!
This one is definitely my favorite of our Sequel Machine shows so far. Turns out if you ask 25 comedy writers to work on a script about a murderer that kills you in your sleep, a lot of weird things come out. The way it moves and changes is like some sort of VHS dream ballet.
I saw this live and while it works as a podcast, don’t miss the Left Handed Radio shows if you’re in New York. I don’t know Dan Chamberlain or Anna Rubanova personally but if you like your comedy with genuine theatrical talent, check them out.
