Few things in life are as delectable as a peanut butter sandwich. Except maybe a spam sandwich.

But nothing beats a peanut butter and spam sandwich.

In a groundbreaking first-ever collaboration, May Contain Nuts and the Spam Artists are coming together to bring youโ€ฆ The Sandwich. Not just any old sandwich, The Sandwich is a improvisational comedy show so packed with nutty, spammy goodness that you’ll want nothing more than to head to the nearest supermarket and grab yourself some PB and spam to make your own.

Expect to see a glorious mixup of scenes both short (think ‘Whose Line is it Anyway?’) and long (think ‘Titanic’/’Avengers: Endgame’/’Toy Story 4’, but made up on the spot). Expect quirky characters, questionable physics, and lots of foreign accents. Most important, expect to see your ideas and suggestions taken up, slapped between two slices of metaphorical bread, and transformed into a sweet, nutty, salty, theatrical mรฉlange that will leave you craving more.

Tickets are $15 online and $20 at the door – get yours today to avoid disappointment.

(And yes, we ate the sandwich in the photo afterwards. All of it. And made more, and ate them, until all the spam was gone. Because that’s the kind of people we are.)
