  • ASF Hot Seat: OSFUG


    Sick of long sketches, complicated staging and ballooning prop budgets, NYC’s Kingmaker set out to create bare bones, balls-to-the-wall sketch show where scenes have close to zero props and come under two pages. The result? O.S.F.U.G.: A Fast Fucking Sketch! We put O.S.F.U.G.’s Mark Vigeant in the ASF Hot Seat to ask him a few questions. What can audiences look forward […]
