The Dead Dads Club

In 2010, Kristen Bartlett and Jason Gore's dads died within months of each other. Together, they formed The Dead Dads Club--an unstoppable grief-fighting force that is often tough, but occasionally falls apart when "Big Fish" is on HBO. 

This is a sketch show about what it's like to lose a parent and realize that you are going to die, too, and there's nothing you can do about it. 
(But it's funny. We swear.)
