ELKS spawns a new era of mutant comedy.
ELKS is a comedy-marriage between Lauren Knutti and Elizabeth Schantz.
Based in Los Angeles, ES & LK have trained and performed at UCB, Second City, iO Chicago, and The Pack Theater. After writing and performing monthly sketch shows with their Austin team, Pendulum, they were featured in numerous festivals including Out Of Bounds Festival, Austin Sketch Festival, BettyFest, and more.
They wrote, starred in, and produced the series, Segs, which you can view today on Amazon Prime!
Knutti and Schantz regularly perform improv and sketch at UCB and Second City, as well as host a monthly show with their team Snake Pit, where groups are encouraged to bring their weirdest forms.
And finally, ELKS would be remiss not to give *mad props* to Geeta Bajaj, ELKS' number one producer and overall wizard.
We also exist separately!
We made a cool web series.
It's a SICK A$$ SHOW CALLED
Eccentric Segtown employees get into inane antics, while their oblivious manager tries positioning them as 'Austin's Premier Segway Tour Guides.'
(for a good time)
