Being nervous about sketch comedy is natural. One bad experience and you're convinced the medium disagrees with you. Like that time you drank all of the melon-flavored whiskey and said, "Nope. Never again."

On Saturday, Austin sketch troupe STAG! Comedy performs at the Dallas Comedy House and they're worthy of facetime.
The group will do live bits at this Dallas gig, but their larger hometown revues use a combo-punch of 3D material and video work.
To woo you into buying a ticket for the 7:30 p.m. show, I've compiled a list of my five favorite STAG! videos. Full disclosure: I know most of these folks. More full disclosure: Wouldn't you want to? They're hilarious humans.
Tickets cost $10 to $12 for this 7:30 p.m. show. Get 'em here.
