Announcing its 25th season, Killing My Lobster sketches out its future

Meghan Trowbridge never planned to write sketch comedy. When she came across Killing My Lobster in 2008, she fancied herself the sort of writer-performer whose gifts were reserved exclusively for “serious drama.” Cut to 2022 and Trowbridge is not only a company member of the quarter-century-old San Francisco sketch comedy troupe, but also proudly defends sketch as an art form. “Well, I think it’s hard to grasp how seriously we take our work, when our work includes titles like ‘City Farts and Lectures,’” she says. “People may think it’s just friends throwing together a show and not giv[ing] it much consideration, but our process is really thoughtful.” Valentine’s Day officially marked KML’s 25th anniversary, which the troupe used to announce its 2022 season. When that season begins on April 7, it will be the company’s first in-person show since February 2020.
