On Saturday night, I went to see The Office’s Kate Flannery and Oscar Nuñez perform in SF Sketchfest — a two week festival of sketch, improv, stand-up, television, film, and musical comedy.
The Lampshades: First up was Kate and her comedy act, The Lampshades. The Lampshades is a musical lounge act comprising Kassie Chew (Kate) and her partner Hori Pismo (Scot Robinson).
Cassie sings, dances, and performs provocative deep knee bends. Hori, on the other hand, struggles to just stay awake and not pass out with a drink in his hand. At one point, Kassie sings Donna Summer’s “Last Dance” while Porie reads the latest Hollywood obituaries. They also butcher perform classic tunes “Mandy/Brandy” and “When Doves Cry.” It’s a lively and funny show!
Kate was awesome. With her bouffant wig, red jumpsuit, and retro dance moves, she looks like a tripped-out version of Kate Pierson from the B-52s. And boy, can she belt out a song!

Anyway, here are my 20. Pick your favorite, and the top three vote-getters will each receive a prize package full of Office goodies!
