Everything Is Terrible! has altered the consciousness of a generation, one re-edited VHS video at a time! For nearly a decade, EIT! has introduced the world to their true selves through psychedelic comedy video gems such as the dancing child-god Duane, the pedophile-stomping yellow dino, French pubic hair styling, cat massage, and so much more! And now… with the inimitable EIT! live experience, YOU, the viewer get to unplug your internet brain and plug in your spirit molecule! EIT! will hold your sweaty, trembling, little hand as they guide you through the 7 sacred realms of Terrible found video! As always, the Everything Is Terrible! figureheads will appear in their glittered and fur-covered, melted flesh to massage your dead soul as you laugh like you’ve never laughed before! And don’t forget to bring your Jerry Maguire VHS tapes… You’re gonna need em!
