Uncle Function is a NYC-based sketch comedy group featuring Chris Cafero, Russell Daniels, Jessica Frey, Douglas Goodhart, and Gianmarco Soresi.
This is a sketch team of serious actors. This sketch team can act. This sketch team can act the shit out of a sketch. One of the members of the sketch team has booked a national commercial. One of the members of the sketch team only does Shakespeare and sketch. So, you know, high brow. One of the members of Uncle Function will never actually be an uncle. And it isn't because of infertility.
Just like your real Uncles, we'll make you laugh, cry, think, feel moderately uncomfortable, and then send you back to your parents forever changed.
