“PRESS RELEASE
FOR IMMEDIATE USE: 10/3/2002

WTGC is back in business!

A comedy group? But “The Gunderson Corporation” sounds like a ruthless mega-conglomerate out to rule the world! In truth it is five SF fans who perform their all-original comedy live-on-stage at conventions. Initially based in Philadelphia, the not-for-profit comedy group has gypsied their way to Chicago and found a home at last.

Their name, The Gunderson Corporation, comes from the fake sponsor of their outrageous SF comedy radio plays, an insane and sleazy company that gleefully sells every bloody thing imaginable. Such as: Solar Flares: The only pen that can write on the surface of the sun! Trillo-Bytes: the tasty snack that has waited 92 million years to go into your mouth! MacHugo: the very first SF fast food restaurant chain. and Murphy’s Law Soap: whatever can be clean, will be clean. And Mafia Travel Agency, and Soothsayer Wrist Watches, and so on ad jocularium! *

Although this is just their hobby, done for the love of theater, the comedy group has performed at over 100 regional conventions, and two WorldCons!

Clean, or Blue. Take your pick. The versatile Gundersons (Gundersonians?) have a PG afternoon show, an R evening performance, and an Adults-Only-And-We-Mean-It show for their rare Midnight performances. Hold onto your hat for that one, folks.

More information about TGC, samples of their stand-up comedy sketches, radio plays, a list of SF cons where they be performing, etc., is available at their new web page: www.gundersoncorp.com, or send them email: info@gundersoncorp.com

The Gunderson Corporation: SF Comedy at the speed of light!
