As-Yet-Untitled Monster Comedy Improv Show Veteran comedy podcasters Adal Rifai (Hello from The Magic Tavern) and Katelyn Hempstead will come together later this year for an as-yet-untitled monster comedy improv show. The show takes place in the Pacific Northwest where every monster, every cryptid, every urban legend, everything that goes bump in the night, all live together in peace and harmony. Well, more or less. In the shadowy riverfront of Spokane, Washington, you’ll find a thriving mini-metropolis of supernatural creatures and the two best friends who’ve sworn to help them solve their problems - no matter how petty. Whether it’s a Sasquatch trying to find a date, a Mummy who lost her evil amulet while rollerblading, or helping the Mongolian Death Worm pursue its dreams, half-vampire Daniel Pier and full-werewolf Claire Dermond will stop at nothing to help their community. Along the way we’ll meet Claire and Daniel’s friends and nemeses in the cryptid community, the government agents who try to keep their work under wraps, and a wide cast of characters. The new show launches in Fall of 2022 and is a co-production between QCODE and its unscripted vertical, Wood Elf Media. Wood Elf launched in 2021 and specializes in talent-driven content from online influencers and genre-focused personalities and is home to Distractible, Go! My Favorite Sports Team and Bigfoot Collectors Club.
