In this 90-minute mockumentary, Orange County Crazies founder, Cherie Kerr, finds herself in the middle of the most stressful production of her 40-year comedy career…

Coming Soon: 3rd Annual Matricher Falls Internationel Film Festival (the sequel to) The Show Can’t Go On!


The Show Can’t Go On!

In what appears to be her last show, a burned-out sketch comedy writer/director shares a behind-the-scenes look at the “mounting and sustaining” of “Orange is the New Orange”; a sketch comedy show that skates on the edge of disaster. It’s a look at what could go wrong—what did go wrong.

The 90-minute feature starts with the first table read and takes the audience to the final curtain–the last night of the show’s run. And, through every calamity along the way.

Now Available to Stream On:

Amazon Prime, Tubi, Xumo, and the new streaming platform Mometu! (launching on Amazon Fire TV, Roku, Apple TV, Google Play, Web, Android, and iOS Devices)

Delivering Humor With A Moral Message

“Like the great docu-comedies “Waiting for Guffman” and “Nashville,” The Show Can’t Go On! finds that delicious balance between painful truth and laugh out loud funny.”

Michael Gellman. Senior Director. The Second City.

“This specific show must CERTAINLY go on, and I hope it will reach the platforms and audiences it deserves. It’s brilliant, dark, deep, and highly entertaining—movie making at its best.”

Anabelle Munro, CEO / Festival Director, TMIF

I’ve done dozens of sketch shows in the past 30 years, but never have I encountered such madness. It came down to laugh or cry. I preferred to laugh and so did many others in the cast.
