The most recent brownbread mixtape was possibly one of our very best and it had some of the most hilarious sketches we’ve done yet. All five sketches are presented below for your delectation.
Please consider subscribing to our YouTube channel and please do retweet, repost and resend the clips to others if you dig them. It would mean a lot to us. Thanks!
In addition to the regular slot at the brownbread mixtape, The Brownbread Players will be performing shows in February, March and April. Check back on the blog regularly or join their group on Facebook for updates and info.
