In 1985, Michael J. Fox starred in one of the most successful and beloved sci-fi comedies ever made (our Open Space People's Choice Winner), and he's also in this one, playing a teenage werewolf. That’s right, while most kids his age are sprouting body hair and dealing with cracking voices, he’s got it even worse; he’s a werewolf (not nearly as glamorous as adventuring with Doc Brown in a DeLorean, is it?) And as a total nobody in his small Nebraskan town, it’s the worst thing that could happen to him… No, wait, it's actually the BEST thing that could happen, because now his lupine features and behaviors have not only made him the most popular guy in school, but also star of the basketball team (wolves are naturally good at basketball, duh). Join us and perennial TCFF favorite Doug Benson as he and some of his comedy pals give a live sendup of this decidedly 1980s take on the high school experience. And be sure you stay through to the end for the BIG reveal! Don’t worry, Doug will explain.
