Since their first show over three years ago, Flat Earth has gained a reputation as being one of Philadelphia’s goofiest, most whimsical sketch teams. They have also developed a reputation for having a pretty high kill count for their characters. To ring in their brand new show Sorry For Your Loss, we’re counting down our top five favorite Flat Earth deaths.
5. SPY STUFF
Our hero, an international spy, is captured by a nefarious super villain. The only thing standing in the way of the villain’s plan for world domination is a secret code that only our hero knows. The villain decides to use some “advance interrogation” tactics and calls in his henchman, a temp from the henchmen temp agency, who accidentally shoots our hero in the head.
4. DEER HUNTER
3. 80’s BULLY
Not all the deaths on this list are funny, some are tragic. Such is the case with 80’s Bully, as our hero, a bully from the 80’s, sacrifices himself during an act of sheer heroism and dies in a horrible BMX biking accident.
2. THE MAESTRO
The Flat Earth’s high concept show “The Flat Earth’s 9th” was off to a good start when we had our favorite new-age music composer perform at the top of our show. After a few moments without any chord changes, we realized that this wasn’t just some dreamy soundscape, but the composer had died of a heart attack on stage.
