Team StarKid is back with something big, and you won’t find it on YouTube. Their new sketch comedy show, Airport for Birds (and Other Great Ideas), is coming to The Second City’s UP Comedy Club from January 27-March 3, 2013.

Known for creating heartfelt parody musicals for YouTube, Team StarKid now jumps from the small screen to no screen at all!  Airport for Birds is an evening of “great” ideas and other bits that have hit the cutting room floor.   Come see some familiar StarKid faces fly through 90 minutes of sketch comedy, video shorts, and music!
