SURPRISE! with Rob & Sofiya is a mystery-lineup comedy show / house party that has happened every month for the last five years in a different Los Angeles yard or living room. Co-hosts Robert Buscemi and Sofiya Alexandra have staged such luminaries as Pete Holmes, Cameron Esposito, Demetri Martin, and Ali Wong. Line-ups are always diverse and inclusive, and there's always a musician or variety act. Once a skunk wandered into a corner of a yard at the Halloween show as Emo Phillips performed obliviously, dressed as a Frenchman. That was fun. Also there are usually paper arrows taped to pavement and telephone poles to guide guests to that month's locale. And the show sometimes turns into a dance party after. It's been praised by the LA Review of Books, Comedy Cake, The Comedy Bureau, and elsewhere. If you don't come at Bird City, maybe a skunk will come after you, too.
