VentureTek™ is, perhaps, definitely, the best. (Best=Funniest) VentureTek™ is #1. Trust us, WE’RE SCIENTISTS! VentureTek™ blends alternative sketch comedy with experimental theatre, and also, funny jokes to make you laugh. Hate the Olympics? You’ll Loooooove VentureTek™! It Rules! It’s like, long form/progressive sketch comedy. It’s so funny…What? No dude. Shut up, I’m writing our bio. Sorry. God! It’s loud in here. Anyway, VentureTek™. You might like it! You might not! See you soon!
