Synopses & Reviews
The funniest catalog in America. Guaranteed.
Let award-winning comedy troupe Kasper Hauser transport you into the sublime universe that is SkyMaul, where Banana-ganizers and Reality-Canceling Headphones coexist with Crack Pipe Chess Sets and Llamacycles. More than just a catalog parody, SkyMaul 2 explodes with razor-sharp wit, boundless creativity, and a keen eye for the absurd. This smart, edgy satire will earn your laughter again and again.
The first edition of SkyMaul was published seven years ago, and this new "issue" of the magazine includes all-new products.
