Ironic T-Shirt was founded in 2003 as Bowdoin College’s first sketch comedy group. Upon graduation the group disbanded, only to be revived two years later in Los Angeles by members Anton Handel and Nikolai von Keller. Former group member Daniel Yingst attempted to form his own splinter group Sarcastic Tanktop while attending graduate school at the University of Chicago. While they enjoyed a brief stint of popularity, attendance began to wane as an increasing number of skits ended with Yingst crying over a diorama of raw meat marionettes. Ironic T-Shirt, on the other hand, is alive and well.
