The Misplaced Comedy Group found its beginnings in 1999, when actor and radio personality Steven Grabo And Jeffrey Prekop won several awards in a National Competition in the performing arts. Realizing that they Only lived a mile from each other, they started writing comical radio skits and commercials for broadcast. After hosting several comedy clubs, Steve was introduced to Jennifer Feliciano, Jeff brought in his brother Dave, and the four of them started to perform Theater Games! John Gradick, Steve's previous boss at the radio conglomerate and now next-door neighbor, also got in on the action. It was during this time that they started recording material that would change their reputable images forever!
During the 9/11 attacks of the World Trade Center, in a dazed confused shock, Jeff knocked on Steve's door at 9:30 in theevening with the concept to record a song parody that would be heard across the country and become the #1 Internet Comedy Song on MP3.COM for five straight months! "The Bin Laden Banana Boat Song" became the top hit on their CD "The Afghan Files," and pretty soon skits like "Muslim Barbie" and "The Afghanistan Dating Game" became some of the most requested downloads on the Internet.
The four then started focusing on promoting a 'live' show that could present their studio material in with a new trend that was just starting to hit the comedy market, Interactive Theater Games. While setting up performance dates, the four of them started getting cast in separate performances. Steve started getting lead roles in independent film projects, Jen was performing Stand-up and raising a family, while Dave and Jeff were performing Shakespeareand also in the middle of starting their own families.
In 2002, Steve moved the MCG office to sunny Sarasota, Florida, and The Misplaced Comedy Group was Re-Born with a whole new roster! Although, Steve remains the only original member, a whole new and larger cast of Misplaced Players has joined in to carry on the tradition of creating some of the sickest humor available!
Many changes have come into play since the new roster has taken hold. A New Logo had been developed, and an entirely new interactive website was created (as previous fans can tell), which includes a Forum where Misplaced Fans and Members can interact and post MCG's Latest Happenings. Also! A brand new line of "Misplaced Gear" is now available for our fans all around can enjoy!
Of course, with this... comes all new Material! Currently, The Misplaced Comedy Group have been writing and producing a whole new batch of skits and parodies, while booking and performing their new show! The show includes brand new sketches, parodies, theater handles and other material that canonly be seen during their performances. They are also in preproduction of filming these new sketches for their upcoming DVD. With all of this going on, Misplaced Fans are 'now' able to keep posted on MCG's latest events!
MCG is currently starting to Film their projects for a soon to be released DVD, which will be made available on their website.
As long as The Misplaced Comedy Group's around, fans everywhere will be blessed with some of the most sick and twisted comedy around.
