Who is Baby Jessica?
Jessica McClure is a native of Midland, Texas, who was trapped in a well when she was an 18-month old toddler. Her tragic – but ultimately uplifting – 58 hour ordeal attracted around-the-clock media attention and resulted in the filming of a completely unwatchable made-for-TV movie starring Patty Duke and Beau Bridges.
Why would you name a comedy troupe in honor of an infamous toddler?
Because all of the other good names like Crotch Rot and Accidental Goat Sodomy had already been taken.
