Contraganda was a comedy variety show co-created with Eric Cash. It only saw the stage a few times. Most importantly, two shows in the Shelton Theater in San Francisco and one performance at UCLA.
Scot has a natural interest in marketing and sociology, but researching for this show really sent him into the books and he "lied his way into" a job at a marketing company to get the inside scoop.
Due to a misunderstanding, a theater owner told Scot "You can do your cooking show in my theater." Scot said, "Cooking show... yes. Thank you. I'll be ready to start in two weeks."
Two weeks later, CuliNery Tuesdays began. It was a fun comedy cooking show live on stage with unusual themes like "Gingerbread Crackhouse" and "Snacks for your roadtrip to the moon". People got real food samples if they were trusting enough and it was really fun.
Scot got a gig in Japan, so he left, made a bunch of money and came back to San Francisco's Climate Theater to continue with Crash Course. Crash Course was three nights per week and much more professional (full set, lighting setup, minor-celebrity guest chefs, etc.) Crash Course and CuliNery Tuesdays ran for 6 months each.
After street performing for nearly a year around the country, Scot Nery and Chris Karney set to work making a comedy variety show of epic proportions. Eventually featured on the Discovery Channel, it became a very popular, insane event weekly at the Odeon Bar in San Francisco. Scot and Chris promoted the show by flyering on the streets, going to clubs and making scenes which lead to them being kicked out most of the time, and using word of mouth.
Visceral Variety grew by giving some of the world's best variety wizards opportunities to try out new stuff and reminisce their humble beginnings. The show was renowned for it's difficult, seen-it-all audiences and anything-goes atmosphere.
