TMI Reading Rainbow

A short comedy sketch about Scientology creating a version of the popular children’s show “Reading Rainbow”, but in their version the show is hosted by John Travolta and the only books the kids read are by L. Ron Hubbard. This is based off a story from TMZ, in which John Travolta criticized the HBO documentary Going Clear.

The sketch was written by Joe Neuburger and directed by Shana Gregory Williams. It stars Jason Kaye as John Travolta, Madison St. Clair, Cristal Bubblin’, Matthew Marcy and Maria Wilson as the kids and Felipe Figueroa and Frank Pacheco as the Men in Black.

The sketch was originally performed in the show TMI Hollywood, at the Second City Theater in Hollywood, California.
