FAMILY CAMP, the first feature-length film from The Skit Guys, a renowned comedy act comprised of Tommy Woodard and Eddie James, also stars Leigh-Allyn Baker ("Good Luck Charlie", "Will & Grace", "Charmed") and Gigi Orsillo (SLEEPER AGENT).

Watch the trailer for FAMILY CAMP here.
When their pastor (Mark Christopher Lawrence) encourages the congregation to sign up for a week away at family camp, Grace (Leigh-Allyn Baker) believes she's found the perfect cure for her imperfect clan—even if they'd all rather be anywhere but at rustic Camp Katokwah. FAMILY CAMP is a laugh-out-loud comedy that is sure to touch the hearts and tickle the funny bones of every family member from eight to eighty.
"For over 20 years, we've dreamed about making a comedy feature film," said Eddie James of The Skit Guys. "Our goal is to always include humor, heart, and Him (God), and we were able to accomplish that in FAMILY CAMP."
"We believe humor helps break down barriers," said Tommy Woodard of The Skit Guys. "With our first movie, we hope families will not only laugh together, they will also draw closer to each other … and to God."
FAMILY CAMP, written by director Brian Cates and Rene Gutteridge, is a faith-based film that the entire family will enjoy. Producing FAMILY CAMP are industry veterans Darren Moorman (BLUE MIRACLE, SAME KIND OF DIFFERENT AS ME), Trey Reynolds (BLUE MIRACLE), and Justin Tolley (WAR ROOM), along with Jay Howver, The Skit Guys' Chief Operations Officer.
"I feel like there's a real hole in the movie world when it comes to family comedies. I mean, this is what used to drive the box office," said Leigh-Allyn Baker. "People, now more than ever, need to laugh. I'm really glad that people can laugh at this and laugh with us."

About The Skit Guys:
The Skit Guys are Tommy Woodard and Eddie James, who have been best friends since high school. They fell in love with acting through their involvement in the school's theater productions, and discovered they had a knack for making people laugh. When Tommy invited Eddie to church, everything changed. With encouragement and guidance from their youth pastor, the guys started to write and perform skits for their youth group. No longer was it just about making people laugh—their skits now had a bigger purpose. Since their high-school days, they've been writing and performing hilarious and poignant skits live and on camera. Tommy and Eddie have traveled the world performing at events, churches, and conferences. Their SkitGuys.com website has grown into a treasured media resource for pastors and their churches. Their numerous short films, skits, and scripts are used in churches all over the world. When The Skit Guys aren't performing or shooting new short films, both Tommy and Eddie serve in their local churches, enjoy good food (especially pizza and fries!), and love life with their families.
