Thomas & William's Double Solos

Wed, Apr 17 @ 9:30

After a successful preview of their respective shows, Thomas Frances (Ground Floor Comedy, Wet Tux) and William Banks (LISA, A Crazy Amazing Friendship) will premiere their Thomas & William’s Double Solos at Brooklyn Comedy Collective on Wednesday, April 17th at 9:30 PM. Their two solo sets derive from the most absurd areas of their life, often taking surreal steps into alternate universes where their best friends play the roles of William and Thomas. 

The night includes: 

THE LIFE AND FAILURES OF THOMAS FRANCES

Thomas Frances is a failure. Just ask his three children. Or his divorce lawyer. Or his clone. Or a ghost. Better yet, discover how much of a failure he is right in front of you. Featuring special guests Adam Bangser, Kelly Cooper, Jolie Darrow, Tim Lamphier, and Ian Lockwood.

LOCKED INSIDE A WALK-IN FREEZER WITH WILLIAM BANKS

On October 14th, 2018, William Banks was locked inside of a walk-in freezer for 45 minutes. This made him very sad for weeks. Join William on a journey through the freezer and discover how having fun is the only way to stay warm! You will not freeze to death, but you will laugh to death :-)
