A character show? YES. But is that enough? NEVER.

Perhaps a country club from your home town? Or maybe behind the tennis court wall there....  Oh oh oh how about a haunted ranch in New Mexico!!! Seriously! The possibilities are endless and it’s up to you. So please help us out…. and give us the world! We really need it.

They made friends with big stars who respect them a lot. Come watch them in what some NY Times has called “a comedy master class?” and what a Boston Globe has said “please keep them in New York.”

Also featuring comedy acts that Ian and Andrew have approved using their heightened comedy sensibilities. DISCLAIMER: all acts are best friends with Andrew and Ian.
