The Jolly Beans / Marina & Nicco
Does lonely New York-living ever make you want to open your tiny window and scream "F$%@!!!" at the brick wall? Meet Susan and George, lovelorn neighbors with tired voices and weary souls who plunge crotch-first into the dark world of dating. Guided by Jolly Bean, the magical-musical hobo who lives outside their building, Susan and George brave psychos, stalkers and sex addicts, only to find that love might be right next door. Shawn Shafner and Amanda Miller perform all thirty roles in this fast-paced show.
Marina and Nicco (formerly of the The Disappointments) create comedy a thousand times their size, like the super-human ant-people wonder-twins they were born to be. Their shows are charming and disturbing all at once. You'll see Sigmund Freud suggesting Mother's Day gift ideas, you'll see Louis Armstrong throwing up -- and if you sit really quietly, you just might notice the clown hiding in the audience. Just as a little bit of salt makes cake sweet, a little bit of fear makes your laughter more intense. Trust us, you'll enjoy these sketches.
