Daring Daulton / We're Matt Weir
Daring Daulton is a sketch duo named after the former Phillies catcher and metaphysical philosopher Darren Daulton. The group has been performing in Philadelphia since March of 2012. Both members are also staff writers for one of Philly Improv Theater's house sketch teams.
The duo are both former film and screenwriting majors with unrelated office jobs. As such, Daring Daulton's largely character-driven sketches can best be identified by their dark subject matter, absurdist elements and meticulous deadpan delivery.
Daring Daulton is Trevor Cunnion and Joe Paolucci.
Same names combine as Matt B. Weir and Matt J. Weir (the Matt Weirs) along with Branson Reese (he's a member... they gave him $20 once) get very sweaty and very physical in the "name" of bringing their stupid world to life. It's a cartoon nightmare version of sketch comedy, done as a service to the cool and nice people in the audience. Mean people are encouraged to leave, ACTIVELY encouraged. Even if you think America is lame, you will like what a lifetime soaking in America produced here: comedy that is sometimes about how America is lame, but also about dumb products and situations. "If We're Matt Weir had a message, it would be that everybody suffers," said someone who came to the show once.
We're Matt Weir is Matt B. Weir, Matt J. Weir and Branson Rees.
