Help NYCIF welcome former PIT House Team, Borealis!
"The players of Borealis balance explosive physicality with aggressive character play for a satisfying set." -- TimeOut New York
Borealis is Jonathan Desley, Jamie Cummings, Keith Huang,Leslie Collins, Lorraine Cink, Oscar Montoya and Marshall York.
Now that the east coast west coast beef has subsided, North Coast is stepping up to throw down! Watch as New York's premier freestyle rapping, beatboxing, long-form improv comedy team performs a fully improvised "hip-hopera" right in front of your very eyes. Since their inception five years ago, they have performed all over NYC including The PIT, UCB and Magnet Theaters. North Coast tours to Improv Festivals and Universities across the country as well, performing and teaching workshops. They've been seen at North Carolina Comedy Arts Festival, Hell Yes Fest (New Orleans), Women in Comedy Festival, Boston Comedy Arts Festival, Del Close Marathon, IOWest, the New York Musical Improv Festival, NYU, Fordham University, and the New York Institute of Technology - among others.
In your face and upbeat from start to finish, North Coast's show is like nothing you've ever seen before. But you will want to see it again and again. And if you don't know, now you know.
North Coast is Boris Khaykin, Douglas Widick, Evan Kaufman, James Robilotta, Jonathan DeMuth, Julia Morales, Oscar Montoya, Rachel Rosenthal...and a special guest beatboxer!
