RE: HOMEGROWN AWARD-WINNING COMEDY TEAM BRINGS ORIGINAL MUSIC AND MULTI-MEDIA SKETCH SHOW TO NOB HILL

 

COMEDY? (Pronounced “comedy question mark”) is known for being audience favorites at The Box Performance Space and Improv Theater, but after years of refining their craft (voted one of Albuquerque’s Top 3 Comedy Troupes in 2012 by the Alibi) they’re ready to surprise the Duke City with something completely different.

 

Riding high off the acclaim from their first sketch show, they’ve come back better than ever and ready to make it rain: funny money that is.  COMEDY? Presents, "A Toast", the full-length, multi-media sketch revue complete with original songs, scenes, and silliness is guaranteed to astound the mind and soul. COMEDY? is a local group of improvisers and writers that push the boundaries of the everyday norm, and with their second self-produced sketch show (in the style of SNL, Monty Python, Key and Peele, and Comedy Bang! Bang!) they're planning on breaking the mold in the local comedy scene.

 

Taking their show to the Aux Dog Theater Nob Hill, COMEDY? aims to widen their fan base and get more involved in the community outside of the downtown scene.

"The Aux Dog is excited to provide this brilliant ensemble of young performers a space to develop their original sketch comedy and a place to test out that new material, as well as grow their talents as a rising comedic force here in Albuquerque and beyond. They are quick, clever, and really bring the house down."  - V.J. Liberatori,  Artistic Director of Aux Dog

Hinting at their unique comedic attitude, founding member and local stand up comedienne Sarah Mowrey says “We have more of an alternative voice than other shows in town; think Arrested Development meets Sarah Silverman.” Troupe member Matthew Puett says, “There’s easily no other show in Albuquerque, or even the southwest, quite like ours.”

 

Best known for their weekly improv shows - performances of made-up-on-the-spot scenes based on audience suggestions. They are the only group in Albuquerque that has been performing live, original sketch comedy for the past 4 years, which has had local crowds saying they're “the funniest in town”. The group has also been called “electrifying, fearless, and at times blissfully controversial” but who cares about the adoring critics? You should come experience this for yourself.

 

COMEDY? began as a UNM chartered student organization in 2010, and has opened for the Upright Citizens Brigade Touring Improv show. Members include Sarah Mowrey, Wesley Swedenburg, Matthew Puett, Tieshia Francis, Sam Quinn, Danger Varoz, and Soraya Baraque.

 

“COMEDY? Presents… A Toast” Fridays (7pm) and Saturdays (8pm) July 11th - July 26th Aux Dog Theater Nob Hill 3011 Monte Vista Blvd NE, Albuquerque, NM 87106 (behind Buffalo Exchange). Tickets are $10 online, $12 at the door. For more info and to purchase tickets, call 505-254-7716 or visit www.auxdog.com.
