About the show
North Coast, New York City’s premier hip-hop improv team, has long been known for their seamless melding of freestyle rapping and long form improv comedy. But in the heat of the smash Broadway hit Hamilton, people have been going f****** bonkers for historical raps. We hear you loud and clear.
Join North Coast at the PIT for this very special performance as the team takes your favorite historical figure and performs a full, factually-accurate improv set to satisfy your hunger for hip-hop history. Nikola Tesla? Bawse. Ida B. Wells? Flawless. Louisa May Alcott? Mic drop.
Named one of the “Top Ten Best Comedy Shows” by Time Out New York, North Coast has been featured on Vh1, in Slate’s Podcast The Gist, The Village Voice, and The New York Times Comedy Listings, and currently performs every Saturday night at The Peoples Improv Theater.
