SOLOCOM is NYC's Only All-New Solo Comedy Festival!

November 17 - November 20, 2016 at The Peoples Improv Theater

The Peoples Improv Theater proudly announces the return of SOLOCOM following last year’s record-breaking weekend, which debuted over 126 world premieres.

The PIT, along with award-winning solo show artist Peter Michael Marino (Desperately Seeking the Exit), once again presents all new solocomedies from national and international solo performers.

Now entering its fourth year, SOLOCOM is a unique solo show festival that has launched over 275 new solo comedies that have gone on to longer runs, tours and festivals around the world. This 4-day festival in NYC takes place in 3.5 spaces at The Peoples Improv Theater in the Flatiron District and at The PIT Loft in Chelsea from November 17 - 20.

Marino and The PIT created SOLOCOM to provide artists with a platform in which to generate new comic material. Dozens of shows that made their debut at SOLOCOM 2013, 2014 & 2015 have gone on to tour the world and play at various festivals including Edinburgh Fringe, Hollywood Fringe, NC Comedy Arts Festival, and Orlando Fringe. Gary Busey’s One-Man Hamlet by David Carl began at SOLOCOM before becoming the breakout hit of the New York International Fringe, transferring to Edinburgh and returning to NYC for a triumphant run.
