About the show
Dating in New York sucks! Comedian and matchmaker Emma Vernon wants you to take the night off and kick back as you watch 2 brave souls go on a real blind date on stage—set up by her!
The catch? The date takes place on stage in a ‘first date’ location created entirely by improvisers. Is all it takes to find real love the right fake setting?
Emma Vernon is a comedian and ‘millennial matchmaker’ putting a modern twist on traditional matchmaking. She’s always been intuitive, and realized early on that matchmaking was a gift she had. As a fellow single person navigating dating in NYC, she exudes the confidence of an expert, with the relatability, vulnerability, and stories of a friend. She performs stand up and improv all over the city and has appeared on Refinery29 as well as the app AirTime and has been a featured performer in the New York Comedy Festival.
