The Peoples Improv Theater is proud to announce the return of NYC Sketchfest 2023!
“Disco Horses” is a brand new sketch duo comprised of seasoned sketch comedians Eric Greenbaum and Joe Harrington. As part of their larger group, “Boneless”, they previously performed at Austin Sketch Fest and have had runs at The Second City, The Annoyance Theater, The IO Theater, Brooklyn Comedy Collective, and Under St. Marks. They have spent the last five years being staples of the Chicago sketch scene, performing regularly across the city. As a duo, Joe and Eric combine their absurd sensibilities with high concept ideas. Their sketches are as insane, silly, and stupid as they come – but everything is approached with a level of seriousness that creates a surreal world where anything is possible.
Bring Your Own Bob
Bring Your Own Bob is a vibrant, sweet yet grotesque, and beyond bizarre sketch, improv and musical comedy duo living together in NYC. Just when they thought they’d reached their friend quota, Seann Cantatore and Nicole Pascaretta (BYOB) met through improv in 2019 and have been sequined soulmates ever since. BYOB has performed at the New York Musical Improv Festival and the Detroit Improv Festival and has frequented stages such as The PIT, Magnet Theater and The DC Improv. Nicole and Seann are real-life roommates and best friends, adding a unique layer of connection and pure magic on stage.
