The Peoples Improv Theater proudly announces the 10TH ANNUAL SOLOCOM!
SOLOCOM NYC has launched over 400 new solo comedies that have gone on to longer runs, tours and festivals around the world (including the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.) 
SOLOCOM NYC is a festival of new solo work. All shows presented are 75% – 100% new material, and are created specifically for the festival. SOLOCOM’s goal is to push artists to create a show that is meaningful, personal and to follow the fear.
John Barrett/ Why Am I Like This?
John has problems, and the stakes could never be lower. With a birthday coming up that he is not prepared for compounding the stresses of being seen as an actual adult, John is forced to ask: Why Am I Like This?


April Storm Perry/ Accept or Decline
April takes us from a tough New York City girl, and “sweet” Southern Bell, to pursuing her passions as a performing artist in NYC, to experiencing life as she knew it crumble before her eyes, and how she put it all back together again…-ish. Share in this roller coaster ride of April’s life and how she lives up to the name April Storm Perry in this revealing coming-of-age story — just a few decades later than most. 


Marina Petrova/ Not what my mother hoped for
I want to combine my Moth winning stories and my stand up material into a 15-20 minute story. All material is about my childhood in Russia with my narcissistic abusive mother and only realising I was gaslighted later in life. I like to mix strong authentic emotional moments and comedy.


Stefanie Kay Sparks/ GHOST STORIES
When I was 17 years old my mom ghosted me. Join me as I work through the shame and opportunities that being ghosted by your mom opens up for a person. Even Jeffrey Dahmer had a mom and she defended him after he literally killed many people but also, being motherless does allow you to kinda do whatever you want. Lemonade.
