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.
Robin McNamara/ Only Child
Robin is an only child who grew up exploring the depths of her own imagination and discovering the true wonders of the theater. This show takes place in a mystical magical circus land where you’ll meet wacky characters and hear stories galore. Join on this wild adventure of mystery and theatrics. It will be an experimental ride of silly!


Claire Driscoll/ Freakshow
Claire Durkin is an award-winning stand-up comic (QUEERFEST NYC) and filmmaker often centering her comedy around her massive family. Freakshow is an autobiographical show from Claire Durkin’s perspective of growing up with an extremely disabled father in rural Ohio. Claire utilizes dark comedy to walk the audience through her life from eight to thirteen years old, taking care of her comatose father with her 13 siblings and mother while struggling to stay above the poverty line. This is a dramatic show with tones of comedy throughout. Claire’s goal is to make an audience rethink their relationship with their own bodies and to gain a new perspective on what it means to be a caregiver.


Sebastian Martinez/ SOLO-PROV
Oh no! Sebastian Martinez forgot to write his solo-show! But don’t panic! Sebastian has found something to do “solo”. That’s right…..IMPROV! Will it work? Will he Yes And himself? Will he support himself? These questions will be answered at SOLO-PROV!


Reagan Allen/ Untitled Reagan Allen WIP
Reagan Allen will do some amount of new material for you– yes, you! There may be stories, there may be stand-up, there may be music. She’s not making any promises, because she frankly hasn’t started writing yet. The only guarantee? Good American Humor. GAH, for short. Come take your seat at the legendary PIT Loft as we find out together what that might look/ sound/ feel like.
