One great duo from Philly, a pair representing Portland and Austin, and a diva from New York City. It’s American hysterical comedy from the four corners of the country… if you squint and don’t get too focused on the geometry. There will be jokes. There will be characters. There will be music!

Featuring: Miller & Castellvi, The Amie & Kristen Show and Stacejam

Two great UK comedy duos in a night of big comedy named after something none of them probably voted for. McGathy & Miller’s unique and funny improv form shows a relationship in reverse. It starts with a breakup and then goes backwards until we see the cute way they met. And then, there is our own amazing duo, Simon Lukasc and Simon Feilder!

Featuring: McGathy & Miller, Simon Lukacs & Simon Feilder
