HOFFMAN: Hoffman is a veteran Phit improv team with a penchant for playing big characters and sharing yarns both truthful and delightfully absurd. The cast includes Kayleigh Liggitt, Andrew Sigwart, Whitney Rumble, Jacob Todd, Peter Szekeres, and Sean Keegan-Landis – improvisers who have been getting weird with each other for more than half a decade. So they’re pretty comfortable making each other look silly, dumb, and pleasantly outlandish for your enjoyment.
NYTEShift: This dope-ass comedy troupe comprised of multi-talented racial minorities takes to the stage for their first show since the before times. Straight up “haha’s” for days. Just a few Americans trying to express ourselves. Features Keane Cobb, Kelly Conrad, Jabari Dortch, Marcely Jean-Pierre, Tia Kemp, James Knight, and Randie Welles.
Appropriate for Ages 18+
