The Berserker Residents are dedicated to original works of alternative comedy with a pop-comic aesthetic. This team of Philadelphia-based specialists in site-specific overgrown kid theater consists of three mighty warriors – collaborators Justin Jain, David Johnson, and Bradley K. Wrenn. As a collective, these three Philly-based artists have spearheaded a comedic theatrical style that blends absurdist theatre, subversive sensibilities, music, sketch, and prop comedy to create compelling and fantastic theatrical events. The Berserker Residents repertoire includes: The Jersey Devil, The Giant Squid: a scientific lecture gone awry of which the Philadelphia Inquirer said “The Giant Squid is innovative, packed with little surprises, fine-tuned, and wonderfully wacky… And it sizzles.” The Annihilation Point, two commissions: The Very Merry Xmas Carol Holiday Adventure Show (which was published by Playscripts Inc.) and The Lapsburgh Layover at New York based Ars Nova. Their most recent production The Talkback/ The Post Show was critically acclaimed at the 2014 Edinburgh Fringe.
