Incredibly vicious and relentlessly hilarious.” – Time Out New York “Dangerously funny sketch comedy by three legends of downtown theater.” – Theater Is Easy ‘Best Bet’ Buckle up your bustier and bite down on your ball-gag because Unitard — NYC’s naughtiest, nastiest, no-holds-barred comic trio — is back! These arbiters of biting bitchiness and snappy satire are returning to Joe’s Pub just in time to give our crappy culture the tasteless tongue-lashing it deserves. Ouch! This tarty trio has been raising heckles, hackles and chuckles for almost 2 decades with their special brand of kinky comedy. After helping audiences survive 9/11, the Great Recession, and the Kardashian tsunami, they are returning to take on the current kleptocratic apocalypse like a flatulent phoenix rising from the ashes. Watch them pierce political patriarchy, prey on social hypocrisy, and parody everything from polyamory to Pyongyang, activism to Ann Coulter, protests to pop-up shops. Tard Core is a scathing yet soothing salve in these sucky times. Bend over and take it like Bannon.
