About the Show

Written by Reed Martin & Austin Tichenor
Directed by Jerry Kernion

Opening Night is March 31 at 8pm.

From the high-brow to the low, this fast-paced ride covers comedy through the ages, from Aristophanes to Shakespeare, Moliere to Vaudeville, Charlie Chaplin to The Daily Show. Find answers to the age-old questions, "Who's on first?" and "Why did the chicken cross the road?"

"A wild, wild ride! It's funny. Really, really funny…and most of all, it's really, really smart." – Cincinnati Enquirer

"The Complete History of Comedy (abridged) is a master class in the art form." – Broadway World

"Audacious, often outrageous and bawdy, the frantic pacing of "Comedy" reminds you of an old-time burlesque or vaudeville review." – Boston Stages

Talkback Thursdays

Ticketholders attending Thursday night performances on April 6, 13, & 20 are welcome to participate in an informal Q&A discussion with members of the show
