Hot Models in Bikinis & Comickaze | Friday Feb 28th | 10pm

HOT MODELS IN BIKINIS! Have we got your attention? Good. Because when and IF we are wearing bathing suits we are HOT (literally because it's probably summer). But, let's get straight to the point. We are a talented bunch of women from Richmond, Virginia and we write and perform sketches about all things female. If you don’t think period blood is funny, then kindly....sit down and enjoy the show.

 

Comic Kaze

ComicKaze is the stray puppy of the Push Comedy Theater. Adorable and dirty. Playful and rambunctious. Likely to pee on your floor.

And, like a stray puppy, we might get a little messy but we promise we mean well.

Louie, Yes Anderson & Hammertoad | Sat. Feb 29th | 7pm

Louie, Yes Anderson

Nashville, TN

As with all ideas that shouldn’t work, Louie Yes Anderson started as a joke at a bar. But surprise, this show does work. A goofy form works hand in hand with grounded improv to bring about a show you never thought would exist. Call backs, call forwards, time dashes, nothing is off the table when exploring these Louies' lives. Watch two buddies have a good time and be Louie Andersons.

 

HammerToad

From TV's "Television Shows" and Film's "Movies", these 2 morons take you through the ringer and straight to voicemail. They've shared the screen with greats such as Robin Williams, Anthony Anderson, Collin Hanks, Nat Faxon, Dakota Johnson and many many many more... They also just proudly became part of the famous Troubies Theater Company.

They do funny things. Kind of, a lot.

Gentleman’s Falcon specializes in attacking the scene with high energy, physicality, and a penchant for whimsy. Gentleman’s Falcon is: James Dugan, Drew Eiden, Mike Kauffman, and Henry Riggs. CAW!
