The Annoyance Residency: Postmen
April 8, 2017 @ 9:00 pm - 10:00 pm
ABOUT THE ANNOYANCE RESIDENCY
Continuing its longstanding record of bringing the best emerging comedic talent in the country straight to Philadelphia audiences, PHIT Comedy is excited to be partnering with the famous Annoyance Theatre’s New York branch This April for a series of eight performances across every weekend of the month. PHIT and Annoyance have partnered to bring shows to Phillly since 2007 and this special month-long residency is a celebration of their decade-long collaboration.
AT THIS ANNOYANCE RESIDENCY SHOW…
A wild, frenetic sketch comedy play that moves seamlessly from sketch to sketch, every joke building on the last in an unrelenting game of one-upmanship between the three performers.
Anthony Oberbeck, Matt Barats, and Carmen Christopher have been performing together for 6 years, first in Chicago and now in New York. They are all featured performers in the Annoyance Theatre’s Holy Fuck Comedy Hour, and they perform a weekly improv show in Brooklyn described as “the best improv in the city”.
Matt Barats was featured in the 2015 Montreal Just For Laughs New Faces showcase. Carmen Christopher was a Comedy Central Comic to Watch in 2016. Anthony Oberbeck was a featured performer in the Chicago Just For Laughs Festival in 2012 and 2013. The three have created sketch videos and pilots for IFC, Comedy Central, Above Average, and Super Deluxe.
