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?”  No joke is left untold as the talented trio deconstruct and put back together the entire history of comedy.

Warning: The side effects of this play may include groan-worthy humor, uncontrollable laughter, and painful running-gags.

“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
