PUNCH 59 is intelligent, irreverent sketch comedy and STARR REICH HUNTER is some damn funny improv. For five bucks, who could ask for more?

In addition to sketches like “Duane Rude,” “BBC’s Baby Time,” and “I Woke Up Racist,” PUNCH 59 features a Thomas Meehan one-act, "Movie, Movie". Originally published in the New Yorker, "Movie, Movie" features the characters Bonnie and Clyde, who meet "in Coney Island, in shadows and fog...” Their ensuing dialogue consists only of movie titles.

Thomas Meehan received his first Tony Award in 1977 for writing the book for Annie, his Broadway debut, and subsequently won for The Producers (2001) and Hairspray (2002). He is the writer of the Broadway versions of Cry-Baby and Young Frankenstein, a longtime contributor of humor to the New Yorker, an Emmy Award winner, and the co-writer of the screenplays for Spaceballs and To Be or Not to Be.

PUNCH 59’s cast is Jen Ryan (NYC Fringe Outstanding Performance Award), Rik Sansone (Summer of ’69), Adam P. Murphy (the voice of Sean John’s “I Am King”), Melisa Breiner-Sanders (“The Knot”), Rebecca Lewis-Whitson, Carlos Espada (KISS Nation), and Marek Sapieyevski (“Easy Outs”). Directed by Jen Ryan.

STARR-REICH-HUNTER is Noah Starr (co-star of the Food Network’s "Ask Aida"), Mikal Reich, and Lauren Hunter. Their shared love of improv based in reality inspires them to create their ninja-less, pirate-less, trips-to-mars-less form. Directed by Alex Marino.

Tickets are available at the door or by calling the BROADWAY COMEDY CLUB at 212-757-2323.

UCB and PIT students, bring proof of current enrollment and GET IN FREE (drink minimum applies).
