FRIDAY @ 10PM
Junior Varsity was formed by Armando Diaz at the Magnet Theater in 2007. They have taught and performed at the Chicago Improv Festival, Rochester's Fall Back Festival, the New Orleans Improv Festival, Philadelphia Improv Festival, Toronto Improv Festival, the Del Close Marathon, Providence Improv Festival, Boston Comedy Arts Festival and the North Carolina Comedy Arts Festival.
Members of JV have written contributions for Saturday Night Live, TimeOut NY, MTV2's Subterranean, the NY Times Magazine, Comedy Central online, Quirky.com and have been featured on The Late Show with David Letterman, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, ESPN, MTVU, MTV online, The Today Show, The Colbert Report, and in the NY Post. You may have also seen two of them on Norwegian Cruise Lines improvising with Second City. They are most known for their devastating good looks.
Magnet Theater veterans Alan Fessenden (Magnet TourCo, Hello Laser, The Weave), Michael Lutton (Magnet TourCo, Horses, Made-Up Musical), Jason Scott Quinn (Legend, Dr. Champagne, Company 29), and Emily Shapiro (The Wrath, Phooka, The Weird Sisters) combine to bring you the sweetest character-driven improv on the planet.
Now that the east coast – west coast beef has subsided, North Coast is stepping up to throw down. Watch as New York’s premier freestyle rapping, beatboxing, long-form improv team performs a fully improvised “hip-hopera” right in front of your very eyes.
Their show is upbeat and energetic from start to finish. You provide your suggestion and North Coast will make your gut bust and your head bop.
And if you don’t know, now you know.
