PUNCH 59 Sketch Comedy is intelligent, irreverent sketch comedy with NO IMPROV!

We are proud to feature "Movie, Movie", written by Thomas Meehan ("The Producers") as part of our show. Originally published in the New Yorker, "Movie, Movie" features the characters Bonnie and Clyde, who meet "in Coney Island; in shadows and fog", and their ensuing dialogue consists only of movie titles.

The cast is Jen Ryan (FringeNYC Outstanding Performance Award), Traci Hovel ("30 Rock"). Rik Sansone (Summer '69), Adam P. Murphy ("Easy Outs"), Marek Sapieyweski, and Rebecca Lewis-Whitson.

Tickets are available at the box-office day of show. Industry comps are always available.
