PUNCH 59 Sketch Comedy  | Open: 10/20/08 Close: 10/28/08
PUNCH 59 is intelligent, irreverent sketch comedy with sketches like "Duane Rude", "BBC's Baby Time", and "Interfaith Understandings with Rev. Bill and Betty". If you like SNL you'll LOVE PUNCH 59!

We are proud to feature Thomas Meehan's "Movie, Movie" 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.

PUNCH 59's cast is Jen Ryan (NYMF 08: "Wrapped"; NYCFringe Outstanding Performance), Rik Sansone ("Summer '69"), Adam P. Murphy ("Easy Outs"), Traci Hovel ("30 Rock"), Melisa Breiner-Sanders ("Becket"), Carlos Espada, and Marek Sapieyewski.

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). Mr. Meehan is a long-time contributor of humor to The New Yorker, an Emmy Award-winning writer of television comedy, and a collaborator on a number of screenplays including Mel Brooks' Spaceballs and To Be or Not to Be. Mr. Meehan's "Movie, Movie" was adapted for the stage by Jen Ryan and PUNCH 59 is the only troupe in the world currently performing it.
