The comedic duo Andrea Alton and Allen Warnock return to the 20th Annual New York International Fringe Festival with their new comedy A Microwaved Burrito Filled With E. coli. Written by Alton and Warnock who previously worked together on the critically acclaimed 2008 FringeNYC production of Carl & Shelly: Best Friends Forever which went on to a commercial run in 2010. In addition, they’ve performed together at the Chicago, DC, Provincetown, MA, and Toronto Sketch Comedy & Theatre Festivals, HOT! Festival at Dixon Place, and The PIT and UCB in New York.
Mark Finley who is the Artistic Director of The Other Side of Silence (TOSOS) which is the oldest LGBT Theatre in New York, directs. Additional FringeNYC directing credits include the hit productions, The Secretaries, and The F*cking World According To Molly. The play is being produced in association with the Award-Winning Emerging Artists Theatre Company who won an American Theatre Wing Award for Consistent Commitment to Excellence in Theatre.
A Microwaved Burrito Filled With E. coli is a cracked-out comedy starring Molly "Equality" Dykeman (who returns to FringeNYC after the hit 2011 comedy The F*cking World According to Molly), NYC's favorite poet/security guard. This time, Molly attends a lesbian wedding reception at a Mexican restaurant so far out in Brooklyn, that it's probably in Queens. It's here that she meets a Southern chatterbox waitress, Angie Louise Angelone (Star of the 2015 HOT! Festival). While Molly just wants to escape the wedding and eat some microwaved nachos in peace, she ends up getting something with more hidden layers than a bean dip. www.amicrowavedburrito.com
