While in the UK in 2009 they wrote and shot sketches for Brown Eyed Boy Productions pilot “Laughter Shock” (BBC3) and in 2010 they wrote and performed the short “Deal with it Bitch,” produced by Brown Eyed Boy. They recieved a fellowship with Voice and Vision Theater in 2011 and were invited to the ENVISION retreat where they wrote their first narrative full length show “The Underdeveloped and Overexposed Life and Death of Deena Domino.” The show, a darkly absurd rumination on celebrity, was received with rave reviews at the New York Fringe and Capital Fringe in DC. They have been critics picks in Time Out New York, Washington Post, and Charleston City Paper and have been highlighted in WNYC Culture Blog, Heeb Magazine, Gorgeous Ladies of Comedy.net, Pomp & Circumstance, and Pluck Magazine. They have a residency at The People’s Improv Theater in NYC where they write and perform a new sketch show every month. Most recently, they were named one of the twenty-five funny people that should have their own TV show by Complex Magazine.
