Musical Comedy is a safe space for American Idol rejects, those who consider "showtunes" to be a musical genre, and fans of Mamma Mia 2. Through an unbeatable combination of original, comedic lyrics and stand-up, host Ziwe (Baited with Ziwe on Above Average, The Rundown with Robin Thede on BET) and producer Jamie Rabinovitch (Casual Town, All Kidding Aside) welcome some of the most angelic and hypnotic voices to the stage, serving you a unforgettable night of musical comedy! Performers of Off Off Off Broadway include Friends Who Folk (The New Yorker), Larry Owens (TruTV, feature film “To Dust”), Reformed Whores (2 Dope Queens, Edinburgh Fringe Festival), Dewayne Perkins (Netflix's The Break with Michelle Wolf), Ayo Edebiri (The Rundown with Robin Thede on BET), and Community Dance Corps (Comedy’s favorite dance team).
