Made up of eight UCB and Magnet kids, Tush was formed in August 2014, only to become a comedy force majeure in various bar basements and comedy theater stages. Using long-form improv, Tush will transport the audience to a time in the future, not so long ago. When not performing improv, the Tush kids can be found playing “Bad Rap” up and down the A train, much to the delight of commuters.
Archaeological evidence suggests that Pancake Aces are probably the earliest and most widespread improv team in prehistoric societies. Known as Crêpe Aces in Europe, the group’s performances are filled with jam, cheese cream and many other fillings, both sweet or savory. The Ace embellishment started when King James VI of Scotland and England required an insignia of the group to be used in conjunction with Pancakes. This insignia was necessary for identifying the group among the many other performance units originating around that time. Most members survive today having taken up residence in America, performing mainly at indie venues on the east coast.

The cast of EIGHT IS NEVER ENOUGH delivers hilarious musical comedy based on audience suggestions and participation. WHOSE LINE IS IT ANYWAY meets Off Broadway Review. The all professional cast includes talent from TV, FILM and even Broadway. Since 2002 EIGHT IS NEVER ENOUGH has presented 5000+ show in Times Square and touring nationwide.
8pm SHOW 18+ Although some older families (teens & up) will find the show acceptable, but the core audience is college and older.
MONDAYS 8pm ON THE SPOT
Great singers present the best of NYC Cabaret. Players from LMAO spin into scenes inspired by the titles, lyrics and themes of the songs. The result is an original musical comedy every night stringing 8-10 random songs together by the spontaneously created book.
