Champange, the sketch comedy duo, not the alcoholic beverage

(Please note, for this and plenty of other things I post, especially those that aren't local, I have no idea what this is but it magically landed in my inbox, so I am not so much endorsing it as passing along the info. Even though I'll be unable to attend, I do wholeheartedly endorse you going to see Baron Vaughn's one man show "Actor. Comedian. Negro." tonight or the 6th or 7th, as part of the Midtown Theatre Festival.)

AUGUST 4, NEW YORK – Seattle sketch comedy duo
Champagne bring their critically acclaimed show
to New York City for one night only: Friday,
August 26 at 11:00PM; at The PIT, 154 W. 29th
Street (between 6th and 7th Avenues).

Mike Daisey, author of “21 Dog Years: Doing Time
@” said that Champagne is: “Immensely
delightful. They made me miss doing sketch, which
takes some doing--sketch can be a cruel mistress,
but when it all goes right with genius and precision it's absolutely fabulous.”

Champagne is Troy Fischnaller and Dusty Warren,
two members of Seattle’s acclaimed sketch group,
Flaming Box of Stuff, as well as being founding
members of Some Kind of Cult (HBO’s Sketch Pad
2). They have performed all over the country with
both groups, but this is the New York premiere of their brand new show.

The show is produced by Elizabeth Ellis, Becky
Poole, and Alexander Zalben, the team behind this
past June’s SketchFest NYC (

Tickets are $8, and can be purchased at, or by calling 1-800-838-3006.
