Dances With Wolfshirts

Sketch Group A Week of Kindness Presents: Dances With Wolfshirts
New York, NY-August 15th

Only two chances remain to see A Week of Kindness, New York’s most merciless sketch comedy group, in their fifth all-new show. Dances with Wolfshirts, at the Peoples Improv Theatre. Running the next two Tuesdays at 9:30pm, time is quickly running out to see the show nytheatre.com calls “a spirited, scabrous, and totally beside-the-point exploration of the post-capitalist trend cycle.”

“Like the Seinfeld cast, Hopper, Kushner, and Still know how to carry off a scene, turning nothing into something…. Each of the three performers has an amazing presence...”
-Doug Strassler, offoffonline.com

Dances with Wolfshirts explores, through AWOK’s usual blend of high-energy, high-wit live performance and often-demented short films, the lifecycle of trends, immersing the audience in a world of soup addicts, frivolous surgery, and, of course, lots of awesome t-shirts with huge wolves on them. Dances with Wolfshirts is written and performed by Dan Hopper, Nate Kushner, and Mike Still, with guest appearances by a parade of New York City’s alternative comedians, including Chris O’Connor of Fearsome and Becky Yamamoto of Stickerbook.

“[made] me laugh until I veered into the seating aisle.”

-Kyle Ancowitz, nytheatre.com
