BriTANicK featuring What Now?
November 2, 2023 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 8:00 pm, repeating until November 3, 2023
BriTANicK is the award-winning comedy duo of Brian McElhaney and Nick Kocher. BriTANicK’s two-person sketch show is a hyper-paced, meticulously crafted, manic whirlwind of joy and chaos. Blending comedy influences from classic vaudeville, witty wordplay, absurdism, and meta-deconstruction; expect to be enveloped by fast-paced choreography and head-scratching absurdity.
Brian and Nick have been nominated for an Emmy Award and named in Variety’s Top 10 Comics to Watch. Together they have written for “Saturday Night Live,” “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia,” and a bunch of other shows that you’ve never heard of.
BriTANicK regularly perform to sold out crowds in New York and Los Angeles and their online videos have amassed over 50 million views, creating a fanbase from all over the world. They have performed sold-out runs at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Montreal’s Just For Laughs Festival, and the Soho Theatre in London. This show is for everyone who wants to feel smart and silly at the exact same time. Brian and Nick have a pathological devotion to nonsense and put a ridiculous and ill-advised amount of effort into each sketch, balancing intellectual complexity with wild idiocy.
Together, they have acted in “How I Met Your Mother,” Balls Out, Searching For Sonny, and Joss Whedon’s Much Ado About Nothing. They wrote for the FOX TV show “The Goodwin Games,” made a pilot for Comedy Central, and wrote a time travel movie for Lionsgate. Their short film Eagles Are Turning People Into Horses screened in the 2010 Slamdance and SXSW film festivals. They were the voices of Cartoon Network for 6 years.
BriTANicK is the name they decided to perform under 6 years ago and now it’s too late to change it.
