Patty & Emily came to New York separately with a love of musical theatre, sarcasm, and sass. They met in improv class at the Upright Citizens Brigade, forming an instant bond over how amazing Patti LuPone is, and eventually started a Vlog. Mixing their theatre knowledge with their snarky senses of humor, their Vlog soon gained attention from Tony nominees and Broadway producers. As special correspondents for Memphis, Patty & Emily interviewed the cast at the Tony after party and hosted the "Memmy Awards" for Memphis's one year Broadway anniversary. Their comedy videos have been featured by Broadway musicals Newsies, Leap of Faith, and Lysistrata Jones.
