City Theatre Welcomes The Pajama Men for JUST THE TWO OF US, Now thru 9/7

City Theatre wraps up August with the Pittsburgh debut of award-winning sketch comedians The Pajama Men, performing their brand new show Just the Two of Each of Us. This City Events special presentation will run on City Theatre's Mainstage today, August 27 - September 7, 2014. Press night is Thursday, August 28 at 8pm.

Critically-acclaimed comedy duo The Pajama Men bring their trademark style of blink-of-an-eye character switches and sidesplitting humor to Pittsburgh! Originally from Albuquerque, the sketch comedians and masters of improv have become stars of the international comedy circuit, earning five stars from the London Times and comparisons to comic luminaries including Abbott and Costello, Monty Python, and "South Park."

"Without elaborate costumes or props, The Pajama Men produce a riotous, theatrical evening of smart comedy-the kind that makes you laugh so hard it hurts," says Tracy Brigden, City Theatre's Artistic Director. "Expect fast-paced physical comedy and outlandish characters that you won't find watching stand-up at a club. It is truly something you have never seen before. These guys take hilarity to new heights."

The Pajama Men are Shenoah Allen and Mark Chavez. The duo met in high school in the early 1990s in Albuquerque, auditioning for the high school improv team. It was at a time when having three side-by-side mohawks seemed like a good idea to Shenoah, and Mark was annually being voted class clown. They were teenagers. They didn't know where they were headed, but they found, in each other, a vast ocean of bizarre, imaginary worlds that they chose to live in. The immeasurable blandness of their suburban surroundings became a blank canvas, and they spent their time talking in ridiculous voices to each other, absentmindedly creating long soap operas between characters that they spent more time inhabiting than they did being their "normal" selves. Eventually the lack of creative influences in the vicinity allowed, for better or worse, their unique comic voice to emerge in the form of partially-improvised, multi-character, narrative-sketch comedy shows. They have since written nine shows together and toured them to theatres and festivals around the world, receiving awards and acclaim, including "Double Act of the Year" by the London Times.
