Now entering its fifth year, SOLOCOM is a unique solo show festival that has launched over 400 new solo comedies that have gone on to longer runs, tours and festivals around the world. This 4-day festival in NYC takes place in 3.5 spaces at The Peoples Improv Theater in the Flatiron District and at The PIT Loft in Chelsea from November 16 - 19, 2017.

Marino and The PIT created SOLOCOM to provide artists with a platform in which to generate new comedic solo material. Dozens of shows that made their debut at SOLOCOM 2013-2016 have gone on to tour the world and play at various festivals including Edinburgh Fringe, Hollywood Fringe, NC Comedy Arts Festival, Philly Fringe, Scranton Fringe and Orlando Fringe. Gary Busey's One-Man Hamlet as Performed by David Carl began at SOLOCOM before becoming the breakout hit of The New York International Fringe, transferring to Edinburgh, followed by critically acclaimed runs in NYC and Chicago.
