Uncle Function is a sketch comedy group based in New York City. It was formed in 2015 with the help of Tony Award-winning producer Ken Davenport (Kinky Boots, Once On This Island ). Uncle Function is written by and features Chris Cafero (Inventing Anna/Netflix, The Other Two/Comedy Central), Russell Daniels (UCB Maude Night) , Jessica Frey (The Characters/Netflix), Douglas Goodhart ("Discover Card Guy"), and Gianmarco Soresi (Hustlers, Deception/ABC).

Since their inception, The Uncles have performed at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theater (UCB), Davenport Theatre, Broadway Comedy Club, The Tank Theater, Ensemble Studio Theatre and The Peoples Improv Theater. They have headlined Toronto Sketch Festival and NYC SketchFest. Their work has been featured on ABC, Funny or Die, HuffPost, and more. These Uncles, just like your real uncles, will make you laugh, cry, think, feel moderately uncomfortable and then send you back to your parents, forever changed.
