Known as the Wright Brothers of the Unwritten, TJ& DAVE create full-length, hour-long plays from scratch (without audience suggestions). Always funny, they are also revered for their insightful, and deeply movingoutcomes. And what makes them all the more remarkable -- fans attest -- is that these dazzling feats of comedic and acting ingenuity NEVER recycle stories or characters. Trust them -- it is all made up.
"One of these guys is the best improvisor in the world. And the other one is better." -- Stephen Colbert
"Masters of long from improv. A playful verbal wit, stubborn refusal to go for the cheap laugh and most of all, an empathetic streak give their comedy a resonance and depth." -- The New York Times
"BRILLIANT, HEARTBREAKING, MIND-BLOWING, INSPIRING! The best 50 minutes of improv comedy that we've ever seen. But we wouldn't want to insult their effusive skills by speaking so simplistically. Also, it's funny. Drink their Kool-Aid." -- Time Out NY
