Banana Breakup

High-flying comedy from two frenetic improvisers powered by Red Bull. 7-time DSI CageMatch Champions and headline act at the North Carolina Comedy Arts Festival and Black Box Improv Festival for the past three years, Kit FitzSimons and Eitan Lees perform the highest-energy two-man longform improv you will see this side of Saturday morning television. More fun than a barrel of Roombas, their motto is “The Floor Is Lava” – the entire show takes place on top of ladders, stage blocks and whatever else their mandatory waivers will allow. Come fear for their safety; you won’t be sorry. Banana Breakup: GO!

Tickets for this performance are still available!
