Dave and Ethan

Dave and Ethan are childhood friends who on a whim, decided to make a video on Youtube in March of 2008 challenging girls to double date them. This venture was successful as they’d gotten e-mails from over 2000 pairs of girls and went on close to 200 double dates. They decided to create a youtube channel in which they tracked their successes and many failures. This lead to a live show which was performed to sold out audiences at The People’s Improv Theater in NYC in which they discussed their dating adventures.   It has now evolved into a 100+ college tour in 2011. They ask somebody in the crowd  to come on stage and describe their worst first date ever. They then re-enact the first date (dramatized heavily) and then improvise the same date again, but the 2nd time showing how things could have gone better.

Tickets for this performance are still available!
