Take their advice: Stop not going! Immediately!

Mikaela says:
Hey, if you missed the hilarious performance from Albuquerque's own Shenoah Allen and Mark Chavez at Q-Staff Theatre last spring, you have another chance to atone for your egregious oversight and venial sin (Okay, I just made that up; I don't really know what venial sin is, but it sounds really really bad, which is what I want to convey here).

These guys took the show on the road, most notably to Chicago's Second City comedy club and got rave reviews. Don't miss them again! You'll kick yourself. (Or I will!)

Apologies to all the great comedies I've seen at the Fringe this year, but this is easily the best. The Pajama Men, Shenoah Allen and Mark Chavez, virtually paralyze the audience with laughter. Folks could be dying out there, unable to breathe between sobs of hilarity, and they would just keep going. Faster than whippets whip, these two super-clowns melt through endless layers of comedy and you have no idea how much is improvised, rehearsed or the result of a comic blackout from which the two performers will emerge hours after the show, soaked in sweat and each other's spit, wondering what happened but feeling closer to God. They kid. I kid you not.

As they say themselves: "Our teeth are sunk firmly into the ass of the future!"

Here for an encore performance are The Pajama Men, performing their dynamic-duo-half-improv-half-comedy show:
