Shenoah Allen and Mark Chavez are The Pajama Men, winners of the 2005 Edinburgh Fringe Festival Double Act Award, as well as critical acclaim and awards at festivals and venues across Europe and North America. The Pajama Men’s shows have often been called “indescribable.” They are known for swapping and changing characters in a split second, weaving together multiple story lines, and engaging in some of the most unique and hilarious physical comedy you will ever see.

Alan Hindle of Canada’s Globe and Mail writes, “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.”


Following the Pajama Men performances here on their home turf Second City presents The Pajama Men for a month run at the Steppenwolf Garage theatre through Steppenwolf’s Visiting Company Initiative. This marks the first collaboration between The Second City and Steppenwolf Theatre Company – two of Chicago’s premier theatrical organizations.

“When we discovered this incredible comic pair at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, we knew that they deserved to perform on a very special stage in Chicago – not a late night run or an off-night cabaret experience,” notes Second City Theatricals President Kelly Leonard.

“Steppenwolf is excited to extend our Visiting Company Initiative to our friends at Second City, in hopes of expanding the artistic dialogue among our collective audiences,” says Steppenwolf Artistic Director Martha Lavey.
