Manhattan, New York (PRWEB) August 16, 2013
The 6th International Sketch Comedy Championships is taking place on Wednesday, August 28, 2013, at 8:45 PM at Triad Stage 72 and will be featuring some of the world’s best sketch comedy groups who will compete to win the coveted title which will entitle the winning group to a wide array of career-making opportunities. A relatively new sketch team, Garlic Jackson Comedy, will be one of the four international sketch comedy groups competing.
Garlic Jackson Comedy group features writers and performers from College Humor, The Late Show, UCB, Above Average Network & ESPN. Written & performed by Zack Bornstein, Adam Wagner, Adam Weinrib, Sam Klemmer, Will Tempfer, Lauren Ireland, Caralyn Stone and Anna Callegari, they have designed a smart, fast-paced sketch & stand-up hour guaranteed to impress. New York Times has even called them "Some of the city’s best writers and performers" who "collide in this energetic show."
The individuals of the team have performed in other groups together for the past 4 years; however, Garlic Jackson actually began at the The People's Improv Theater (PIT's) mainstage in May 2013 and have been producing sketch videos online for a year.
Zack Bornstein, Adam Wagner, and Adam Weinrib, the show’s three spectacular performers/writers/producers, performed comedy together in school at Brown University in Rhode Island, and when they got to NYC, they put together a team of performers they had produced sketches with at CollegeHumor, UCB, Maker Studios, Tribeca Films and more.
Garlic Jackson Comedy brings Garlic Jackson Live!, presents a new hour of freshly-minced sketch comedy every month and features hilarious comics and TV writers. The group writes and performs their own material and rarely swears. The sketches interweave running jokes, characters, and media throughout the hour that culminates in a big musical number.
Garlic Jackson Live! features a buffet of multimedia, from videos, to powerpoints, to music. Producer Zack Bornstein summarizes: “Our character monologues with powerpoints have distinguished us for years. Also, we rarely resort to swearing, sex, crazy-town, or yelling, preferring to make a satirical point with every sketch, making Garlic Jackson Live fun for the whole family.”
