The Garys are a team of seven NYC-based long-form improvisers who met in 2009 while training at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theater. Collectively, members have studied improv, sketch and theater at UCB, The Magnet (NYC), Second City (Chicago), BMI, and with teachers from iO (Chicago). We have performed at venues all over NYC as well as at the Boston Improv Festival, the Providence Improv Festival, the UCB Del Close Marathon, the NYC Improv Festival and the Chicago Improv Festival, amongst others.
We produce and host Overtime (NSFW), a 75 minute comedy show, consisting of a series of scenes inspired by an audience member interview about the thing we all love to hate: work! We also produce and host The Garathon, an annual elimination-style, sixteen-team improv tournament at The Tank Theater in New York City.
If you are interested in booking The Garys in an upcoming show (in the northeast or on your college campus) please contact us here or at meetthegarys (at) gmail (dot) com.
Does your boss make awkward and inappropriate jokes constantly? Do you have a co-worker who loudly argues with his wife over the phone all day? Are you the person with an obscure job tale you’d like to share? Well, then, we want to hear from you!
Overtime (NSFW) is a comedy show at The Tank Theater, produced and hosted by us, The Garys, where an audience member interview about a past or present job inspires a series of improvised scenes.
