DUOFEST: Michael Loves Greg + Sad Kids

Saturday, June 8, 2013, 6:02 PM


Duofest is back, and our fourth year promises to be the biggest yet. The best improv duos from around the country and the world will descend upon Philadelphia, PA from June 6th-9th, 2013. Over 4 days, we’ll present 30+ groups that have just 2 members.

Michael Loves Greg is an improv comedy duo starring Michael McFarland (co-found of the Philadelphia Improv Festival, Duofest, and the New York City Improv Festival) and Greg Maughan (co-founder, Philly Improv Theater and Duofest). As longtime friends and performing partners Michael and Greg know exactly how to push each others buttons – creating a show that’s a slow burn starting in real world and ending up anywhere you could imagine.

What feelings would be evoked if two children, separated by their parents divorce, were reunited years later on the shores of the Danube? Such is the mood elicited by the improv comedy sensation: Sad Kids. They give you deadpan takes on everything from eccentric millionaires to eccentric poor people and all the eccentricities in between. Starring: Julia Hynes and Beth Newell.
