DUOFEST: The Kristen & Amie Show + Upstate

Saturday, June 8, 2013, 10:02 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.

Amie and Kristen generate a girly, risky, playful, fully improvised show by morphing the sound and physicality of one scene into the next. The use of these organic transitions results in fluid and fast paced show that never stops!

Amie and Kristen are based in Philadelphia and have been performing together for three years.  They were winners of Philadelphia Comedy WitOut award for “Best Small Improv Group” in 2011. They have appeared at many festivals including: Out of Bounds (Austin, TX), Vancouver International Improv Festival (Vancouver, BC), Big City Improv Festival (Toronto, ONT), Del Close Marathon (NYC, NY), Baltimore Improv Festival (Baltimore, MD) Chicago Improv Festival (Chicago, IL), Providence Improv Festival (Providence, RI), Detroit Improv Festival (Detroit, MI),  Boston Comedy Arts Festival (Boston, MA), Women In Comedy Festival (Boston, MA) and many more.

Dustin and Andrew were both born in upstate New York, where life is relaxed and Subways are full of sandwiches. Seven years ago they moved to NYC to find life is faster, and subways are full of homeless people. Like their life stories, their improv starts off slow and relaxed and builds to a fast paced mosaic of characters and relationships. Sometimes their worlds collide and sandwiches eat the homeless.
