New York based sketch comedy trio Postmen — comprised of Carmen Christopher (Comedy Central Comics to Watch), Matt Barats (Just For Laughs New Faces, High Maintenance
) and Anthony Oberbeck (IFC's Comedy Cribs
) — is headed to Charleston for a one-hour, in your face show.
The members first met in Chicago where they helped start the critically acclaimed "Kill All Comedy" collective
. In 2014, they moved to Brooklyn and continued to share their creative energy with the world, this time establishing the New York branch of the Annoyance Theatre including the two year running weekly show "The Holy F@ck Comedy Hour." The New York Times
describes Holy F@ck as "a barreling, visceral performance style that crowds the small stage with violence, activity, and sound."
While the Annoyance has since closed, the trio continue to perform at Union Hall, UCB, Good Good Comedy in Philadelphia, and "anywhere with a stage in Brooklyn." Individually, they've developed pilots and web videos for Comedy Central, IFC,
and Super Deluxe, contributed writing to The Onion, and appeared in shows such as High Maintenance
, The Chris Gethard Show,
and Late Night with Seth Meyers.
Check out the funny guys Sat. Nov. 4 at Theatre 99 starting at 10 p.m. Tickets are only $10, so go ahead and use that lunch money for a Big Apple kinda night on the town.
