Heads up to our friends and associates who live in the Ketchum/Sun Valley area. You don’t have to be a Dent conference attendee (or live in Manhattan!) to catch one of the “Top Ten Best Comedy Shows” according to Time Out New York. North Coast Hip Hop Improv Comedy is a New York-based comedy improvisation troupe we are bringing to town for their second Dent performance, and we’ve helped organize a public show open to all.
Boasting an impressive cast of New York veteran comedians. In its riveting performances, the troupe starts off with an audience member’s suggestion, and proceeds to improvise scenes on the spot, turning their events into complete, thrilling hip hop songs, which are accompanied by the sounds of the troupe’s expert resident beat-boxer. With a cast of improv comedy veterans from The Upright Citizens Brigade, the Peoples Improv Theater and The Magnet theaters in New York City, North Coast’s explosive performances have been packing comedy venues, universities, and festivals nationwide since 2009.
Time Out New York, characterized their show as a “hip-hop obsessed troupe” that “shows off both its comedy and freestyle skills in a show that feels more like a party.” In addition to Time Out New York, North Coast has been featured on Vh1; in Slate’s Podcast The Gist; The Village Voice, and The New York Times Comedy Listings.
With their seamless melding of comedic timing and freestyle rapping abilities, North Coast frequently blurs the line between comedy show and concert, drawing audiences from the comedy, hip-hop, and theater communities for an experience that has been hailed as “mind-blowing” and “next level” by critics and audiences alike.
