UNITARD is a wildly twisted, brilliantly outspoken, hilarious, fabulous, tested, ready now, comedy group from NYC.  They have performed from coast to coast and points in between as well as Canada. Collectively and individually they have performed in venues and festivals across the US including: We’re Funny That Way: Toronto, Aspen Comedy festival, Toyota Comedy festival, Joe’s Pub: NYC, HBO Workspace: LA, PS122: NYC, Highways: LA, SF Sketchfest: San Francisco, Andy Warhol Museum: Pittsburgh, Theater Offensive: Boston, Oberon: Harvard Square Cambridge, The Maui Cultural Center, as well as Portland OR, Seattle WA, Provincetown MA and Columbus OH. Some of their work has been featured on, CNN, NPR, Bravo, VHI, Logo TV, and Comedy Central.

Made up of the combined talents of Mike Albo (former NYTimes columnist and author of The Underminer as well as established solo performer), Nora Burns(of the comedy group The Nellie Olesons, featured in film and TV) and David Ilku (Featured in film and TV, and member of the Dueling Bankheads),  Unitard is a series of comic sketches and monologues skewering social, political and sexual mores.

We start the show with a group piece, Please come to my…(one-person show, country home, website etc) that is very presentational and then we alternate between solo monologues and group pieces. The show is smart, specific and fun with a gay sensibility though some of our most ardent fans are straight. 

The show runs an hour more or less. We have done scores of completely different shows during our time together. It’s an evening of smart, cutting-edge, hilarious monologues and sketches, Past examples are Mike Albo doing the Underminer character from his book of the same title, David Ilku as the Mad Flautist, a bad Renaissance Faire performer, and Nora Burn’s as Junkie Jones, the strung out talk show host. 

Making mockery of the mundane and fools of the fabulous, the Unitards will have you spitting up your cocktail as they skewer everything from The Real Housewives of Düsseldorf and Artisanal Cheese to Gratuitous Gay Dads and Bad Baby Sitters.
