Bad Habits

Directed by Anthony Oberbeck

Sunday @ 7:00 | Annoyance Theatre NY


About the Show

SPECIAL TIME 3/26 7:00pm!

Each week, the cities most degenerate, despicable, and deplorable improvisers are split up into two groups and challenged to give up OR indulge in their BAD HABITS for the sake of comedy.

From Creator Sam Taffle:

When BAD HABITS began, no one thought it would last more than a month. Not only that, the word around the block was negative. The Post printed YUGE headline on the cover that read: ” ‘BAD HABITS’ IS A BAD FOR YOU” and Paul Krugman wrote an op-ed in the Times that was about the financial burden this show would be for many middle class patrons.

LIES — they lied and lied and lied. But we showed them. Not only did we show them, but BAD HABITS became THE show to see every Sunday night for over four months. It was a triumph, a miracle, a spectacle of the stage.

Who could forget the very first show, when the cast gave up cigarettes and coffee? Or the no masturbation episode: now that was a classic! This show has touched the lives of hundreds of people…and maybe, it’s even changed a few too.

This Sunday is the Series Finale. While the future is unclear for BAD HABITS – can you ever get rid of a BAD HABIT? Will this show go on after the Annoyance? What is clear is that you must attend this final performance. Bring your friends, your family, your children. This is going to be an event on par with the Bealtes performing on Ed Sullvan. Or at least the last episode of “Fraiser.”
