Media & Reviews
If you miss that old “What the hell is happening?” chaotic energy from back in the day, it’s unfolding in a barely marked basement under the Williamsburg Bridge. The Annoyance is the new(ish) sister club of its long-running namesake in Chicago. Holy Fuck is its signature show, a curated hour of eclectic, bizzarro material written in a week with no rehearsals. If this is your thing, it’s going to be… like… your *thing.* We hope that makes sense.
Comedy’s next generation is already beginning to emerge…’Loud-lings’ is how I like to describe the Holy Fuck Comedy Hour, which mixes Chicago-style brashness with the character focus of L.A.’s Groundlings. Perhaps to drown out the jazz coming from upstairs, everything is turned up to 11
The funniest show I saw was the free 10:30 p.m. Thursday performance that featured a lively parade of character pieces, mostly loosely crafted monologues that leaned heavily on improvisation.
Time Out NY says:
The insane sketch and improv show, The Holy Fuck Comedy Hour is experimental comedy at its best.
Barely a year old, the New York branch of the Annoyance Theatre is still making its name in New York’s UCB-dominated sketch and improv scene. But, for my money (which in this case is $0, as the show is free), Holy Fuck is the most exciting sketch show in the city. The show was brought over from the original Annoyance in Chicago and offers the theater’s style of maximalist sketch comedy. Loud and character-focused, Holy Fuck will make you laugh until you scream, or at least scream until you laugh.
