Pretty Good Friends
An evening of innovative standup comedy and polished chaos that sometimes includes short films or music, and the occasional pig roast. The show started as a weekly event in 2006 and has evolved into larger-scale productions in Brooklyn and beyond. Pretty Good Friends has appeared at SF Sketchfest, Just For Laughs, and had it's own 10-night run at the Soho Theater in London, as well as it's own tour in the U.S.
TJ Miller was named one of Variety’s Top 10 Comics to Watch. He has appeared on The Late Show with David Letterman, Chelsea Lately, Last Call with Carson Daly, and Conan. Miller reps Denver, Colorado, and toured with Second City for almost two years. Miller’s film credits include She's Out of my League, Gulliver's Travels, Get Him to the Greek, Unstoppable, Yogi Bear, How to Train Your Dragon, Extract, and Cloverfield; he’s currently starring in HBO series Silicon Valley.
New York City-based comedian and actor Todd Barry is widely recognized for his roles as the bongo-playing “Third Conchord” on HBO’s Flight of the Conchords and Mickey Rourke’s deli boss in 2009 Oscar winner The Wrestler, and renowned throughout the entertainment industry for his nuanced, measured, and thoroughly original approach to stand-up. Drawing audience members in with his deadpan self-deprecation and ability to pile punchline upon punchline, his decidedly low-key stage persona belies a deeply intelligent, often biting, occasionally absurdist worldview, one lauded by discerning fans who seek a fresh yet honest update to traditional observation and social commentary. Todd was the subject of a recent New York Times Arts section cover story, which referred to him as a “master of standup” and noted “when it comes to live performance, few comics are more consistently funny.” In April 2013 the Todd Barry Podcast debuted. It reached #1 on the iTunes Comedy Podcast charts. Todd is also featured in season 3 of Jerry Seinfeld's web series Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee.
