The Entertainment

The Entertainment is a narrative based variety show hosted by Emily Axford and Travis Helwig starring real and fake NYC comedy groups. Combining elements from LOST, the Tonight Show and experimental theater, it is unlike any comedy showcase you have ever seen. Who are our hosts? Why are they forced to host a talk show? What happens if they escape? Can they escape? The Entertainment tells an engaging and terrifyingly funny narrative both written and inspired by each night’s performances. Written by Emily Axford (Ragnarock, Beast), Travis Helwig (Mike Duffy, North Coast) and Mohammad Yousuf (Sam French Off Off Broadway Festival, Theater Masters SoHo Rep).
