Toby Knops, Peter Michael Marino and The Peoples Improv Theater, are pleased to announce the return of SOLOCOM NYC!

SOLOCOM is a celebration of the many hilarious performers who have decided to let themselves and themselves alone speak for their work. This weekend-long showcase of original work will feature solo sketch artists, storytellers, stand ups and everything in between. Best of all, this funny material will be premiering for the very first time.  Every show will be brand new! Brand new!? Yes! We’re going to make SOLOCOM 2014 the biggest celebration of new comedic solo work that NYC has to offer.

Join the fun all day and night on November 15th & 16th at The PIT. 123 East 24th St. Between Park and Lexington Avenues.  Super close to the subways, the buses and every cabbie knows how to get here.
