Magnet Sketch Teams - Magnet Theater
April 15, 2019 - New York

Our homegrown writers and performers bring you brand-new sketch comedy every Monday night in two half-hour blocks of hilarity. Equal parts smart and silly, dark and irreverent, this is the freshest content to come out of our writers room each month. Our ensembles have been official selections of some of the biggest sketch festivals around the country, but you can catch them right here on our stage every single week.

Everyone Is Sad: A Stand-Up Show - Magnet Theater
April 18, 2019 - New York

"Everyone Is Sad" is a stand-up show for comedic performers who are relatively new to stand-up. These performers may appear happy doing improv, sketch, and musical improv--but they are all very tormented and sad and want to stand alone on stage. The host, Perri Gross, has been sad for over 6 years doing stand-up and improv in various stages and basements in NYC. She is a writer for Reductress, The Higgs Weldon, and is also a performer at the Magnet Theater. She has cried on every street corner in Manhattan.

Character Bash: The Gift of Love - Magnet Theater
April 20, 2019 - New York

Character Bash is a monthly showcase at the Magnet Theater hosted by Elena Skopetos and Kyle Gordon. They gather New York's most talented writers and actors to perform absurd and hilarious character monologues for the first time live.
