Following the smashingly successful run of BARAM & SNIECKUS: “YOU AND ME BOTH”, Matt Baram (Suicide Squad and The Second City’s Guide To The Symphony) and Naomi Snieckus (Mr. D) are bringin’ it again in the highly anticipated BARAM & SNIECKUS “STILL FIGURING IT OUT”. This not to be missed follow-up revue previews on September 27th and runs to September 30th, 2016 at the John Candy Box at The Second City Training Centre, 99 Blue Jays Way, 3rd Floor, Toronto. Produced by The National Theatre of the World.
This award-winning and still married comedy duo has created an all-new hybrid theatre piece – a little sketch, a little improv – and constant bickering! Matt and Naomi come together as sketch comedy partners and Second City Toronto alumni, who satirize the male/female dynamic in all of its complicated splendour. BARAM & SNIECKUS “STILL FIGURING IT OUT” showcases the unique point of view and chemistry that comes from being a real life comedy couple.
From the passive aggressive act of scolding your partner through your dog to the delightful dance of forgetting the name of the man you’ve met at least a thousand times, the story of men and women will be told through a satirical sketch comedy lens, informed by Matt and Naomi’s personal experiences as a real life comedy couple, fully heightened and explored in a unique and hilarious way. Their sharp wit and anarchic chemistry are not to be missed!!!
A power couple of Canadian comedy, Second City alums Naomi Snieckus (CBC, MrD) and Matt Baram (Nickelodeon Make It Pop) are the creators of The National Theatre of the World, a six-time Canadian Comedy Award (CCA) winning comedy troupe that tours to North American and international audiences.
