From Justin to Kelly w/ Silkworm
Flyover Comedy Festival presents from Justin to Kelly Comedy w/ Silkworm (Pat Niday & Katie Northrup).
Kelly Buttermore and Justin Peters are two of America’s top independent improvisers. As the duo From Justin to Kelly, they spend most of their time on tour, performing and teaching at theaters and festivals around the country; since 2014, they have performed and taught over 250 shows and workshops in 25 different states, the District of Columbia, Canada, and international waters. Their signature form is the Walter, a minimalistic monoscene that emphasizes silence, eye contact, and total commitment to the moment. Off stage, they promote a DIY ethos that encourages improvisers to find their own voices and own their own work. They are based in New York City, where they are the founders of Countdown Theater, a roaming pop-up improv collaborative. They are also the producers of the Countdown Improv Festival, the only national improv festival dedicated exclusively to trio, duo and solo improv. They spend a lot of time in the car, talking about the radio.
Silkworm is Katie Northrop and Pat Niday, two improvisers from iO Chicago who happen to be in a loving relationship off-stage. A little sweet, a little disturbing, and ALWAYS with a fresh new handshake to start each show.
