Crime Alley: Dark Comedy for Dark Hearts

Doors Open @ 7:30, Show Starts @ 8:00pm

Crime Alley. Four dangerous, desperate people from varying degrees of terror in the comedy world. Who are they? What do they want? Why, why are they doing that on stage? Why do I not want them to stop? What is this madness they have awakened in me?

Crime Alley is:

William Hughes is a stand up comedian. He has been seen at places such as The Broadway Comedy Club, Improv Boston, and The Comedy Works, as well as The Stand Up 360 Comedy festival. He has written three fifths of all Crime Alley sketches that have been preformed so far. His mother is very proud of him.

Jon Tenace is a stand up comedian from Albany NY. Jon has been featured at many comedy clubs through out the northeast including the Funny Bone, Jokers Wild, and the Comedy Works, to name a few. Jon is also in a comedy music duo, Jon and Dylan who have also played in clubs and festivals around the country. Mr. Tenace is also a proud "used to be" Mormon and played second chair trumpet in his high school jazz band.

Bill Nettleton is the least talented person in the group, with very few credits to his name. Sure he performed stand up all over upstate New York for several years, but his true passion has always been high-impact, low-cost interpretive dance. Now he writes sketches with much funnier people and reaps their rewards.

Teasy Roosevelt is an Albany and NYC based comedian slash burlesque performer. As a comedian, she has been performing stand up, sketch, and improv for over ten years. Her performance roster has included such shows as Jungle! Jungle! (improv), Adam and Emily at the Movies (Performed in the Tallinn Improv Festival in Tallinn, Estonia), was the host of the weekly Magnet Mixer, and co-writer and performer in the yearly remake of The Paul Lynde Halloween Special. She was also the creator of and a performer in Focus: an improvised parody of The View, which has been an official selection of the Ladies are Funny Festival in Austin Texas, The Boston Improv Festival, and The Montreal Improv Festival. Teasy has trained with the Upright Citizens Brigade, The Second City, The Magnet Theater, and The Peoples Improv Theater. She has trained with such instructors as Armando Diaz (founder of the Magnet Theater, Upright Citizens Brigade), Amy Poehler (UCB, SNL, Parks and Rec), Peter Gwin (The Colbert Report), Michael Delaney (VEEP, UCB), and Christina Gausas (30 Rock, UCB). Workshops have included: T.J. & Dave, Matt Walsh (VEEP, UCB), Mike Myers, and Charna Halpern (Founder of IO Chicago).

Ms. Roosevelt has incorporated her love of presidential history and her extensive comedic experience into her burlesque persona. She can be found in various cities shaking her assets and twirling her tassels in a Nixon mask.
