The Sour Boys are a 3-man (unless we decide it isn’t) performance group that has a very flexible style. We all believe that theatre is defined by the audience, the space and the performers. Anything else is relatively arbitrary. We all are active improv ensemble members at the Comedy Clubhouse, and we have a more traditional theatre background through our college education.
As a group we are heavily influenced by the Neo-Futurists and their more literal take on theatre. If the lights are off at a show it doesn’t mean the show is over, it just means that the room is now dark. Which goes against a staple of traditional theatre. We believe the audience is in the same room as the performer.
We want to push the limits of what we see currently in comedy.
