Sketch comedy duo Charles will take you down a wormhole of interwoven worlds. Some of them smart. All of them stupid.
With an eclectic and imaginative series of sketches in the tradition of Kids in the Hall and Monty Python, Charles Presents: A Trip Through the Multiverse is a genre-bending chimera of comedy goodness. It’s a police procedural within an historical epic; it’s a murder mystery with inverted light cues; it’s a ghost story told by a frustrated ghost. The show is intelligent without sacrificing accessibility, and its unique interwoven style hardly ever stops to breathe and never ceases to surprise.
Chuck and Charlie, the two fellows who compose Charles, have been writing and performing comedy for years. Outside the group, Chuck has worked as a contributing writer for for The Onion, and Charlie served as editor-in-chief of Stanford University’s humor magazine The Chaparral and has contributed pieces to McSweeney’s.
