Mark Bringhurst and Dan Stabb are the cubicle-bound neighbors of CUBED, workplace-comedy improv that relies heavily on audience suggestions and participation throughout the show. CUBED’s highly interactive performance allows the audience to write memos, provide their company’s name/service, and even become part of the show themselves. Since CUBED’s debut in 2008, they have performed to rave reviews in theatres, coffeehouses, and festivals throughout the East Coast. Mark and Dan also teach improvisational classes and workshops, with a strong focus on both character and agreement. In addition to their performances as CUBED, the duo also performs “Whose Line”-style shortform improv.

Tickets for this performance are still available!
