PHIT Comedy is excited to welcome Adsit & Eveleth for a special one night only event!
Adsit & Eveleth is a duo made up of Scott Adsit (30 Rock, Veep, Big Hero 6) and Jet Eveleth (I Live Next Door To Horses, Animals, American Legacy). They have been described as “two improv stalwarts with a knack for the absurd. They aim for slower, character-driven work that pays close attention to detail. Expect lovable characters and more than a little weirdness.”
“Dazzling…compelling…outrageous and unexpected. Watching them slowly discover their characters was like biting into a Tootsie Roll Pop and discovering that awesome center. Everyone deserves to see improv this good.” -Timeout Chicago
