Brooklyn Daily Eagle

New York City’s fastest rising sketch group starts its 5th season with a topic we can all relate to: the autumn ritual of going back to school.
Visit Google Charter School, Celebrity Parent-Teacher Conferences, Sexy Schoolgirls, the Summer of 97' and the Solid Gold Dancers in AMERICAN CANDY: Back to School!!! Audiences will be laughing in recognition of the things they remember from their school, or wish they’d seen back in the day.
AMERICAN CANDY has built a successful series by removing the stereotype that all comedy is the provenance of young white men. With a multi-cultural cast and team of female and male writers, the material has a wide appeal. AMERICAN CANDY has been offering sketch comedy to extremely receptive audiences in Manhattan and Brooklyn since June of 2009. Past themes have included Politics As Usual, The History of Sex, The Super 70s and The Wild, Wild West.  AMERICAN CANDY has an energetic troupe of talented actors and a strong base of writers and directors and is fast becoming a comedy institution in New York City.
Performances are at the beautiful state of the art Actors Fund Arts Center, the new home for the best sketch comedy in NYC. The theatre is located at 160 Schermerhorn Street in Downtown Brooklyn.
With a $20 ticket price that includes a pre-show complimentary wine reception, AMERICAN CANDY is the best entertainment value in New York City! For more info, visit!slideshow/cp0k.
