Who’s up for 24 hours of improv comedy? Tomahawk & friends are!

As someone who has experienced 50 hours of continuous stand-up comedy as a patron saint of comedy blogging, I can tell you that it is a dizzying thing (see my Comic Strip Live Marathon coverage for background). There were some unexpected moments there, to be sure. The UCB's Del Close Marathon provides one weekend of madness, some of it unexpected, each August in NYC. Now to those, add this comedic feat.

Tomahawk24 Tomahawk, a house improv team at The PIT in NYC, plans a 24-hour marathon of improv comedy this coming Nov. 6-7, 2009, at the Sage Theater in Midtown Manhattan. It's scheduled during the New York Comedy Festival, though I'm not sure if it's officially a part of it. Either way, it should be fun, as the team will be joined onstage by other local groups throughout the event. Here's their tentative schedule:

FRIDAY, NOV. 6 8 pm: Tomahawk
8:30 pm: Audience of Two
9:30 pm: Junior Varsity
10:30 pm: Starkey and Grace
11:30 pm: Action Pals
SATURDAY, NOV. 7 12:30-2 am: The Wilhelm
4-10 am: Tomahawk
10 am: DriveThru Baby
11 am: Old Enough
12 pm: Long Division
1 pm: The Pill
2 pm: Knifestorm
3 pm: The MakeOuts
4 pm: Handsometown
5 pm: Phil and I
6 pm: Centralia
7 pm: Audience of Two
7:30-8: Tomahawk

And here's a promo video. Looks like a fun thing to drop in on (though I shan't be sitting in for the whole thing this time around)!
