Room 28, the revered sketch-comedy-collective, is keeping their tradition of bringing New York’s Off-Broadway theater circuit hilarity for the holidays with an all-new Sketchtacular, December 5th at the 47th Street Theater.
Room 28’s talented ensemble of Hispanic-American actors, writers, and improvisers emerged, as one of the Empire State’s most promising acts– outrageous, raw, and culturally diverse, selling out each of their ten shows since their 2014 theatrical debut. Their comedy connects with the millions of multicultural millennial and English-dominant Latinos craving culturally relevant content.
The group’s namesake, Room 28, is inspired by the popular Dominican saying “el Cuarto Veinte y Ocho”— the 28th room, a reference to the island’s notorious insane asylum positioned at the 28th milepost between the cities of Santiago and Santo Domingo.
Theatergoers can expect a vibrant holiday-themed show, ignited by Room 28’s signature blend of high energy and thoroughly produced sketches. The all-new material is just a tip off Room 28’s creative iceberg.
Room 28 was recently tapped by Lorne Michael’s production company, Broadway Video to partner with the creators of a new venture brought to the web by SNL alumni, Horatio Sanz and Fred Armisen, in January 2016. Nationally recognized brands, organizations and media outlets, including Latina, Univision’s The Flama and much more, have also tapped the troupe for original content.
Room 28 has mastered the art of crossing lines to keep audiences roaring with shock and delight on and off stage while leveraging their in-house skills across multimedia, visual arts, production, marketing, and promotion to produce their own events and viral parody sensations,
The charismatic Room 28 crew always serves up silly with a purpose, dedicating each effort to a relevant community cause, ranging from holiday gifting to children, domestic violence awareness, financial education, safe sex, and voter empowerment.
