What we have here, folks, is a complete Political Satire Musical Revue, with song & dance and sketch comedy ("skits"). Our shows are an hour long, and can be tailored to be anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours long, depending on client's requests. Our casts are designed to hilariously impersonate and roast the likes of The Obamas, GW Bush, Hilary Clinton, Sarah Palin, etc., and spoof current events ranging from Obamacare to Women's Rights to Gun Control Rights, Immigration Laws to Medicinal Marijuana Laws to Gay Marriage Laws, and scandals from Anthony Weiner to Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky, and everything in between! All of this is done magically through song and dance and using America's popular songs!
With a 6 person cast consisting of NYC's most talented singers and dancers, and with exciting Broadway choreography & staging, and orchestrated tracks made just for us, National Nonsense brings you a high quality evening of entertainment.
We came into existence after being hired to sing on a popular late night talk show as a fictitious Political Satire group called "The Beltway Bunch". Since then, we have branched out from our home state of New York, and now have casts in Los Angeles and Dallas!
We arrive at our gigs with colorful costumes, props and wigs, as well as a production manager. Upon request, we can usually supply our own sound equipment and risers/sets & lighting, however, due to travel limitations in the NYC area (not all of our talented cast members have cars), it is preferred that our clients can provide us with these things. (Sound equipment, microphones, set/risers, lighting.)
We always arrive at least an hour early to set up and have a sound check in the performance space, and we request a holding/changing area, and if possible some water for the vocal chords!
National Nonsense is the perfect evening of entertainment for all types of audiences. Our music and comedy is clean & fun, without being vulgar or offensive, and politically we are more like Switzerland than anything else: never really taking a side! We equally spoof and roast the different sides of the United States' multi-faceted political climates.
We are a big hit with country clubs and corporate events/private parties, fundraisers, galas, etc. But we know that the sky's the limit when it comes to our mass appeal.
We always have so much fun at our gigs and with our guests, and we hope to hear from you soon for your special event!
