The Cousin Brothers
In 2002, I teamed up with Mike B. and Joe M. to form a comedy troupe named The Cousin Brothers. While never really achieving success of any kind (and only being paid once for a gig), we were a notorious group that performed edgy sketch-style comedy at traditional stand-up clubs (despite there being a huge movement of “alternative comedy” rooms throughout NYC).
We frequently performed at the New York Comedy Club, with sporadic appearances at Gotham, Apollo Comedy Club, Caroline’s, and various road-side bars in New Jersey.
Over time, our focus shifted from performing live comedy to producing content made for the internet. This content (whatever is preserved) will be posted individually.
We officially parted ways in 2006.
