American Candy New York City’s most culturally skewering, juicy sketch show — returns to our stage with a naughty wild ride though history’s fascination with tapping, smashing, chopping and banging. Pull up a seat for this wicked, wrong-but-so-right brand of effery you will not soon forget. Featuring special guest comedian Dave Lester.

American Candy is created and executive produced by Hollie Harper and is also co-produced by Stephanie Bok, Megan O’Leary, Keith Sage-El and Mark Sashara. The sketch group has played at BRIC, The Comic Strip, Gotham Comedy Club and BAM Cafe and was listed by Time Out Chicago as one of the 5 sketch groups to watch at The 2019 Chicago Sketch Comedy Festival.
