Julie and Sayjal wrote and currently perform together in The Second City e.t.c.’s 41st review, Fantastic Super Great Nation Numero Uno in Chicago, IL after touring with The Second City National Touring Company and doing a billion other comedy shows all over the universe and at sea aboard The Norwegian Cruise Lines where they almost jumped overboard. They both graduated from The University of North Carolina at Greensboro and were both old timey ensemble members of The Idiot Box. They have over 200 years combined improv and sketch experience and both excel at playing weird old men, trolls, and small boys.
Julie Marchiano and Charles Pettitt have over 20 years of comedy experience between them, having studied and performed at The Idiot Box, iO Chicago, The Annoyance Theater, and The Second City, among others. They are also a real-life couple, and use that “normal” relationship to explore some not-so-normal ones.
We specialize in a unique long form that we developed called a 3-2-1. It focuses on storytelling and dynamic characters with creative stage pictures. We begin with an audience suggestion, then launch into personal and truthful monologues based on that suggestion, then further explore those stories through improvised scenes.
Trumane and Jared perform a monoscene under their Christian names. They’re just two happy dogs.
“Seth & Elizabeth are throwing the BEST PARTY EVER and You’re invited!!!”
Elizabeth and Seth are a duo long form improv group that come out with extremely high energy and ask an audience member to share a recent party experience with everyone. We then use that inspiration to create a mono party scene where we are the only two people to show up at a party. It’s wacky, it’s weird, and most importantly it’s a blast!
The Bunker Dogs are committed to bringing quality short form and long form improv to the Triad area. We are a semi-professional improv troupe with a passion for creating vibrant comedy as well as bringing a new performance art to the community of Winston Salem. Although we are an extension of “Comedy Potluck” of Winston-Salem, our name comes from the idea of the “bunker dog,” military dogs trained to fling themselves out of planes for search and rescue; falling into the unknown. We like to think of improv that way; jumping into the unknown to support our fellow players and our community too.
