dick and duane

Dick and Duane

Dick and Duane (Richie Cohen and Duane Tragis) met as teenagers, fell in love and exchanged rings from a gumball machine. But finding a soulmate and a cheap apartment so early in life was not enough. They decided to follow in the footsteps of other married duos like Burns & Allen, Stiller & Meara and Sonny & Cher, becoming the first husband and husband comedy team. They’re part traditional burlesque comics, part old-school stand-up comedy team, part 1970s variety show and part vintage gay porn. They’re neither glamorous, fabulous, A-list, nor concerned with celebrity gossip. But what they do best is to skewer and deconstruct the art of comedy itself while shattering preconceived notions of married gay couples.

She is the host of Barbershop Stories, which features storytellers performing true tales in a salon in Brooklyn. Then she chops off their hair.

Frank Liotti’s criminal spree has taken him to Law and Order: Criminal Intent, Law and Order: Special Victims Unit, Jonny Zero, Canturbury’s Law and other televised murder scenes. A graduate of Yale School of Drama as well as SUNY Purchase, he landed in The New York Times for the production of “Cats Talk Back,” a mockumentary of life as a cast member of the Broadway hit “Cats.” As a stand-up comic, his sardonic wit, powerhouse characters and bizarre stream of consciousness are garnering growing buzz about the scene. He will appear in the film “BearCity 2,” a TLA Films release, this fall.

Corey Sky hails from Corvalis, Oregon, where he began playing guitar and singing in high school with the hope of impressing girls. He first took the stage as a Junior, attempting a cover of the Animals’ “House of the Rising Sun.” He was too nervous to play and stumbled through the song a cappella. Mortified by the experience, Corey gave up music forever. “Forever” ended  just before he arrived in Brooklyn, where he is a prolific songwriter and performer.
