“The best groups, like New York’s own MEAT… keep the action quick and the concepts sharp and simple.”
-THE ONION, 2005

"Some sketch comedy performers are fine actresses; some are terrific mimics; some can write directly to the gag as well as underneath it. MEAT is all over all of it."
-CHICAGO TRIBUNE, 2005

"The four clever women of MEAT...come up with esoteric concepts... and squeeze them hard."
-CHICAGO SUN- TIMES, 2005

-THE OREGONIAN, 2004

"Tasty & nutritious comedy"

-TODD HANSON, Head Writer: THE ONION

"If the world of first-class entertainment were a sandwich, MEAT would be the core."
-BRUCE CHERRY, AIR AMERICA RADIO

-A. WHITNEY BROWN, former writer: SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE

Our long list of achievements includes critic’s picks from The Village Voice, Time Out Chicago, The Onion, and award nominations by the Emerging Comics of NY for Best Sketch Group. MEAT has also enjoyed being the toast of Chicago, where we were hailed by the Chicago Sun-Times and named “Best Performers” by The Chicago Tribune for our sold-out performances at the Chicago Sketch Festival.
MEAT has been an official selection of The Best of the Best Sketch Festival, Seattle Sketch Festival, Vancouver Sketch Festival, San Francisco Sketch Festival, DC Comedy Festival and The New York Sketch Festival.
We are also honored to have shared billing with Lewis Black, Judy Gold, Jim Gaffigan, Demetri Martin and Gloria Steinam.
