Brick Penguin Presents:
Casual Sax with Strangers

OJJPicture this: You’re walking through the streets. It’s warm, but the breeze is just strong enough to make your long, luxurious feathered hair flutter gently. The city is alive with danger and excitement and cab drivers in a knife fight. You turn your head and see a mysterious stranger. Your eyes meet. This song plays (for some reason, don’t question it). You move closer until you can taste each other’s warm breath. It’s physical. It’s animal. There’s only one way this night’s gonna end and that’s with hot jazz all over the place. Our brand new sketch comedy show will be a lot like that. We’ve got all new sketches, as nasty as you like it. So come out to Hamilton’s Bar & Grill  (233 2nd St NW) on Saturday April 25 at 8pm and 10pm and enjoy some Casual Sax with Strangers. Get your tickets here.

This One’s for the Belt!

giphyTempers are flaring. Blows have been thrown. Integrity has been challenged. The stakes have never been higher.

The championship of–whatever, screw you. We’ve got a brand new show to bust, bash, and bloody our way into 2015. New sketches. No Mercy.

Brick Penguin Presents: The George Bailey Memorial Bridge

BP-Holiday-Logo.jpgHo, Ho, Ho, all you Brick Penguin Campers, have we got a show, show, show for you.

In this tastefully titled romp, we’ve got a brand new hour and some change of sketch comedy as part of our annual holiday show, and all the holidays are gonna be there, so why don’t you haul your ass out of Santa’s sack, slap some bells on yourself, and roast your nuts down to Hamilton’s.

The Halloween Show!

halloween-costumes-for-kids-33We’re back and just in time for our fourth annual Halloween Show. It’ll be Halloween just like you remember it from childhood, except the part where that one guy in a bathrobe said he “forgot it was Halloween” tried to give you powdered Entenmann’s donuts and pennies…  wonder what ever happened to that guy… seems like the kinda guy who would get killed by a prostitute…aaaaannnyway… We’re comin’ at you with a spooky, dark, and most likely haunted show filled with all new sketches.* So join us Friday, October 24 AND Saturday October 25, 8pm and 10pm at RFD in Chinatown. Get your tickets here! (First 20 people to buy tickets get them for $5!)

*There will be no ghosts at the show. Unless you believe in ghosts, then you are keenly aware that there will be a lot of ghosts there and they’re most likely angry and coming after you.


Capital Fringe Festival is Here!


The Capital Fringe Festival has arrived and we’re breaking into our own vault to bring you some of our best sketches from the last four years. It’ll make you laugh. It’ll make you shout. It’ll make her realize what a huge mistake she made leaving you for Keith just because he had “pretty eyes” and a “future” and she “wasn’t ashamed to introduce him to her parents.”…Anyway. We’ll be doing eight shows in July at the Fridge in Eastern Market. It’s gonna be a wild party and you’re all invited! Get your tickets now!



Disclaimer: For anyone not familiar with Brick Penguin, the shows venture into adult themes and language and are probably not suitable for children.


This production is presented as a part of the 2014 Capital Fringe Festival, a program of the Washington, DC non-profit Capital Fringe.

UPDATE: Brick Penguin at Dojo Comedy’s “A June Surprise” this Saturday!

Hi friends – due to some scheduling snafus – Brick Penguin will now be performing at Dojo Comedy’s: A June Surprise – this Saturday at The Fridge! Nothing like a splash of cold water to wake up your June, and this is that. No, we won’t have supersoakers that were stored in the freezer overnight, but we will have improv and sketch twice in a night at The Fridge. It’ll still be fun, maybe even shocking, but no poncho required. We think.

lucaCome check it out, Saturday, June 14, 8pm and 10pm at The Fridge. Buy tickets here!

We Peaked in Summer Camp

Buddy-systemDo you sometimes feel like life got away from you? Your job’s boring, your apartment’s overpriced, your ex got married in a sunset beach ceremony that was as devastating as it was tasteful. Despite all that, don’t you ever ever forget that for one glorious summer you were a god among thirteen year olds at summer camp. We know you were. Everybody was. Two to eight magical weeks in a wooded-enclave, most likely near a small body of water, where, in spite of yourself, you were more athletic, more confident, more seductive than you ever dreamed possible. You made friends with kids from other states. They called you “Viking” and offered you tribute of orange soda and Fun Dip from the canteen. You made it to second base, or at least that’s what you told your friends back at school. It’s time for you to feel that fleeting, hormonal joy again. We’ve got a brand new show bursting at the seams with brand new sketches. Come check it out, Saturday, May 17, 8pm and 10pm at The Fridge and maybe… just maybe… you’ll finally get to second base. Buy or reserve tickets here.

It’s New So It Must Be Sexy

SWAGGY-KidWe have exploded forth into the New Year with the same wild-eyed passion that has become expected of us… is what we would say if it was true. We are back, though, with a new show: all new sketches, all new ideas, all new potential for basic cable-appropriate nudity. Come hang out with us and watch us make funny on February 22, 8PM and 10PM at The Fridge in Eastern Market. All are welcome, except for Antonio Sabato Jr… he knows what he did. Buy or reserve tickets here.

The Holiday Show is Upon Us

if-you-think-those-christmas-cards-are-weirdCome sit on our laps… no not for that… you sicko… sit on our laps and tell us what you want for Christmas. Is it a new bike? A Red Rider BB gun? Your parents to get back together? Well, let me tell you something: none of that is happenin’ so you might as well start drinkin’ now, champ. Don’t fret though, Brick Penguin is here to cure the holiday blues. We’ve got a brand new show filled with brand new holiday sketches about all the dysfunction that comes with the last two months of the year. Join us on December 14th at The Fridge and we’ll get through this thing together. Get your tickets here.
