Hip Hop + Beatboxing + Improv Comedy = North Coast

NORTH COAST - OH SHIT! (Live from the Magnet Theater 5/8/14), by North Coast
North Coast has held it down locally (The Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre, The People’s Improv Theater, UCB East, Gotham Comedy Club, The Tank, The Creek, Under St Marks) as well as a ton of various festivals all over the country (Atlanta, Los Angeles, New Orleans, Sarasota, Washington DC, Boston, North Carolina etc.)
In addition to the usual comedy crowds, North Coast has been invited to colleges, schools, and camps around the U.S. where they have performed, and led workshops teaching attendees how to freestyle rap, beatbox, and do improv scenework! They’ve also been hired by companies to create original music and promotional videos. They have worked with New York University, Fordham University, New York Institute of Technology, Driver Digital, and Camp Summer Stars, among others. (More information on hiring us and private gigs here.)
They have also been teaching a “Hip Hop Improv” workshop at the Magnet Theater since 2011.
Their show is upbeat and energetic from start to finish. You provide a suggestion and North Coast will make your gut bust and your head bop.
And if you don’t know, now you know.
