A new direction. Matt Craig and Frank Caeti have been performing together for five years, sweating buckets on stages from here to California. Their latest show, American Imperil, mines the current political climate for material, an edgy departure from their last Piccolo show, Pilgrimage, which had the two pals on a road trip, letting them play off each other.
And we mean sweating buckets. Just the way these guys physically inhabit the stage is funny. Craig is very tall and very sweaty. Caeti is small and chubby, sweats profusely, and has eyes that sometimes bug out of his head.
It's a MADtv world. If you think you know these guys, you might just recognize them from TV. Caeti was a cast member of MADtv, where he created memorable characters like Baby Joey and the praying car salesman. And Craig's appeared on The Office and According to Jim.
