It’s a comedy like you’ve never seen — a delightfully silly thriller about love, alien abduction, and the spirit of adventure! Accompanied onstage by guitarist Kevin Hume, this holiday season The Pajama Men bring their trademark style of blink-of-an-eye character switches and plot twists to DC.

Originally from Albuquerque, New Mexico, The Pajama Men have become stars of the international comedy circuit. They smashed all previous box office records at London’s Soho Theatre in 2010, earned the title “Double Act of the Year” by The London Times, and have produced the highest rated show at the Edinburgh Fringe, the world’s largest arts festival.

“I am still recovering from my exposure to their antics, which oscillate at something on the order of 1,000 jokes per minute…I was doubled over in a kind of hysterical agony. I felt as if my lungs had migrated into my throat and that my anatomy would soon be inside out.”
– Peter Marks, Washington Post

What the critics are saying…

“The completely bonkers fusion of comedy skits, music, and mime is loosely based around an overarching story about space travel, but you don’t need to give it too much attention. The joy instead is in watching Chavez and Allen flit from scene to scene at a breakneck pace, and observing their obvious enjoyment in doing so.” 

“Chaotic in the best way possible, leaving us scarce time to breathe in between the dizzyingly complex improvisation.” 

Brightest Young Things

“You’ll laugh throughout the beginning, the middle, the end, and even afterward, when you’re in your own pajamas and their ludicrousness flashes back to mind.” 
 The Examiner

“All the time you’re watching them…, trying to catch your breath between genius comic turns, you are also thinking: These guys have the goods to become very big comedy forces on TV and film. And you’ll be someday able to brag that you saw them in this very intimate surrounding.” 
Maryland Theatre Guide

“This is a show that had the audience in stitches the whole way through.”
