OFF BOOK PODCAST
_ Main Venue _
Off Book bring their unique live podcast performance to Whelan’s on Monday 16th September
Every week Jessica McKenna and Zach Reino sit down and record a completely improvised musical
in an attempt to combat the notion that musicals should be “carefully crafted” or “thought out at all.” This time they are doing it live! Accompanied by the incomparable Scott Passarella on the keys and produced by Earwolf.
Zach Reino and Jessica McKenna are better known as the musical sketch duo The Zach and The Jess. They’ve written musical sketches for Party Over Here, Buzzfeed, FunnyOrDie, Nickelodeon, and they created and starred in “Serious Music,” a digital series for ABC. Their weekly improvised musical podcast called, “Off Book” on Earwolf has been praised by various online publications including Indie Wire, USA Today, Parade, AV Club and Splitsider. The podcast has also performed live at the renowned Just For Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal, Seattle’s Bumbershoot Festival and Comedy Central’s Clusterfest Festival in San Francisco. Between their podcast and UCB performances Jess and Zach sometimes improvise four musicals a week. It’s almost like it’s no big deal to write a musical. Boom! Rodgers and Hammerstein ya been roasted!
