World-renowned sketch superstars return to Vancouver! Known for their unique style that blends stand-up, sketch, improv, and outlandish characters in strange situations, the Pajama Men are like nothing else. The American duo takes audiences everywhere and anywhere with delightfully divergent stories. Described as the ‘Improvisers’ improvisers. Actors’ actors. Comedians’ comedians’ (Chicago Tribune), these one-of-a-kind performance legends have well and truly marked their territory as the kings of the surreal and the spontaneous. They’ve won awards worldwide for their antics, and whether you’re a diehard fan or seeing them for the first time the Pajama Men’s Pterodactyl Nights will get you where you need gettin’.
‘The Pajama Men create a cartoon of the mind – a shape-shifting world in which anything seems not just possible, but imminent. ★★★★★’ The Guardian
