Pasic and Platt: Orgy
Pasic and Platt: Orgy
Mo Fry Pasic and Tim Platt are UCB trained stand up comedians, actors, and writers who create comedy theater events in New York City. Utilizing improv to push sketch comedy toward realism, Pasic and Platt perform slow, grounded scenes that illuminate universal human insecurities, vulnerabilities, and desires. ORGY follows a modern couple trying to organize an orgy for, undeniably, the wrong reasons. Pasic and Platt’s characters confront their issues with the help of their friends and love interests played by Carmen Christopher (MTV), Aaron Jackson (UCB), and Betsy Kenney (The Place We Live) with stand up from the hilarious Anna Drezen (How May We Hate You)
