Couples Therapy
Hosted by Andy Beckerman and Naomi Ekperigin

Couples Therapy is a stand-up show where lovers, ex-lovers, spouses, siblings, friends and even parents and children perform sets together about their relationship. It’s the fun of a comedy show mixed with the intimacy of a private therapy sesh and a one-of-a-kind performance that you won’t get to see at any other comedy show. And it's hosted by a real-life couple!
