Happy Hour presents
And it Feels so Good!
New York's premiere physical comedy trio Happy Hour is together again with an all-new show! Mark Gindick (Big Apple Circus), Ambrose Martos (Cirque du Soleil) and Matthew Morgan (Ringling Bros.) transcend formulaic circus comedy to create an evening of theater that is remarkably genuine, occasionally absurd, definitely sweaty and wildly funny. The New York Post calls the comedy trio Happy Hour "irresistible high-energy entertainment" and the New York Times says they are "hilarious." The Village Voice adds: "The talented trio let fun flow freely. It's easy to see how Happy Hour could become a habit."

As the Vaudeville era closes, the illustrious LeRoy Sister-Act unravels at the seams.
