    The Last Days of The Dowry…

    As some of you know, with Laura and Paul moving to Los Angeles in the Fall, the Dowry will be going on indefinite hiatus after (500) Days ‘Til Summer. It’s likely we’ll have a blowout bash/farewell show sometime this summer, but the last two performances of (500) Days are the final official Dowry shows.

    You don’t want to miss out, so please do yourself (and us) and buy your tickets in advance.

    See you there!

    The Dowry featured in HuffPost Comedy! →

    Thanks to Liz McKeon for her great review of the Dowry in HuffPost this week.

    The Dowry took the stage next with selections from the sketch show they’ve been performing on Fridays for a two-month run that began March 2, “500 Days ‘Til Summer.” The group has been one of the more cohesive sketch troupes in the area for the past few years, and their writing has always been very strong. They know each other’s styles and play well together. I assumed their show would include references to The Hunger Games and it was a given that I wouldn’t understand most of those. I didn’t expect them to come out for their first sketch dressed as a turtle and a ninja turtle. Why going back to the ’80s and ’90s makes pop cultural references more accessible than current ones is something I’m not sure I’m ready to delve into, but the entire audience got it immediately. One of the brilliant things about The Dowry is that their references — and yes, they did cover Hunger Games — involve more than standard one-note pandering to a franchise-obsessed audience. I haven’t read or seen any of the Twilight books or seen any of the movies, but they compared the two big franchises in such a way that it was funny without knowing the source material. What The Dowry excels at is poking fun at the popular intake of pop culture. This is much harder to do than it sounds, and they do it well.

    dowrycomedy's new show improvboston had me APOPLECTIC. I don’t know how they keep being this brilliant. HAPPY!” -  Kevidently

    "Wow. dowrycomedy nailed it tonight.” - SteveDelfino

    "Put it this way, if you DON’T go see The Dowry, you are denying yourself an opportunity to see the best talent at IB put on one of the best shows in Boston. I’ve had the great pleasure of working with them since 2009 and they only get smarter, funnier, better with every new show. Their last series in April was one of the best sketch shows I’ve ever seen" - Brendan Mulhern
