The Water Coolers
The Water Coolers began as the brain child of Tom Allen, a successful commercial actor and co-creator of the long running hit “Tony and Tina’s Wedding” and his wife Sally, a top management and public policy consultant. It had it’s New York premier in 2001, and quickly became a hit in the meetings and events industry. In 2002 it was seen at an event by Broadway producer Richard Frankel (Stomp, The Producers, Hairspray) who mounted a critically acclaimed Off Broadway run. Subsequent productions were launched across the US, and today the act performs regularly at meetings and events and in theaters all around the world. Last year The Water Coolers performed on three continents and made their Asia premiere!
We live in New York City and when we’re not working (an admittedly rare occurrence), we’re out enjoying every inch of this city we love, arguing over whether Tony or Frank was the better singer, cheering on the Yankees, and scouring the Union Square Farmer’s Market for the perfect summer heirloom tomato.
The Water Coolers's Programs
Award-winning songs and sketch comedy about the challenges we all face at work, direct from NYC — think annoying co-workers, the panic of an accidentally sent email, never-ending meetings, and an unnatural attachment to your smartphone — whether it’s after dinner entertainment, pop-up performances throughout the day, or a big kick off, audiences relate to what’s happening on stage and each other.
Think of a cross between the Office and the funniest YouTube parody you’ve ever seen, performed live by top NYC talent and you’ll be getting the idea.
