Everyone Is Talking About Viral Sensation We Are Thomasse!
“The married comedy duo of Nick Afka Thomas and Sarah Ann Masse combine his droll British wit and her joke-packed American energy in this clever, cross-cultural sketch show.” —ELISE CZAJKOWSKI, THE NEW YORK TIMES
Meet Nick Afka Thomas and Sarah Ann Masse, the hilarious British-American comedy duo known as We Are Thomasse (rhymes with “sassy”). Featured by the New York Times, The New York Post, The Guardian, Funny or Die, The Daily Dot, and ELLE India, and playing to full houses in Los Angeles, New York, London and Paris, We Are Thomasse is indeed everywhere. They have over 6 million views on Facebook, Funny Or Die, and YouTube, and a Facebook reach of over 6 million. Often likened to Elaine May and Mike Nichols, We Are Thomasse is the fast-paced, old-school comedy power-couple taking the LA and NYC comedy scenes by storm.
We Are Thomasse’s British-American humo(u)r is clean but twisted, relying on high concepts, charmingly absurd characters, and clever verbiage. They keep it “Family Friendly”… even in that sketch about sluts. And the one about polite sex. And the one about saying “Yes!” to drugs. During We Are Thomasse’s live shows, Nick and Sarah shoot high-concept joke after high-concept joke at an audience that can hardly keep up, they’re so busy laughing!
“I’m not very keen on sketch comedy at the best of times… and not one (of We Are Thomasse’s) went wrong… every single one was spot-on… every one was superb. That’s probably about as much in one show as there was at the whole of the (Edinburgh) Fringe last year!” —JOHN FLEMING and KATE COPSTICK, THE GROUCHY PODCAST
With 30 sketches in 60 minutes, We Are Thomasse has performed their quick-witted, fast-paced show at notable venues including UCB (LA and NYC), the PIT, Broadway Comedy Club, iO West, Java Joe’s, Second City Hollywood, and venues all over Europe, such as the Museum of Comedy and the Leicester Square Theatre.
This year, We Are Thomasse went viral with their endearing web series Feminist Fairytales, with Comedy Cake saying: “If you’re not a We Are Thomasse’s FEMINIST FAIRYTALES superfan yet, it’s time to pledge your allegiance now! The web series which has over 1 million views on Funny or Die gives its audience commentary on classic fairytales through a powerful, eye-opening, feminist lens that rumbles your laugh centers.” They followed that up with runaway success Awkward Exes: Britain & America. This sharp July 4th/Brexit satire reached 2 million views in 72 hours, with SHORTLIST raving: “If you’re going to reduce eight years of revolutionary war and the brutal colonisation of most of the world into a hilarious four minutes, this is the way to do it.” They’ve just been named #12 in a list of the top 1000 comedians of 2016, and have have become frequent collaborators in both live and digital sketches with double Grammy-winner Jason Mraz.
