Once called a cross between The Office, The Capitol Steps, and Modern Family, The Water Coolers is a singing comedy act that uses top NY talent to answer the question “does this stuff happen to anyone else?”
The Water Coolers made our New York club debut in 2000 and followed that two years later with a smash engagement Off-Broadway in 2002, produced by one of the producers of HAIRSPRAY, SPAMALOT, and THE PRODUCERS. The Water Coolers recently received our second Spotlight Award for Entertainment of the Year, making us one of only 3 acts to be awarded this honor twice. In addition to a packed special events schedule, we continue to tour our constantly updated act at performing arts centers around the U.S. and the world. We recently made our Asian debut at Singapore’s prestigous Drama Centre.
For nearly 15 years, THE WATER COOLERS have entertained audiences around the world, as far reaching as Singapore and Australia, with their high energy, uncommonly funny, authentic take on work and life. Smart phones, conference calls, kids, coworkers, and travel are just a few of the topics this group of top NYC talent turns into hilarious sketch comedy and song.
In addition to their long-standing place as a top comedy act in the events world, they’ve recently added a keynote presentation to their offerings. Using their unique mix of music and comedy combined with real-world practical tips, their laugh-out-loud keynote, “Getting to Great Performance” has been described as engaging, motivational, amazing, relevant, on point, unforgettable, and brilliant by audience members.
THE WATER COOLERS writing team is a mix of professional comedy writers and people working in the "real world" and headed up by one of the creators of New York's longest running comedy hit ever, TONY 'N TINA'S WEDDING.
The performing cast is made up of New York professionals with resumes including top comedy clubs like Igby's, the Improv, the Comic Strip, and the Icehouse as well as Broadway productions of such shows as “Wicked,” “Rock of Ages,” “Legally Blonde”, “The Adams Family” “Chicago” “Hair”, “Pippin”, “In The Heights ,” “Les Miserables,” “Mamma Mia,” and many more.
THE WATER COOLERS were a hit! They received a standing ovation! Their performance was awesome and EVERYONE loved them. In fact, all the members could say was that this was the “BEST” Achievement Awards ceremony they had ever attended.
The comments we heard after the show were “what are you going to do to top that ending”; “I felt like I was at a Broadway show”; “I haven’t laughed that hard in ages…” THE WATER COOLERS were the hit of our weeklong meeting!
Everyone loved it! Especially our custom song! I wanted to jump up like at a concert and clap for an encore…To sum it up,
your cast was a blast! Thanks so much.
