WHAT HAVE YOU BEEN DOING DURING THE LOCKDOWN?
We've been doing a lot more than just hoarding endless amounts of toilet paper and binge-watching YouTube videos about aliens that created the virus and are now preparing to take over the planet. We rolled up our sleeves, put our heads together (well, the best we could over zoom), and created an entirely new platform for our sketch show.
The answer is YES! We miss all your smiling faces and your uproarious laughter, but live shows have been CANCELED due to Miss Rona. The Single Life "Spring Break" sketch show that never was is not forgotten. We anxiously await the day we get to perform again in front of a live audience—the optimal word being LIVE, which is why we want you to stay the F*ck home and watch LOCKDOWN Part 1 & 2 live on YOUTUBE.
Don't miss our next two shows @ 7:30 PM!
9/18 & 9/19
Singe Life sketch team brings you scenes from a quarantine wasteland with a patchwork of pandemic interactions ranging from social distanced dating disasters to patriotic pleas for perseverance. Let Single Life make it all a little less...eh...with our lockdown of laughs!

I know what you're thinking - Hot Diggity Dog! But wait! It gets even better!
We invited a few clever actor/writer/comedian/improvisers to join our illustrious cast. But, before I introduce you to them I think I should address the elephant in the room- Who is Single Life? Because I realize some of you reading this right now are thinking YES AND? Why do I care, Miss Thing? ( I'm not sure why my inner voice suddenly sounds like a Drag Queen on the show POSE- but I'm not going to lie- I'm feeling it.) And there she goes, right out the door on her seven-inch stilettos because for some reason there are never enough parenthetical-s to express my inner thoughts.
Who is SINGLE LIFE?
The Single Life sketch team consists of three fashionable late debutantes that never say never because life is a roll of the dice, and these three are into living life to the fullest!
ERR! Wrong answer, but it sure sounds nice.
TRUTH - Single Life started as a few funny people talking about the woes of being single in the Big Apple. The ups and downs of having roommates - several at a time in a tiny one bedroom apartment (sound familiar to anyone) - the lump of coal you were given for X-Mas the last three years in a row - the nosey neighbor that thinks your life is more interesting than what's new on Netflix - the ever revolving door of sex partners your "frienemie" seems to have while your waiting for the one that doesn't seem to know you exist - love triangles that you accidentally fell into - the weird relationship you developed with your grandma and her friends when you realized you'll never fit in with people your own age because you didn't have cable as a child - the girls that post pictures of themselves on instagram drinking jello shots off hard bodies - the way you wish you were adopted by the one family that seemed so cool when you were a kid - until you found out they were gun toting freaks that cuddle up with a Trump doll at night - the homeschooled family that gets taught an important lesson by Mom about stereotyping people, which is - Never okay! Unless of course, you're doing it because you're working out some deep-seated (unconscious) rage that has been festering inside of you since you were in high school over a troll that lived under the bleachers until she decided to crawl out from under them so she could slut-shame you for dating the entire football team- and of course the self-help group that you joined because it's the only place you didn't feel like the biggest loser in the room. Eek -that was a mouth full. And, now, without further ado, I present to you our eminent cast.
The LOCKDOWN (Part 1 & 2) is brought to you by Single's Life core team members Izzy Church, Natalie Hunter, and Kevin Hippler. Special thanks to the contributing writers & performers Laura Rose Cook, Kevin Janaway, Saturday Lawson, and Frank Logan. Great work team!
