Ian Abramson’s “7 Minutes in Purgatory”, That Has Comedians Perform Separated from Audience, Is Now a Comedy Central Web Series
The Comedy Central web series version of Ian Abramson’s brilliant show 7 Minutes in Purgatory, where comics do a set while separated from a live audience and can’t hear their laughter while that audience can watch remotely, is finally here.
With Comedy Central footing the bill, Ian got a truck outside of the venue to sequester the performers away from the audience so there is absolutely no way that the comedians can hear the audience (on top of noise cancelling ear protection).
Watch what happens when you stick Nick Vatterott…
…and sketch group Wham City get stuck in the back of a truck and try to do comedy.
