We are Mick and Joshua, aka PINKYSWEAR, a music and comedy duo from Chicago.
We met in 2014 in improv classes in Chicago and decided to study guitar together at the Old Town School of Folk Music where we met our guitar teacher and future producer Steve Dawson.
More established in the comedy world, we have played music as PINKYSWEAR at comedy venues. PINKYSWEAR had a 4-week tenure at a Second City theater, hosted and produced The Experiment: Sketch, a 3-month show at the iO Theater, and had runs at the Annoyance Theater mainstage, the Playground Theater and at the Shith*le, amongst others. Additionally, we’ve participated in comedy festivals such as SnubFest, the Beat Weekend, and the UTG Improv Classic.
When not busy with PINKYSWEAR, Mick has a comedic solo show called “Me Talking, Mostly” which he performed at the Second City Theater and the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and Joshua is on the board at CIC Theater and is an active member of the Chicago community improvising with Gallon, and creating and producing The Experiment.
