as a relatively long-posting member I am constantly amazed by the sheer expertise...so here's a relly tough one.

Last time I was in NYC, I went to see a comedy night. It was in a vry simple building, not a rpoper club/theater, in the West 340s (IIRC). It consisted of fiarly improvisational, off-kilter stuff.. Very, vey good. AND I CANNOT REMEMBER THE NAME (BTW, I spotted it in Time Out New York edition).

The name of the troupe/evening was a play on words - soemthign catholic sounding.


There's a bottle of nice wine in it for the first poster who nails this (proof of age required :D ).

Was it something done by the Upright Citizen's Brigade?

Pop the cork.

Not quite yet, Zippy. They're not exactly obscure, and the name sounds more Protestant than Catholic to me.

Also, I'll pass on the hipster crown. I will take the wine, however, if my answer is correct.
