About This Event
"One of the funniest, most fascinating and fastest moving solo plays to hit New York in many a season. Ninety minutes of nonstop laughter, it's also an edge of your seat adventure loaded with unbelievable real-life surprises,"
Patrick Combs tells the amazing-but-true story of how he deposited a $95,093.35 junk mail check marked ‘non-negotiable’–hoping to spread a little banking cheer to tellers—and how it erupted into a staggering and funny David vs. Goliath-like adventure that still continues today in the form of his internationally touring, award-winning, off-Broadway one-man show about the incident: Man 1, Bank 0. What happens after the bank cashes the ridiculous check? To name only a few things: angry banking officers threatening “jail time” and “death”; the nation’s leading authority on banking coming out of retirement; astonishing legal twists; and worldwide media coverage.
Man 1, Bank 0 has sold out in New York during its off-Broadway run at the Lambs Theatre in the heart of Times Square, as well as shows at HBO’s 2004 U.S. Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen, the Spoleto Festival in Charleston, Comedy Central Stage in Los Angeles, the San Francisco Fringe Festival and the New Zealand International Comedy Festival in Auckland, just to name a few.
