Michael Wolf and Colin O’Brien are neither women named Nancy or whimpish boys no matter how much they identify with the latter. I mean, would sissy boys be part of, O.S.F.U.G., the most punk rock sketch show in all of NYC? Would they have put out not one but TWO musical comedy albums?! Would they have worked tirelessly to also write a twenty five minute musical, “Nancy: Home is Where the Songs Is”, about a haunted timeshare in Massachusetts?! Well, maybe because ghosts are a fascinating subject for everyone. But that’s besides the point!
Their current album Scream the Hits paints hilarious visual images that would make Van Gogh smile. Their humor does what a lot of mainstream musical comedy aims to do and goes beyond. They highlight the humor in awkward moments that come about through real human experiences, all while tugging on your delicate heartstrings.
