A longform improv comedy group in New York City. They perform regularly the first and third Fridays of every month at 8pm in the basement of the Triple Crown restaurant, as part of The Belmont Show, which they host. They also perform at various venues around New York City.
Were briefly known as "Sharpton!" after merging with another practice group in February 2009 consisting of Joanna Borns, Tim Duffy, Flannery Foster, and Grant O'Brien. This merger was short-lived, however, and remnants of this merging group, as well as Bethea and Capristo, chose to form another group, The Patsies. Bethea and Capristo were the only ones to remain members of both groups.
Brian Barrett: December 2008 - August 2009

Derived their name from the show they host at Triple Crown ("The Belmont Show"). The show's name, in turn, was created as a play on the name of the restaurant where they practice and perform (the name Triple Crown is a nod to the trio of horse races, of which The Belmont Stakes is one).
