ABOUT TRIPLE DECKER PRODUCTIONS
Triple Decker Productions is a production company and artist collective specializing in comedy based in Los Angeles, California. The founding members include Erin Berry, Matt Catanzano, Tim Johnson, and Bill Connolly, four entertainers with unique perspectives and a combined four decades of comedy experience.
Erin, Matt, Tim, and Bill met while performing at the Improv Asylum in Boston, Massachusetts several years ago and, after separating to different cities for a period, found themselves reunited in Los Angeles in early 2016. Quickly, they formed Triple Decker Productions and have since launched successful live show formats including Crowne Comedy and East Coast Wasted. The group has performed at the Comedy Central Stage, the Hudson Theater, and The Complex Hollywood, and was named "Best in the Fest" at the Burbank Comedy Festival.
The members of Triple Decker Productions have performed in over 8,000 shows and taught improv techniques to thousands of corporate employees, university students, and aspiring comedians across the country. The group brings a fresh, exciting approach to improvisation and sketch comedy and is eager to perform at your festival, company outing, or showcase.
