NCF: Squirm & Germ and The Pushers (Thursday)

SQUIRM AND GERM is a high-energy music comedy duo hailing from NYC. These two MC's use their hip-hop alter egos to celebrate their irreverent passions in life with songs about everything from active pregnancies to the state of Maine, naps and neti pots. They produce infectious beats, legit harmonies reminiscent of Rockapella, and rhyme faster than a kid who drank five Red Bulls at a sleepover.

Their raucous live show is for music lovers with an appreciation for hip-hop, funk, rock, tasty synths, club jams, and rapid fire pop culture references. This will be their first time playing in Norfolk and they hope everybody is ready to jump out of their seats for a ridiculous feel-good party!

Squirm and Germ (Tim Girrbach and Rodney Umble) have rocked the mic at a number of notable venues around NYC including The Apollo, Joe's Pub, Ars Nova, Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre East, Tammany Hall, and the 92Y Tribeca. INNY Award nominees for "Maine, MoFo" (Best Comedy Song and Video) and Official Selections of NYC Comedy Week, NY Funny Songs Fest, Empire Comedy Festival, ANT Fest at Ars Nova, Philly Funny Songs Fest, and the 2014 Charleston Comedy Festival. With their sketch group Drop Six they performed in the Sketch Comedy Festivals of D.C., NYC, Seattle, and won Best of the Fest at the 2007 Toronto Sketch Fest.

S&G have trained extensively in improvisation at the Second City, Upright Citizens Brigade, and Magnet Theaters. Their debut album 'Late Bloomers' was co-produced by Sammy Bananas of Fool's Gold Records and is available on iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, and Pandora.

NCF: Improv Explosion (Friday)

Chris Trew +2

Trew + 2 is Chris Trew plus two strangers from the audience with no improv experience who get a very quick lesson (less than 3 minutes). The three of them do a montage, the final scene being the first and only scene featuring only the two strangers who, strangely enough, always seem to figure it out and make something killer and memorable happen.

Trew + 2 is a big hit on the comedy festival circuit and is appearing at several festivals this year.

About Chris: Chris Trew is a full time comedian (“Trew is out of his fucking mind” - The Austin Chronicle) and part time professional wrestling manager (“a performance artist at the highest level” - The Wrestling Blog) splitting his time between New Orleans and Austin where he is the Creative Director of The New Movement, a comedy theater and training center that's home to events like Hell Yes Fest and the Megaphone Marathons.

Trew has headlined comedy festivals all over the U.S. and has been featured in GQ Magazine, Splitsider, the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally, America’s Got Talent, and many other strange things. He helped “start a comedy scene from scratch” (Splitsider) and is the co-host of Air Sex Battles on MTV, debuting later this year.

He was named "one of 10 comedians you should know" by Paper Magazine and is the co-author of Improv Wins, a book about improv that serves as the textbook at The New Movement.
