Described by the Associated Press as, "A breezy, satirical, Dilbert-like musical revue that tickles the ears and funnybones."  The New York-based Water Coolers uses Broadway talent to deliver hilarious songs and sketch comedy about work, life and everything in between. 

The Water Coolers created the act originally for the meetings industry, but with their Off Broadway run in 2002, The Water Coolers has found an enthusiastic and devoted audience in the mainstream entertainment world.  Performing regularly in Las Vegas and other cities across the country, The Water Coolers energize their audiences by musically and comically celebrating what everyone goes through in everyday life. 

The Water Coolers are comprised of five Broadway-based performers and a unique combination of New York comedy writers, including Thomas Michael Allen, the co-creator of "Tony and Tina's Wedding", the longest-running comedy in New York theatre history.
