Charles at the Comedy Central Stage, August 17th

August 10, 2016 - Leave a Response

On Wednesday, 8/17 at 8pm, Charles will be performing an all new feature-length sketch comedy show at the Comedy Central Stage. The show is absolutely free but requires reservations, which can be made by calling: 323.960.5519




It’s been almost a year since our last live feature-length show, so come spend the evening with us as we walk around the stage and say things specifically engineered to illicit laughter. Things like: “that’s what I’m saying”, “gender is a construct”, and “can we please, please not do this sketch?” (all of which, in context, we assure you, are great and funny lines).

Details below. Also, on this Facebook event.

Hope to see you there!

Charles’ “Moby Alpha” comes to the PIT Loft New York

March 16, 2016 - Leave a Response



Charles & PM2 Entertainment Present the NYC Premiere of Moby Alpha.

Written and performed by Charles (Chuck Armstrong & Charlie Stockman)

Wowing crowds from L.A. to Edmonton to Edinburgh, Moby Alpha pays preposterous homage to classic sci-fi and bombastic literature, with nods to Alien, Star Trek, 2001: A Space Odyssey, and myriad others. Moby Alpha tells the story of a mad captain’s quest for revenge on the amorphous energy cloud that temporarily took his leg. More simply, Moby Alpha is Moby-Dick in space – but funny. The show is performed in an entirely dark theater, with the only light emanating from the duo’s custom-built, million-color, LED space helmets – creating a unique, otherworldly aesthetic. No flashlights necessary. Moby Alpha is a space-age comic romp unlike anything you’ve seen on land, the high seas, or deep space.

Produced by PM2 Entertainment.
