The Associated Mess are a short-form improv comedy troupe based in Pennsylvania's Lehigh Valley. Originally started by Allentown-based actor Joshua Neth in 2003, the troupe was put on hiatus when he went on a series of national tours. Neth resurrected the troupe in 2009 along with Bethlehem-based professional stand-up comic Ryan Hill and have established regular shows at the Allentown Brew Works and the ArtsQuest Center at SteelStacks.
The troupe consists of some of the Lehigh Valley's funniest performers, many of whom have gone through training at Second City and/or Upright Citizen's Brigade, and many of whom have extensive backgrounds in stage performance. Also armed with talented writers, the troupe has put on several improv shows mixed with sketch comedy, all around the theme of the current holiday season.
The list of places the Associated Mess have performed since coming back include the Civic Theatre of Allentown, Mayfair, the Celtic Classic, Muhlenberg College, Sellersville Theatre and Hotel Bethlehem, just to name a few. Whether it's a private booking for your own event or at one of the troupe's regular shows at the Allentown Brew Works or ArtsQuest Center at SteelStacks, you have to see the Associated Mess, the Lehigh Valley's premier improv comedy troupe!Book The Associated Mess Now
