Pajama Men (US)
Festival favourites, the Pajama Men make their Tallinn debut with their award winning Pterodactyl Nights. This is sketch comedy at it’s pinnacle.
Drawing on their huge comic catalogue, always introducing new material, and lacing it all together with bizarre and hilarious improvised tangents, the Pajama Men create an anarchic night of jubilant, uproarious and inventive sketch comedy. Whether you’ve been watching them for years or are seeing them for the first time, Pajama Men’s Pterodactyl Nights will get you where you need gettin’.
Shenoah Allen and Mark Chavez met in high school, in 1993, while auditioning for an improv team. Since then they have become a world-renowned double act known for their unique style of narrative-sketch comedy that incorporates elements of stand-up, sketch, improv, and both outlandish and familiar characters, all of which are narrowly contained by intricately woven story threads that tend towards the surreal and the macabre.
Shenoah and Mark’s unique and surprising style has garnered them high acclaim all over the international comedy circuit, where they’ve been performing to packed houses for years.

"One of the most dazzling displays of comedy theatre I’ve ever seen. It's weird. And it's wonderful."
