It’s Here!!! The Very First Episode of GG’s Java Joint

After many years of dreaming about it, a vision has finally come to fruition. GG’s Java Joint, a fully improvised comedy show, created and produced by Two Door’s own Holly Payberg (Torroija) debuts today.

Legend has it that GG’s is owned by a reluctant brother/sister duo (Gerry & Gerry) who met for the first time when their father passed away and left the Java Joint to them both in his will and they are now stuck navigating this new business together.

But don’t take our word for it, take it from Gerry herself. She started her own blog so that she could share with you all the comings, goings and doings happening at that wacky Coffee Shop/Bar known as GG’s Java Joint so make sure to subscribe Up first employee interviews!

GG’s Java Joint is a fully improvised show (meaning none of these actors have a clue what they are going to say before they say it, therefore it can also be said that they are clueless, but that wouldn’t be nice, so don’t say that.) Enjoy!

GG’s Java Joint Is Now Open For Business

We are happy to report that the very first shoot of what is now lovingly referred to as GG’s Java Joint, a fictitious place where anything that can happens does, was a resounding success in all ways.

The creator of this show Writer/Director/Comedienne Holly Payberg said “We weren’t sure how it would go as this show is an Improv show from start to finish, relying solely on the characters we commit to and the location we are locked to (GG’s) in order to keep it on the rails, but much to our delight it turned out even funnier and more successful than we had even hoped, and if this is a sign of what is to come then expect loads of fun to keep on coming from the Joint.”

A very special and heartfelt thanks goes out to all the amazingly talented Improv performers who gave of their time and their brilliance to be the first to ever populate GG’s. John Connon, Holly Payberg, Mhairi Morrison, Tony Robinette, Susan diRende, JJ Dunlap, James Mason, Tami Hillberry Presley, Eric Wielochowsky, Ben Marcus, Amie DellaValle Bennett, Matty Norwood, Laura Holliday & Sophie Torroija you rocked our worlds. And extra special thanks to our crew Diego Torroija and Max Grill.
