The Water Coolers

Satirical Musical Comedy Troupe

The Water Coolers is a New York based musical comedy group that delivers songs & sketch comedy to corporate, association, and convention audiences, as well as, appearing in theaters across the country. For your next sales meeting, office party, or annual retreat, gather round The Water Coolers™. 

The Water Coolers employs original songs, musical parodies and comic sketches to lovingly lampoon the fast-changing, fast-talking, hard-driving office environment of contemporary America. Both a salute and a send-up, The Water Coolers satirizes the myths, mores and madness of corporate living.

The Water Coolers is self-contained and portable entertainment. A company of seven including five performers, one pianist, and one production manager carry all scenic elements and costumes. Talk to us about optional packages to customize the show for your audience.

Corporate trainer and former conference planner Sally Allen and comedy writer Thomas Michael Allen decided to blend their individual expertise into a common venture. Using Broadway talent to create first-class musical comedy entertainment tailored to the needs of the professional meeting planner, the Allens created The Water Coolers, a "laugh-out-loud" parody of the workplace.

People like to talk about themselves. They also love to hear stories about experiences familiar to them. The famous theme song from Cheers said it best, "Sometimes you wanna go where everybody knows your name." The Water Coolers take that concept, add hilarious comedy, original music and parodies of familiar songs, and use NYC comics and singers to celebrate the crazy, funny, maddening and yet somehow universally comforting insanity of every day life. The Water Coolers created the act originally for the meetings industry but, since their Off Broadway run in 2002, The Water Coolers has found an enthusiastic and devoted audience in the mainstream entertainment world.

The Act

The material that The Water Coolers regularly perform in our award-winning act -- incredible singing, on point material about life and work, and super comedy writing.  And as of April 1, 2009, we are introducing a smaller version of the act -- The Water Coolers "Traveling Light" -- that's perfect for daytime programs or intimate evening shows. The smaller version is terrific and the full-sized show is super-charged.
