Chris O’Neill and Paul Valenti liken their comedy show to a playground. And not only is everyone welcome to come inside, but when they do, the outside ceases to exist.
The duo, based in Stamford, Connecticut, will bring “The Chris & Paul Show” to Auburn Public Theater on Saturday.
In an interview with The Citizen, O’Neill and Valenti said they take inspiration from classic performers like Buster Keaton, and Laurel and Hardy. Throughout the interview, the duo at different times described their act as “a live cartoon,” “a visual story” and “a big kids show for adults.” That classic style gives the comedy of O’Neill and Valenti a timeless quality, they believe.
