Couples Therapy

The betrothed Naomi Ekperigin and Andy Beckerman host Couples Therapy in the back room at Hi-Fi Bar.

By Andrew Andrews

At most stand-up comedy shows, you’ll see a lineup of comedians each reciting material that they’ve honed to deliver just the right amount of punch to keep their set rolling. Or maybe it’ll be the kind of show where the comics try out new material to see what kind of reaction it gets. Not at Couples Therapy, though: this one is different. For starters, they don’t just put one comedian on stage at a time, but two of them. And not just two random performers, but two people who actually know each other quite well: as friends, show-business partners or even from a romantic relationship. And they don’t just tell jokes; they talk about their relationship: funny moments they’ve shared, horrific experiences they’ve survived together... and sometimes—O.K., often times—they just rag on each other.
