about Kiss on the lips




Kiss on the Lips is Jonathan Van Halem, Alex Guaglianone, and Garrett Verdone. They got their start in college, performing in their friends' basement. Their show is a fast-paced, quick-witted, and absurd journey through missed social cues, personal embarrassments, and one-of-a-kind characters laced a heavy dose of early-to-mid 2000s nostalgia.  


Kiss on the Lips has performed with the likes of BJ Novak, Beth Stelling, and Seaton Smith to sold out crowds across New York City and New Jersey. They've played at Chicago Sketchfest, Sketchfest NYC, Brookyln Brewery, The Bell House, and plenty of other places. They enjoyed a four month run at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theater's Backyard Brawl.
