Armed & Ridiculous is a comedy conglomerate and creative oligarchy based in Brooklyn, NY. It was founded and is lead by Mark Annotto and John Payne, who have been performing in the NYC sketch scene since 2002. Since that time, A&R has grown into a comedic juggernaut with a diverse range of acts, shows and contributors. And when we say diverse, that means black people. And a latino, too!
Armed & Ridiculous shot their first-ever short film about the seedy underground world of New York City Ping Pong, which was recently announced as an official selection at the Queens International Film Festival, as well as the Tribeca Jilted Film Festival.
