Between Two Bushes
Kristen Buckels and Lacey Jeka founded their partnership spiritually in the late 80's finding each other physically on the set of Colin Quinn's Cop show in the fall of 2015 where they were asked politely to "leave and never come back." Months later after wild accusations of unfair treatment and racism they were welcomed back with open arms at Colin Quinn's The New York Story at the historic Cherry Lane Theatre.
Since then they have been inspired that anything can happen after watching and assisting two elderly Jewish men George St. Geegland and Gil Faizon get Ben Brantley to rave about a tuna sandwich centered play.
Kristen has recently been spotted ordering dry Chicken for Colin Quinn with the occasional complaint of having "an attitude problem" her most recent accomplishments include getting her cat neutered as well as getting a medium security all women's correctional facility in rural New York to agree to let Julio Torres and Chris Gethard conduct interviews. Getting her sketches reviewed by none other than Billboards 40 Under 40 Mike Berkowitz who came back with a resounding, "no more please".
Lacey is hot off her sold out run of "Tween Twin Detectives" at the Annoyance theatre where Kristen Buckels was quoted in saying, "worth the discovery of the J train." - "semblance was uncanny" raved the girl that made her move her purse. It has no been given a Spank at the prestigious UCB theater.
Then thrilling news came that Colin Quinn was quoted in a private phone conversation saying, "they're insufferable" solidifying their place in the New York comedy scene. Reeling from that review John Mulaney and Nick Kroll have hailed them as, "under foot" - they make them "uncomfortable at best". The Daily Show's Hasan Minhaj was "un available" for comment. http://www.twobushes.com/
