2016 FringeNYC Overall Excellence Award for Ensemble!
By John Ahlin & Christopher Patrick Mullen
Two colleagues meet for their monthly ping pong game, in the back of a nondescript bar in a nondescript college town. But this meeting is different. Tonight, to the real-time patter of paddles, buried secrets get uncovered, and the two realize that their lives are more entwined than they ever imagined.

"ChipandGus is bright, funny and cathartic: an emotionally resonant buddy comedy for thinking audiences."
- Laura Heller, TimeOut NY
"ChipandGus gracefully withstands the tension with thoughtful character development and a barrage of witty dialogue that flows as easily as Ahlin and Mullen's impressive volleys."
- Hayley Levitt, TheaterMania
"The rapid fire repartee that bounces back and forth faster than the ping pong balls that fly through the air is the source of energy in ChipandGus, the remarkable two-hander one act play."
- Joseph Verlezza, Theatre Reviews Limited
“ChipandGus is funny, real, sad, and surprising."
“ChipandGus, produced by Fat Knight Theatre, is far more than simply a comedy with balls, it is surely one of the shows to attend."
- Megan Lohne, NY Theatre Guide
