Robot Teammate & The Accidental Party is an LA-based musical comedy troupe programmed to entertain humans. Activated by audience suggestions, the Robots create completely improvised shows featuring polyphonic music, inventive lyrics, and fantastical narratives faster than you can say 01101011011.
Since 2012, the Robots have captivated audiences with their spontaneous musical adventures in venues such as Upright Citizens Brigade, Nerdist, and on the Geek & Sundry Twitch.tv stream. In 2014, the team set a new world record with an 86-week winning streak in the audience-voted “cagematch” competition at iO West. Their original scripted sci-fi musical TIMEHEART premiered to sold out audiences at the Hollywood Fringe 2015, earning multiple nominations including Best Musical and was the top-grossing show of the festival.
Currently, the Robots are touring regional comedy festivals, performing for private events, and hosting monthly shows at iO West Theater and LA’s largest craft brewery, Golden Road Brewing. Their customizable shows include virtuosic piano and percussion that accompany Disney-style musicals or a variety of games (à la Whose Line Is It Anyway?), and can range from 15 minutes to 2 hours.
“Robot Teammate is always worth watching. Their storytelling is top class, their musical versatility is hugely impressive, and, above all, they are properly funny.” – Ewan Phillips, Producer, Whose Line is it Anyway
