Directed by Laura Viramontes
Jack, Wanda, and Ben
- While Couchophilia ended the evening, Viramontes use the actor who played Tony for a wordless opening act, in which he first discovers the joys of couch love.
- There were no repairmen in this version of Couchophilia.
- “Couchophilia starts with a genuinely funny concept and, in a short space of time, does a lot.” … “Mariano has one more brief skit worthy of the early days of Saturday Night Live, in which a woman (Jessica Beane) keeps running out and finding new husbands…”—Eric Marchese, Orange County Register
- “Couchophilia, again by Mike Mariano, is the perfect closer to the piece, as the center stage white couch is undressed, stripped, and unzipped for some Good Lovin’…”—Paul Burt, Wall Four
- “Two hours of silliness that’ll beat anything you could do on your own couch. Unless you’re having sex with it, of course.”—Jana J. Monji, OC Weekly
