From Chickopee, Tennessee, twins, Prudence and Pervis Purdy, travel the world trying to find stardom with their vaudeville act, searching for a glimmer of happiness, but most of all trying to get a break from their overbearing momma. They use southern charm, naïveté, and twin code to get away with murder, sometimes literally.

We like to involve the audience in our performances, not only taking suggestions, but making them a part of the show frequently using them as props, costumes, or set decoration. We love to have them onstage and play. We also inject a fun dose of southern culture and anachronistic characters.

Where Can I See the Purdy Twins?


Every 4th Sunday of the Month The Purdy Twins host the Catbath Hour of Catsby at the Clubhouse.

Since 2011, Catsby has strived to be a feel-good, one-of-a-kind comedy show — not only offering sets from new and veteran improv teams, but also a variety of original features. These include everything from experiments with music and dance, clowning, sketch-improv hybrid sets and our signature pro-am series where veterans guide newcomers through their very first show. Catsby takes place on the 2nd and 4th Sunday of every month from 7:30 to 11PM at the The Clubhouse. It consists of three set blocks (7:30, 8:30 and 9:30) — each one curated to have its own look and feel. The show is FREE with admission.

Our Radio Hour

The Second Thursday of Every Month The Purdy Twins host Our Radio Hour at The Pack Theater.

Our Radio Hour is an hour and a half of variety comedy acts selected for your viewing and listening pleasure.  It’s a night of music, comedy, dance, magic, thrills and suspense.  The show is also recorded for a podcast.


The Purdy Twins travel the country performing at Improv and Clown festivals.  Recent performances include San Diego’s IMPRIDE festival, The Antelope Valley Improv Festival, The Long Beach Sketch/Prov Festival, The Wasatch Improv Festival in Salt Lake City UT and The Alaska State Imrpov Festival.
