"I Want to See Play Cole!"

Play Cole is the most original, funniest, smartest, and best looking sketch comedy group to come along since the Zany Boys.

Play Cole is a NY/Seattle based video and improv sketch group that is feared in the all the land for their ability to process dairy. The members have been active in the comedy scene, writing, doing improv, stand-up, or just eating dairy with a smug look on their faces.  Play Cole relies on technology to liberate itself from the constraints of time and space and contribute gems for the betterment of the human race.
