Crime of the Hour is a true crime-themed comedy improv show. The host, Abby, reports the facts of a famous crime standup style and improv comics use those facts to create original scenes. Every show covers a different crime; meaning no two shows are alike! Crimes are selected based on the festival or venue location. We want to tell your local crime story with a comic twist!


In a World Without Heroes there are a few featured players


Abby Deely

Bio: Abby Deely, the host, is an NYC based comic. She has traveled globally doing comedy but is most at home on a small stage at a cool bar where no one knows a comedy show is happening.

Perfect murder: It is all about the randomness. If I had to commit a murder, I’d kill a strange at a distance and wonder away.

Franco Danger

Franco Danger, improviser, is a Stand up comedian and improviser
from New Jersey. He has performed at clubs and colleges all over the world!
Perfect Murder: I’d buried the body next to someone’s casket because no one
ever checks the cemetery for a fresh one.



Angelique is a comedian who keeps you on your toes. Whether it’s
with her array of characters or her quick improv skills she is always a delight who isn’t afraid to surprise with an unexpected twist or turn.
Perfect murder: Angelique would NOT get away with murder. She’s far too disorganized and obsessed with germ avoidance.

Shafer Ward

Shafer is a staple of the New Jersey comedy scene. He has
performed internationally and is known as the producer of Escaping Trump’s America at the Edinburgh Fringe for two years.
Perfect Murder: “bump” into someone close to a train


Kate Nichols

Kate Nichols is a comedian who performs stand-up, improv, sketch and storytelling. With the help of her ferocious wit she can charm any crowd with her “laugh out loud” truths. Perfect Murder: To get away with murder she would completely change her identity by finally learning how to do that contouring makeup thing that makes you look totally different.
