About Hardy BoysKat Brown and Jesse Suphan come together to form the musical improv duo The Hardy Boys!
They take you on a completely improvised musical journey to discover who or what "had done it". Based on an audience suggestion these gumshoes set off on the case! Finding clues and bringing culprits to justice is what they do best in this hilarious and bold musical improv comedy!
