Nutty By Nature has been making audiences laugh throughout the metropolitan NY/NJ area for the past 15 years. In addition to having performed at The NJ Performing Arts Center (NJPAC), The South Street Seaport,12 Miles West, Theater Under the Stars,The Black River Playhouse, Luna Stage, Barnes & Noble and Borders bookstores; they were featured on the E! Television/Style Network's reality TV series, Try My Life.

The Herald News called them "Bawdy, brilliant and proof that ingenuity can strike at a moments notice." Members of the troupe include Troupe Director Paul Acocella of Oldwick, Elaine Brodie of Caldwell, Jody Eiden of Wyckoff, Laura Hartin of Montclair, Matt Hopkins of Elmwood Park, Robin Lewis of Livingston, Rich McDonald of West Orange, Brendan Maly of Butler, Shelly Miller of Mount Olive, Tarek Salib of Edison, Jackie Valeo of Saddle Brook and Ted Wrigley of West Orange.

The show is based entirely on audience suggestions! "After all", says executive director Bob Sapoff, "the only thing better than having a great idea is watching it come to life right before your eyes"! In addition to providing the material for the show, audience members are encouraged to bring their own crazy "props" that the actors will use during the show!
