MARLBORO, VT -- (February 17, 2011) -- Marlboro College presents a free, public performance of Double Negatives by comedian Evan O'Television on Thursday, March 3, at 7:30pm, in Whittemore Theater.

Using recordings made of himself in advance, Evan O'Television (a.k.a. Evan O'Sullivan) performs, what he calls, a "conceptual comedy" dialogue that puts a modern technological and psychological spin on the vaudevillian comedic traditions of Abbott & Costello and Edgar Bergen & Charlie McCarthy.

Double Negatives received high praise at the 2010 New York International Fringe Festival, including four stars from Time Out New York. In his review of the show for, Josh Sherman wrote, "I was wiping away tears of laughter...[O'Television] shows the professionalism of a show-biz veteran as he pokes fun at his own milieu."

A graduate of Amherst College, O'Sullivan has been a mainstay of the Boston theater and improv scene for close to 20 years, during that time he co-founded the underground performing arts space, PAN9, and co-served as its artistic director for 10 years.
