About Ninja Sex Party

A musical comedy duo based out of New York City featuring Danny Sexbang (Leigh Daniel Avidan) and Ninja Brian (Brian Wecht), Ninja Sex Party was inspired by the likes of similarly skewed comedy units like Flight of the Conchords and Lonely Island. Formed in 2009, Avidan and Wecht, both of whom were introduced via friends from the improvisational sketch comedy group Upright Citizens Brigade, summarize the project as concerning "a Jewish Superhero who wears a unitard, with his best friend who's a ninja, and together they sing songs about dicks, and try to hit (unsuccessfully) on women." The duo began performing together shortly after hatching the idea, and before long their shows were drawing huge crowds and their videos were popping up on the front pages of high-profile comedy sites like Funny or Die, Dailymotion, and CollegeHumor. They issued their first album under the moniker, NSFW, in 2011, followed by Strawberries and Cream in 2013 and Attitude City in 2015. For 2016's Under the Covers, the duo took on popular songs from the 1970s and '80s, from "Take on Me" to "Everybody Wants to Rule the World" to "Rock with You" to "Wish You Were Here." A second volume was released in late 2017, this time charting yet more AOR standards ("Asia," "More Than a Feeling," "Pour Some Sugar on Me," "Rocket Man"). They have also released albums under the name Starbomb, a collaborative project with YouTube star Arin "Egoraptor" Hanson. ~ James Christopher Monger
