Tuff Boys is a Brooklyn-based musical comedy group created by Ryan Harrington, Isaac Himmelman, and Brendan Ryan. Their 2017 short film Tuff Boys premiered at the 2017 New York Television Festival.
Tuff Boys is currently developing Brooklyn Moving Company, a musical series executive produced by Thank You Brain! Productions (Those Who Can’t, Ryan Hansen Solves Crimes on Television). The pilot episode wrapped production in March and was directed by Krysia Plonka (Those Who Can't). The pilot is premiering in July as part of the 2018 NYTVF Independent Pilot Competition.
Tuff Boys also produces 24 Hour Musical, a live theater project where the group writes, stages, and choreographs a biographical musical based on the life of one audience member selected at random from pre-sale tickets. 24 Hour Musical debuted at The Well in Bushwick, and is currently in residency at the People’s Improv Theater in New York City through 2018.
Ryan, Isaac, and Brendan all grew up writing and performing music, but they began collaborating on musical comedy as students at UMass, Amherst.
In addition to Tuff Boys, Ryan, Isaac, and Brendan write and produce video and music for commercial and media clients.
