Umberto MacDougal allows you to look through the window of his tragic manpain. With a beard full of tears and a melancholy guitarist playing a sorrowful tune, Umberto reveals the pain that men feel.

Umberto MacDougal first reached the New York stage at Under St. Marks Theater at Penny's Open Mic. Since then, he's been around the city at Comdy Period, Sketch Block, Soul Glo, Skinny Bitch Jesus Meeting's Daddy's Basement, The Trachtenburg Variety Hour, and several other comedy and variety shows. He's still unsure why he continues to be booked for comedy shows.

Emleigh Wolf (Umberto MacDougal) has been performing in New York City for several years now, but she found a home at Penny's Open Mic at Under St. Marks Theater just over two years ago.

A geek at heart, Emleigh first became aware of the idea of "manpain" through her ventures in the online fanfiction world, and through hearing many men's woes, she quickly realized that manpain was very much present in the real world as well. With an infatuation for facial hair and all things Scottish, Umberto MacDougal was soon born.

Since then, Emleigh has taken Umberto to shows all around the city, including Sketch Block, Comedy Period, Soul Glo, and Skinny Bitch Jesus Meeting's Daddy's Basement to name a few.

When she isn't performing, Emleigh spends her time designing websites, explaining to people who Bruce Campbell is, and preparing for the inevitable zombie apocalypse.

Don't tell anyone, but she totes has a crush on her director.

At Under St. Marks she also directed Sexyback and Michael Birch’s One Man Hamlet. One Man Hamlet is now touring Universities and High schools.

"With the occasional lip quiver (perfect!) along the way and, of course, an emotional breakdown to cap off the set, Umberto had me feeling a pain in my gut that was equal parts pity and laughter." - Evan Couch (eventist.org)
