Step right up! Please, move in closer, fill up all available space. You there! Have you experienced… the Menagerie? Ah, yes, the Menagerie! A late-night jubilee of comedy like none other. Three acts, scarcely if ever seen before, possibly never to be seen again. An extravaganza of ephemera, a carnival of creativity, a festival of phantasmagoria! Intrigued? You know you are. Right this way…
September’s coterie includes:
The Screening Room: Thanks for being our focus group tonight! We blew our Netflix budget making pilots and can only afford to bring one to air. We hope you can help us pick the right one. Produced by Donald Green, starring Braden Clark, Nate Ealy, Phil Mazzoni, Dylan O’Reilly, Clara Olson, Annie Schneller, and John Vadas, accompaniment by Ryan Nuzzo.
Nighthawks: It may be 9:30PM in Pittsburgh, but it’s 2AM at a diner somewhere: Pull up a stool, grab a hot cup of mud, and order something off the grill. This improvised show invites you into the Hopper painting to spend some time with the night-owls there, learning about the lonely people at the counter, what brought them there, and maybe even a little something about yourself. Produced by Remy Porter, starring Sarah Allen, Kelly Mariska, Ryan Nuzzo, and Remy Porter.
Q-Zone Sketch Comedy: We’ve scoured far and wide for the freshest new sketch comedy available and we’re bringing it to you LIVE! (Except for that video sketch. That one’s not live.) Trust us, it’s right in your Q-Zone! Produced by Georgia Burr; written and performed by Georgia Burr, Adam Lauver, and Madeline Phillips.
