BEDTIME STORIES, the monthly sketch variety show created and hosted by Gregg Gethard, steps into the ring tonight to pay tribute to “the greatest artform in the history of mankind” – professional wrestling.
Tonights show, A Comedic Tribute to the Squared Circle, will feature much more than the sketches, videos and powerpoints that pull in packed houses month after month. With Gethard being a true wrestling diehard, it’s truly no holds barred… You’ll see several wrestling greats take the stage, including standup comedy from former WWE / current ROH powerhouse Colt Cabana, indie darling Claudio Castagnoli and even the evil tyrant of Chikara Pro, Ultramantis Black.
Here’s a promo video Gethard recently made imaging Nature Boy Ric Flair peddling real estate in Manayunk:
If there’s anything greater than comedians making fun of something, it’s comedians paying homage to something they love… although you may want to make sure your insurance is paid up.
