Who’s up for a Gross holiday?

05/30/2011

We’re facing some record high temperatures this holiday weekend. Folks are out and about, enjoying block parties, barbeques and other celebrations. For those looking for a little break from the heat and want to end their long weekend with perhaps a bit of disturbed laughter, the PHILLY IMPROV THEATER aims to cure what ails you with it’s raucous and unruly GROSS SHOW.

Readers are likely already familiar with host ALEX GROSS and his unbelievably debasing assortment of talk show guests. In the last show alone we saw a bevy of sexed up Disney princesses, a trio of passionate rapists and a frightening collection of other misfit characters. Rumor has it tonight’s show will feature the always hilarious Roger C. Snair as well as the riotous Fastball Pitcher Bob Gutierrez, amongst other surprises. So head on out and leave at least a little uncomfortable.

FASTBALL PITCHER BOB GUTIERREZ

MONDAY, MAY 30 @ 8PM

Video Sneak Peek: The Gross Show

03/21/2011

Many of you might already be familiar with THE GROSS SHOW… one the newest and more lively additions to the PHILLY IMPROV THEATER‘s roster of recurring shows. For those still unacquainted, the live show takes aim at the most odd, extreme or unbelievable among our species with a Jerry Springer-esque slant. Host ALEX GROSS brings audiences into a world where taboo is typical and relationships have a bit of an edge to them. The show garnered so much attention in it’s first few runnings – the antics raised to such levels – that it had to be given a new night.  I think those that have seen it would agree that words somehow fail in adequately trying to explain this show to you. So instead, enjoy this little reel of moments past:

 

You can catch THE GROSS SHOW Tuesday, March 29th at 8:30PM. More info
