Tonight: SFIT Fun-draiser for Amie & Kristen Show

02/11/2011

In the short time since its inception, the ladies of the AMIE & KRISTEN SHOW have garnered a nice little following and high praise for their organic, rooted-in-the-now playing style. After cutting their teeth playing around the East Coast, AMIE ROE and KRISTEN SCHIER are now westbound… for the SEATTLE FESTIVAL OF IMPROVISED THEATER (SFIT).

To offset some of the heavy cost burdens associated with doing a trans-continental journey for a comedy show, they are having a fundraiser show tonight at the ACTORS CENTER in Old City. They will be joined by improv friends MEDIC and IRON LUNG for a few hours of laughs, from which the proceeds will appreciatively help them “not be broke.”

L to R: Amie Roe, Kristen Schier

I had a chance to chat with the ladies about tonight’s fundraiser and their impending trip.

PHILLYIMPROV: With both A&KS and MattAnd performing at SFIT, this is the first time Philadelphia has been represented there. What are you looking forward to?

AMIE ROE: Wearing flannel shirts and listening to grunge! They still do that there, right?

KRISTEN SCHIER: We’re proud to be a selection… Mostly looking forward to going to the fest for the first time. I know only a few of the acts, and if they are any indication the festival will be a lot to watch and learn from.

PI: What about your show are you most excited to share with audiences?

KS: I am excited to share knowledge about the talented Philly scene…

AR: …bring a tiny piece of the amazing improv and comedy scene that’s developing here in Philadelphia to another city.  It’s an honor whenever you’re selected to appear in any festival, and a real privilege to be an ambassador for Philly comedy.

KS: And have a blast doing our girlish romp of a show!

PI: Anything you can share about tonight’s show?

KS: (Tonight) is about being thankful for anyone who is willing to come and see our show… Any money we raise will be received with much graditude.

AR: We’re going to look really hot.  I’ve been running a bunch and exfoliating… plus I got a hair cut two weeks ago, and I know my girl Kristen has been rocking the WiiFit.

KS: It’s about showing of some of Philly’s newest improv acts.

AR: We’ll be joined on stage by Medic, a collection of some of the most talented PHIT house team members, and Iron Lung, a brand new team that formed out of a PHIT level 201 class that I just taught.

KS: Iron Lung and Medic will be fantabulous!

The Amie & Kristen Show (Fantabulous) Fun-draiser Show begins tonight (2/11) at 10PM at the Actors Center, 257 N Third St. Tickets are $10 at the door. Additional information available here.
