Final show for Men About Town this Thursday

04/29/2009

This Thursday MEN ABOUT TOWN will take the stage for the last time:

Join Corey, Alli and Matt as we bid farewell to nearly four years of shows with an evening of special guests and one final performance.

Throughout our run, we’ve been incredibly fortunate to play some amazing venues and events, including many shows at the Philly Improv Theater, CAGEMATCH, off-Broadway at the NYC Sketch-a-thon, the Philadelphia Improv Festival, the Philadelphia Fringe Festival, the Dirty South Improv Festival, the North Carolina Comedy Arts Festival, the Del Close Marathon and at the historic Trocadero Theatre. To the many who have invited us on to their stages, we thank you. It’s been a blast.

We’d like to send a special thanks to all those who have come out to support our shows through the years. We invite you to come laugh with us one more time. You bring the movie line and we’ll bring the madness.

Special guests will include TWO GUIDOS & TRAFFIC JELLY. Be sure to come on out and say goodbye!
