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.

10PM – GUILTY PLEASURES WITH BRENDAN KENNEDY
The show that takes care to select only the worst of screenplays, shorts and various written fodder, and pairs them with only the best comedic talent. Brendan has his tongue planted so firmly in cheek with this show, it’ll make your cheeks hurt too.  This month’s parts will be played by Chris Cotton, Roger C Snair, Richie Redding and Sidney Gantt.
