The PHILLY IMPROV THEATER is hitting the final stretch of December shows at the Shubin, and tonight features their shows Improv PhD and CAGEMATCH.
IMPROV PHD is where PHIT welcomes a local college group and pairs them with a PHIT house team or PHIT affiliate. This evening PHIT pairs premise-based office dwellers CUBED with U Penn’s WITHOUT A NET.
CAGEMATCH features an upstart challenger squaring off against the returning champ from the previous show. The audiences watches both improv sets and votes on which is their favorite. In the arena tonight – multi-time champs ROOKIE CARD take on THE ONES YOUR MOMS WARNED YOU ABOUT, a group risen from the ashes of Troika.
