THE COMEDY PIGS ARE 

LOOKING TO EXPAND THE FAMILY

 

The Comedy Pigs, Frederick area's premier and longest-running short form improv troupe will be auditioning new members on May 18th.  Now in their twenty-first season, The Comedy Pigs are easily one of the most established improv and sketch groups in the entire Mid-Atlantic region.  The Comedy Pigs made their mark early as the troupe had been together just two years when in 1995 Comedy Central picked up their music video "Wiener Dog"- a parody of The Beatles song "Blackbird". Since then, the Pigs have written hundreds of sketches and songs, played over 500 performances, and have had over 40 people call themselves "Pigs."  

 

So if you have some improv experience, want to join a troupe with more collective experience that you can shake two sticks at, can commit to rehearsals every Wednesday, and an average of four evening or late night shows a month (nearly all on Friday and Saturday), then bring your headshot and resume to the Maryland Ensemble Theatre on May 18th at 2pm, and expect to be there until5pm.  Prospective Pigs should dress in comfortable clothes and be prepared to move.  The primary audition will consist of playing a series of short-form improv games with various members of the Pigs.  Omniscience is not required as they will teach auditionees the games.  Call-backs will be on the followingWednesday, May 21st, starting at 8pm at the Maryland Ensemble Theater. If you get called back, you will also be asked to submit an original sketch on the 21st.  You should expect to be at the call-back until 10pm.  Questions can be emailed to thecomedypigs@gmail.com.  For more information on The Comedy Pigs visit comedypigs.org or marylandensemble.org.
