Political Subversities to Record 10/8 Performance at Renovated Joe’s Pub

Political Subversities to Record October 8th Performance at Renovated Joe's Pub for Live Album featuring "Best Of Political Subversities"

Political Subversities continues its open run every Saturday at 9:30PM at The People's Improv Theater and welcomes new cast member, BGOODMAN.

Featured on Huffington Post, Gawker and Bust Magazine, Political Subversities is a darkly funny cabaret that finds the humorous, the stupid and the downright absurd in today's social and political landscape in the form of side-splitting sketches, fast and funny monologues and Broadway-worthy songs. Political Subversities seamlessly presents more than 40 sketches and songs in under an hour. With fresh material every week, the show is always riding The Edge of the political and cultural moment. It is initially conceived by Tony Nominee and Obie Award winner Elizabeth Swados, and currently written by a cast of actors, writers, singers and sketch comedians.

On October 8th the popular group will return to Joe's Pub at 9:30PM after a sold-out performance at the same venue in 2010 and an open run at The People's Improv Theater. The evening will be recorded for the purposes of a live album and will feature audiences' favorite material from the past 2 years. Tickets are $15, $12 at door for students with valid college ID.

"It almost seems unfair that this massive group seems to be hogging all of the funniest, smartest, best-looking performers with incredible voices...ambitious, talented and hilarious. I can't wait to see what they do next." -Grace Evans, Bust Magazine Blog

Elizabeth Swados (Tony Nominee, Obie Winner) initially conceived the show. She states, "This crew of Political Subversities is a combination of goofy, edgy, nasty, and bighearted. It's political theater you won't see anywhere else. It is intelligent and has a sensibility that has been developed for almost four years. Enjoy and be offended."

"Aun para quienes el inglés no es su primer, Political Subversities es un espectáculo iluminador, súper entretenido y que los pondrá al día con las más recientes discusiones sobre política, farándula y cultura en cerca de un hora colmada de carcajadas."- Cristina del Mar Quiles, NotiCel

The show continues to play The People's Improv Theater at its NEW location at 123 E. 24th Street between Park and Lexington.
