Comedy Pigs to Present New Sketch Show at Maryland Ensemble Theatre, Begin. 1/24
The Comedy Pigs, Maryland Ensemble Theatre's (MET) hilarious improv troupe are back in 2014 with a shiny new primetime sketch show! It's a brand new year with the same old problems: Find a job, pay your bills, make time to give a little back, and try not to do irreparable emotional damage to the ones you love - or would like to love. The Comedy Pigs feel your pain, and then twist it to their own fiendish but entirely entertainment-based purposes.
Just some of the eternal questions that the Comedy Pigs will tackle in their new sketch show include; What makes a good librarian? Does Superman have a green card? Is there disco after death? And they'll explore the ultimate cure for carpal tunnel syndrome.
The shows will be January 24, 25, 31 and February 1 at 8pm at Maryland Ensemble Theatre (31 W Patrick St.), located downtown in the historic FSK Hotel. Tickets are $12.00 (plus a $1.50 processing fee) and may be purchased online at marylandensemble.org, by phone at (301) 694-4744 or in person at the MET box office.
Spend the evening with the Pig's current cast of Tres Dillon, Giovanni Kavota, Courtney McLaughlin, C-Mo Molloy, Anne Raugh, Thomas Scholtes, Jeff Schorr, Laura Stark, and JuLia Williams to find out what the way you hold your coffee cup says about you; learn what scourge has arisen to replace bullying in the ever-lengthening list of society's ills; and see the tragic results of promiscuous royal snogging.
Since the Comedy Pigs debuted in 1993, they have performed over 500 shows including nationwide improv festivals, have been featured on Comedy Central and have been guests at the National Pork Producers Convention. This is their 21st season, for more upcoming dates and information visit marylandensemble.org or comedypoigs.org.
