Assembling at random to compete in a live comedy game show, Bobby Lang, Julia Hudson, Maura Pennington, Erik Sojka, and Brian Craig formed Sweetish in Philadelphia in 2014. Realizing a shared love for puppets, puns, and fine Italian dining, they began meeting weekly to eat dinner, exchange ‘hot goss’, and occasionally get around to writing comedy. After bonding over meals for two years, Sweetish entered the “long distance relationship” phase when Maura and Bobby were each accepted to separate grad schools on the opposite side of the country. Rather than break up a good thing, Sweetish embraced technology, having Skype writing sessions and integrating interactive videos into their live stage shows. They perform monthly in and around Philadelphia, and have appeared on stages along the east coast, including Philly Sketchfest and Charm City Comedy Festival in Baltimore.
Also, they totally won that game show.
