Friday, October 23rd – 9pm / Tix – $10 Advance & $12 Door
Dog Mountain closes out their latest show, ‘No Cussin’ on the Mountain’. This run is bittersweet as it marks the final show the group will have with original member, Rob Baniewicz, who is moving New York City to pursue his dream career as an Elmo impersonator in Times Square. Okay, that’s not totally correct.
NYC Sketchfest at The PIT is this weekend and as we mentioned last week, Philadelphia will be represented by a plethora of groups. This week, musical sketch group Mean Wendy Band gets ready for their two shows at NYC Sketchfest with a local performance at Philly Improv Theater (PHIT) with musical improv duo, Cat & Vegas and the Temple of Boom. Not to be outdone, musical sketch/90’s alt-rock cover band The Flannel Chucks are also back on stage. PLUS, a brand new show from PHIT Sketch House Team Dog Mountain with guests Adventure Friends, Sweetish at The Sideshow, and an opportunity for anyone to get their material on stage at Sketch Up or Shut Up.
