The Dog Show

 

 Dog Show Comedy (New York, NY) presents:

The Dog Show

Weds May 9 6:45pm, Thurs May 11 9:15pm, Sat May 12 7pm

 


THE DOG SHOW is a new breed of sketch comedy. Sometimes subtle, often outrageous comedy sketches that parody, spoof, pastiche, and lay utter waste to topics ranging from world history, pop culture, surrealism, and good ol’ Americana. A New Jersey native comedy quartet that has made good use of their (very expensive) college educations, The Dogs will be bringing their hour-long sketch comedy revue, WASTE OF A GOOD PUN to the Second Annual Tampa International Fringe Festival.

If you’re looking for a good clean laugh, or to learn more about yourself through a heart-warming tale of overcoming adversity, this is (probably) not the show for you. But as long as you’re here, make yourself comfortable and enjoy the only show bold enough to call itself THE DOG SHOW without actually having any dogs whatsoever.

THE DOG SHOW presents WASTE OF A GOOD PUN. Written and performed by Mike Patierno,
Claudio Venancio, Peter Coleman, and Ryan Correll. For more information, follow The Dogs on Facebook at facebook.com/DogShowComedy

This Show is Meshuga!

Zazu Productions (Largo, FL) presents:

This Show is Meshuga!

Thurs May 3 8pm, Sat May 5 9:15pm,  Sun May 6 4:45pm,

Weds May 9 9:45pm, Thurs May 10 8:45pm, Sat May 12 5:45pm


What do you call the neurotic actress and Bubbie (grandma in Yiddish), with a constant need to improvise and challenge herself?   Meshuga!.. This is a solo performance improv show…stuff will happen…come along for the ride…wacky…serious.. surprising…shtick…not schlock…you…me…your friends…strangers…who…what?

This crazy show is an improvised solo performance adventure…with audience interaction–every show unique, a mish-mash stuffed with quirky characters that take hasty shape before your very eyes.  Anything could happen, but something happening is guaranteed!

The only person in this show is Francine Wolf.   For those of you who have seen her in Columbus Playback Theatre, BAIT improv, Stuff Happens Improv Theatre or in other live theatre performances, (most recently at Just for Laughs Dinner Theatre in “Sex Please, We’re Sixty,”) you can blame her entirely for this one—she’s probably just having some senior moments.

Wolf was directed by the award-winning improv instructor and founding member of Florida Studio Theatre’s long-running  improv troupe, FST Improv, Christine Alexander.

Solo Improv Comedy – 45 Min
Tickets: $8 (+$3 festival support fee)
