It's time again for the Philly Improv Theater's week at the Shubin Theatre (407 Bainbridge St). The week actually kicked off Monday with our show (we'll have photos and video later this week), but the meat of the week is still yet to come.
This week marks the debut of three new PHIT house teams. They're so new that we don't even have the names yet, they'll be announced at the shows.
Wednesday, October 8
8 p.m. – Bedtime Stories: Nerds, $10. The topic for this monthly sketch, video, etc. extravaganza are the socially inept, awkward, weird...nerds. Hey, what's nerdier than writing a bunch of comedy sketches? We aren't sure. Hosted by Gregg Gethard.
