The Dynamite Series @ PHIT has slowly become THE place in Philadelphia to see long-run, innovative, boundary-pushing comedy projects. From shows that connect comedy with local playwrights and college professors, to mixes of absurdist theater and improv, to shows that boast multi-generational casts, these projects showcase amazing talent in amazing shows. The newest addition to the Series is no exception.
Philly Improv Theater is proud to welcome Matt Holmes and his nationally renown show Matt& to our stage as part of the Dynamite Series. Matt& showcases Matt’s comedic brilliance as he welcomes a random audience member who has never performed improv before on stage with him to put on a fully improvised show. These shows are a favorite for audiences and performers alike, and are guaranteed to be an impressive addition to an already stellar line up.
Ralph Andracchio, PHIT’s Artistic Director and curator of the Dynamite Series is excited about Matt&’s inclusion. “With the addition of Matt&, the Dynamite Series continues its reputation of bringing boundary-pushing, innovative comedy shows to Philly. I’m looking forward to working with Matt to give his show a home where he can explore and grow on a professional stage.”
Matt is also excited about this new chapter. “It’s great to have this partnership with PHIT for these shows in September and the first Thursday of each month. The audiences at their new space have been wonderfully enthusiastic, and I can’t wait to play with them.
I’ve taken Matt& on tour around the country for the past five years, but I’m really excited about doing a Philly show every month.
I think people will really have a blast seeing somebody they brought to the show on stage.”
Matt& will debut as a part of the Dynamite Series with a run of shows September 11, 12, 18, and 19. All shows are at 7:30pm. The show will settle into a permanent slot Thursdays at 7:30pm in October. Tickets are available online.
