Improv Comedy: WildCard!

Thursday, July 3, 2014, 7:30 PM


Philly Improv Theater presents an improv comedy show like no other! Every other Friday at 7:30 p.m. catch four acts in one hour on the PHIT stage, and the last group isn’t even chosen until the show has begun!

Hosted by Something Simple with Frank & Alex (Frank Farrell & Alex Gross), WildCard features top independent improv teams, experimental collaborations between PHIT’s top performers, and the opportunity for you to hand the hosts an idea before the show starts and perform it at the end of the night in the WildCard slot.

WildCard pitches can include anyone performing any kind of comedy. People who haven’t played together in the past are encouraged to form on-the-spot acts! Any group of potential performers can submit a pitch (with the name of their act, a one sentence description of what they’ll do, and the cast list) while they are waiting for the show to start. WildCard’s hosts review pitches after the first team takes the stage and select their favorite idea to whisk backstage for whirlwind 30 minute rehearsal before they premiere as the final act of the night.

Have an independent improv team and would like to be booked into an advance slot on the show? Email wildcard@phillyimprovtheater.com!
