Philly Improv Theater is very excited to announce our plans for the longest comedy marathon in Philadelphia history next month as part of the City Spotlight series in Comedy Month. The Black Friday Comedy Marathon will start at 10:00 a.m. on Friday, November 28th (just as those door-buster sales at the big box stores are ending) and continue without interruption until 10:00 p.m. on Saturday, November 29th. The entire 36-hours will be hosted by indie comedy darlings Hey, We’re Cool! and will feature improv, sketch, stand-up, storytelling, and variety comedy acts from across the vibrant Philly comedy community and around the country. Acts can submit now by visiting the marathon website at http://www.blackfridaycomedymarathon.com. There is no cost to acts or individual performers to submit or participate.
We’re also proud to announce that PHIT will work with Center City small businesses as part of the marathon to offer free admission to audience members who shop at a partner business beginning the Monday of Thanksgiving week (11/24) through Small Business Saturday (11/29). Small businesses should also visit BFCM 2014 Website for information on how to become part of this effort by PHIT to support efforts to buy local during the busy holiday shopping season. Once again, there is no cost to local small businesses to participate in the free admission promotion.
Now go circle those dates on your calendar and start letting us know you want to be involved!
