House of Solitude
House of Solitude is the sketch comedy due of Daniel Corkery & Caitlin Weigel. Based out of Philadelphia, PA the group celebrated a successful run of their first live show, 'Together Forever" at Plays & Players theater. Their comedy is a dark, existential journey into the nature of romantic relationships and growing older.
Adventure Friends
Mike Butler, Shannon DeVido, and Quinton Alexander make up the members of Adventure Friends. They take improv forms and turn them into sketch formats.
Sweetish
Assembling at random to compete in a live comedy game show, Bobby Lang, Julia Hudson, Maura Pennington, Erik Sojka, and Brian Craig formed Sweetish in Philadelphia in 2014. Realizing a shared love for puppets, puns, and fine Italian dining, they began meeting weekly to eat dinner, exchange hot goss, and occasionally get around to writing comedy. After bonding over meals for two years, Sweetish entered the "long distance relationship" phase when Maura and Bobby were each accepted to separate grad schools on the opposite side of the country. Rather than break up a good thing, Sweetish embraced technology, having Skype writing sessions and integrating interactive videos into their live stage shows. They perform monthly in and around Philadelphia, and have appeared on stages along the east coast, including Philly Sketchfest and Charm City Comedy Festival in Baltimore. Also, they totally won that game show.
Friends with Names
Friends with Names is a NYC-based sketch group made up of some handsome boys and a lady whose faces have appeared in the Philadelphia Improv Theater, The Rochester Fringe, The Annoyance Theatre, The Armory, Upright Citizens Brigade, the People's Improv Theater, Magnet Theater, Adam Wade's Story-Telling Hour, and the North Carolina Comedy Arts Festival. Their words have appeared in the Hard Times, the New York Times, Above Average and regional bridal magazines. We'll let you guess who's done what.
The Prince
Jamie and Frank have been writing and performing comedy together for 7ish years only to finally assume the identity of The Prince in shows at venues all around Philadelphia including Philly Sketchfest! They make their debut outside PA this March at LaughFest in Grand Rapids, MI.
The 19th
Sketch Comedy Susan B. Anthony would be proud of. The 19th is a Philadelphia-based all women sketch team. They debuted in January 2017 at Philly Improv Theater as headliners with their show "It's Always Been You," and went on to open for The Incredible Shrinking Matt and Jacquie at Good Good Comedy. They'll also be appearing in the upcoming Bechdel Test Fest in Philadelphia.
Your Mom
Your Mom is a group of siblings ranging from middle school to college who have been performing around Philly for three years. We've been accepted into and performed at NYC Sketchfest, Philly Sketchfest, and the Black Friday Comedy Marathon.
