Arcade Comedy Theater Grand Opening - Friday 8pm
THIS EVENT IS SOLD OUT... BUT THERE'S 3 OTHER SHOWS YOU CAN COME TO INSTEAD:
Arcade has three more variety shows planned throughout the weekend, each with different acts: there's a 10pm show immediately following this one, and then an 8pm and 10pm Saturday show. We hope to see you there!
Arcade Comedy Theater, downtown Pittsburgh's newest theater company and
premiere destination dedicated to all things comedy, makes its debut with a variety show packed with talent from across the city.
The 8pm Friday show will begin with a ribbon cutting ceremony and unique live performance by "Pittsburgh Dad" himself, Curt Wootton. Wootton, along with series co-creator Chris Preksta, are responsible for the Pittsburgh YouTube sensation, which has reached millions of online viewers across the world. Most recently the pair was appointed grand marshal of the Highmark First Night parade, so "Dad" is no stranger to the downtown Cultural District.
The show will also feature sketch comedy by Frankly Scarlett, the city's only all-female sketch troupe; music by pop song comedy duo Bait and Switch; and a vaudevillian routine by the world champion yo-yo master Mark Hayward.
The show also features the debut of Player One, Arcade Comedy Theater's own in-house improv troupe. Player One is comprised of both experienced improvisers from both the Second City Touring Company and iO West, as well local veterans from various troupes and venues across Pittsburgh, including Friday Nite Improvs and The Pittsburgh Improv Jam.
