The Off-Color Theatre Company is a new voice for original comedy in Philadelphia



Something new is on the Philadelphia comedy scene and I don’t mean that the Amazing Wid has new props . A The Off-Color Theatre Companygroup of brave comedy pioneers have decided to settle the land at The Gershman Y Black Box at The University of the Arts  on 401 S. Broad Street on June 25th and 26th at 8pm. They are the Color-By-Numbers Sketch Group presented by the Off-Color Theater Company.

The Cast  consists of young sketchers Greg Nix, Andrew J. Tardif, Lyndsay Hart, Nick Fragale, Mark Jesse Swanson, David Schwartzbaum, Sarah Cowdery and Anya Anthony. And you know that guy with three names is awesomely funny or a presidential assassin, so either way, you’re getting a show.

The Off-Color Theater Company was founded in February of 2009 and is dedicated to bringing comedy in all forms to Philadelphia. The new show is called American Dreamsicle. Sadly, there are no YouTube clips yet, but you can get an idea of the hilarity from Off Color’s previous show, Bailout.

80’s references hipsters. They are like comedy crack to you. Don’t worry, I won’t tell anyone its cool, so you can still go. Just smoke those crappy cigarettes you like outside and no, I don’t want a PBR. Look, you’re an Internet meme now, so I don’t have to put up with your crap anymore. Just buy a ticket to this show and like it. You’ll find some irony in it somewhere.
