CSz PHILADELPHIA PROUDLY PRESENTS MATT&
Philadelphia PA -- CSz Philadelphia, the Home of ComedySportz presents MATT&. Celebrating its 10-year anniversary, Matt& is an improv comedy show where Matt Holmes performs with a random stranger plucked from the audience. Called a “must-see” and a “best worst nightmare come true,” nothing is planned, it’s all made up live as you're watching it, and every performance is unique. Matt& runs Sundays in March @ 7PM. Tickets are $10.
“My partner is almost always someone who has never even seen improv before, let alone tried to do it.” says Matt Holmes. “I tell them three things: they can do and say whatever they want, it's my job to make it work, and everyone wants them to succeed. “
“If you're used to improv shows, this one might feel a little different” says CSz Philadelphia Executive Director, Don Montrey, “Not only because of the audience member's starring role, but also because it incorporates improvised musical accompaniment, improvised lighting and improvised sound effects. At CSz Philadelphia, we like to combine the spontaneity of improv with the technical planning of a theater production; Matt has done the same thing here giving the show a more theatrical and cinematic feel.”
Tickets for Matt& are $10 and can be purchased online at csztix.com or by calling 484-450-8089. The show is designed for audiences ages 15 and up.
For more information, please call Don Montrey at 484-450-8089.
