CSz PHILADELPHIA PROUDLY PRESENTS TWO-MAN, ONE-MAN
Philadelphia PA -- CSz Philadelphia, the Home of ComedySportz presents TWO-MAN, ONE-MAN. This new comedy, fresh off a smashingly successful Philly Fringe Festival run, spoofs the millennial narrative, privileged white artists, and the phenomenon of the one-man show. TWO-MAN, ONE-MAN runs March 16, 23 and 30 @ 8PM. Tickets are $15.
TWO-MAN, ONE-MAN is (technically) a three-man show—about two one-man shows—being performed as a two-man show. Meet Arnold—a self-proclaimed “tortured” performance artist who believes he is the straight-white-male hero to save modern society—and Miles, a lowbrow, lovelorn stand-up comedian who doesn’t take anything seriously, including his act. These men are set to perform their respective one-man shows, but due to a scheduling error, they must share the same stage at the same time. With another show slated at the top of the hour and a stage manager on their asses, Arnold and Miles must compete for the spotlight or agree to share it. Will they work together? Will they kill each other? Will they somehow teach each other lifelong lessons about art, sense of self, and collaboration in just under an hour? Probably not, but maybe!
Tickets for TWO-MAN, ONE-MAN are $15 and can be purchased online at csztix.com or by calling 484-450-8089.
For more information, please call Don Montrey at 484-450-8089.
