Shiz: Broadway Meets Sketch Comedy
January 18, 2019 - February 15, 2019
Your favorite musical theater characters find themselves smack in the middle of sketches in this Broadway-meets-comedy mash-up show, written by UCB comedians and featuring actors from the casts of your favorite shows. Imagine if the Tonys were hijacked by “SNL.” SHIZ gives classic moments from musicals an irreverent mind of their own. Watch Elphaba and Javert get thrown unexpected curveballs and belt their way out. SHIZ is a love letter to Broadway with a few notes scribbled in the margins. No parody lyrics, only parody riffs.
SHIZ returns in 2019, kicking off a run of monthly shows, featuring a core cast of powerhouse performers as well as a revolving door of popular guest stars from the Broadway community.
SHIZ is conceived by comedian Matt Gehring (“Set It Up,” “The Tick”) and songwriter/performer Shaina Taub (Old Hats, Twelfth Night at Shakespeare in the Park) and written by Gehring, Max Ash (UCB Maude Night writer), Joél Pérez, Alex Song, Mahayla Laurence, Heath Saunders and Natalie Walker (Search Party).
With special guests Ari Afsar and Courtney Daniels.
Please note that all artists and acts are subject to change at anytime.
