Posh Britons call 911, Divorce Alien Style, the true story behind Poe’s Poem Annabel Lee, and more. Starting February 20, BIG will present three weekends of Sketch Comedy. While BIG has done a few short sketch runs in the past, this will be our biggest run by far. Six performances featuring almost half of our performers involved as writers, directors, and/or actors. Proving, once and for all, that Improvisers are at least functionally literate.
The first act of the show will feature Gentlemen’s Hour, a group of men and women who have been schooling Baltimoreans on how to up their manliness for over a year. The project has a regular performance the first Thursday of each month at the Mercury. This will be their first extended run featuring new and best of sketches as well as training one audience member per night in the gently art of the Manly.
The second act will feature varying combinations of 11 sketches from the rest of BIG. Why come see the sketches? They are hilarious. They have never been seen before. There is gratuitous use of the term “Crumpet Drawers.” There is at least one topless scene (featuring a man and a dim light) . And, since sketches allow actually using props, there will not be a single person stirring a mixing bowl for no reason, using their thumb and pinkie as a phone, or shooting someone with their index finger.
Scripted: BIG’s Sketch Show. Every Friday and Saturday at 830pm from February 20-March 7. Hope to see there, Crumpet Drawers.
