The Pittsburgh Comedy Festival (PCF) presents an incredible lineup of local stand-up and improv talent throughout the night to ring in the New Year laughing! PCF helps raise awareness of Pittsburgh's comedy community and make Pittsburgh a better place to create comedy by showcasing inclusive, original work. This show includes two acts.
Well Known Strangers
One of Pittsburgh's longest running and most active improv groups, Well Known Strangers began at Steel City Improv Theater in October 2012. They have independently produced a mini-webseries "WKS Radio." several short films as part of the Pittsburgh 48-Hour Film Project, and an original theme song and music video. Well Known Strangers host "Coconut Night" (an enhanced screening of "Monty Python and the Holy Grail") and have performed a live riff on "Night of the Living Dead" at Row House Cinema. Well Known Strangers continue to perform improv in the Pittsburgh area at Arcade Comedy Theater and Unplanned Comedy. You can usually find them as the weekly hosts of the Pittsburgh Improv Jam at The Cabaret at Theater Square every Thursday, or connect with them on Facebook.
Stranded with Strangers
Stranded with Strangers is a transmedia puppet experience that blends online and offline stories to deliver a comedy show unlike any other!
The time. Present day. Our alien friends arrived on Earth from planet Brouhaha and are exploring our history, customs, and culture. Learning. Sharing their perspectives. Misinterpreting what we know to be true. Having fun along the way.
Stranded with Strangers focuses on discovering. Discovering different worlds through adventures and different cultures through their stories and our unique perspectives on them. We focus on the viewpoints of both alien monsters and humans as we explore time through past, present, future, and alternate realities.
