PSF 2017 – The Decoy, Dinosaur Jones and Patric Writes Sketches
April 22, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Philly Sketchfest’s (PSF) goal is to entertain audiences, support the growth of Philadelphia’s comedy community, and celebrate national and international sketch groups with unique shows, performers, and panels.
416 Green St, Philadelphia, PA 19123
The Decoy is a house sketch team at the Philly Improv Theater. They strive to both write and perform emotionally honest sketches that are relatable and that punch up. Their short vignettes make you think, feel, ponder, deliberate, notice, reflect, laugh and – just maybe – learn a little bit about this crazy world of ours.
Making their debut in August 2016, they burst onto the scene, playing to packed crowds every night of their opening run. They have since written and performed at the 2016 Black Friday Comedy Marathon, as well as two headlining shows at Philly Improv Theater (PHIT).
A Dinosaur Jones Show consists of weird, sometimes referential, sometimes topical, always life and human relationship inspired sketches; written and performed with reckless abandon and fueled by Oreos™. A Dinosaur Jones Show may even provide answers to life’s greatest mysteries. Can a couple work out their adult problems with childhood techniques? Could Simba actually see Mufasa? And, who’s a Good Boy?! All will be revealed at the commencement of our illustrious set!
Work from members of Dinosaur Jones has been featured on Adult Swim, The A.V. Club, Funny or Die, Guyism, IFC, Marvel Comics, Reductress, Jezebel, Cartoon Network, Travel Channel, and Syfy.
Dinosaur Jones is Natalie Silverman, Jessica Taylor, Becca Schall, Hayley Karl, Carly Monardo, Rich Rosario, Ben Koch, & Matt Alspaugh, and is directed by “Papa” Joe Lepore.
