FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Company: Quiet Monkey Fight (QMF)
WITH “HALF-SKETCHED”, QMF MAKES RETURN TO SKETCH COMEDY AND DEBUTS ITS NEXT TOURING IMPROVISED SHOW
Seattle, WA, February 1, 2010 – Seattle-based Quiet Monkey Fight (QMF) has performed at comedy festivals across North America from New York to Los Angeles and from Seattle to Orlando. Most recently, the troupe performed its hit show, “Where’s My Parachute?” which was an improvised workplace-themed comedy show that won over many Seattle audiences.
QMF now announces its newest sketch and improv comedy show: “HALF-SKETCHED.” Half of the show will feature original sketch comedy created by the QMF ensemble. “We are excited about performing our new scripted comedy on-stage for the first-time since our debut at Seattle Sketchfest,” said Jed Rose, co-founder and performer of QMF. The other half of the show will be the premiere of QMF’s next touring improvised format: “King County Spelling Bee”. “Our new improvised spelling bee show is completely inspired by made-up words from the audience. It’s quite exciting and entertaining to see our performers create an entire history around the audience’s created words.” With Spelling Bee, QMF will create an original high school competition complete with colorful characters and back stories. Ultimately, the King County Spelling Bee brings the audience a completely improvised and hilarious take on the classic spelling competition everyone has heard of.
“HALF-SKETCHED” will be featured for a 5-week run from February 19th through March 19th on Saturdays at 8pm. Performances will be held and tickets will be sold at the Odd Duck Studio (1214 10th Avenue, 206-679-3271) in Seattle’s Capitol Hill neighborhood. Tickets are available starting today for only $10 per person. Please contact the theater directly regarding group bookings.
