The Perch Reunion w/ Reformed Whores and The Jon Twitcherman Sketch Program

Sep 28 , 2018 · DUKE ENERGY THEATER at Spirit Square

Presented by: Blumenthal Performing Arts, The Comedy Zone, Queen City Comedy

Part of The Queen City Comedy Experience.


For years The Perch kept Charlotte entertained with the best sketch comedy on the east coast.  The Queen City comedy institution is coming back for one night!  And they are bringing with them two world class comedy acts.

 

The Perch

Established in 1994, The Perch was a staple of the Charlotte comedy scene, until they disbanded in 2003. Alumni have gone on to become comedians, producers, and comedy writers for television shows such as Conan O’Brien, Portlandia, Arrested Development, Drunk History, & MTV. With the exception of a few small reunion shows, The Perch hasn’t been seen or heard from in almost 15 years. Until now. The 4th greatest comedy group of all time is returning home!”

The Reformed Whores

 

If Dolly Parton & Flight of the Conchords got drunk and had a baby, you'd get the irreverent musical comedy duo Reformed Whores! These ladies have headlined comedy clubs and toured the country opening for musicians like "Weird Al" Yankovic and Les Claypool and have been featured on IFC, PBS, CBS and SiriusXM to name a few. www.reformedwhores.com

 

The Jon Twitcherman Sketch Program

The Jon Twitcherman Sketch Program is the world's only live-streaming sketch comedy show on Twitch. Every month we perform live comedy that varies from the absurd to political to the even more absurd. Featuring members from the New York City-based sketch comedy group Murderfist, we have been performing comedy for over a decade now, and can't wait to make our Charlotte debut!


The funniest acts from around the corner and across the country are coming together for one hilarious weekend. The Queen City Comedy Experience is more than just a festival -- it's three days chock-full of audience participation, sidesplitting stand-up, wacky improv and much, much more. If you're expecting the jokes your dad cracks on every family trip, buckle up. This is going to be one wild ride.
