The Comedy Pigs Return for 23rd Season

The Maryland-based comedy troupe promises a 28-show season of improv and sketches.

FREDERICK, MD.: The Comedy Pigs, Maryland Ensemble Theatre’s (MET) in-house improv troupe, have announced their 23rd season of short-form improvisation and sketch shows. Promising a year of “gut-wrenching fun,” the Pigs will begin their 28-show season with a pair of back-to-back, late-night shows following MET’s production of One Man, Two Guvnors on Sept. 25th and 26th.

Further Pigs shows are slated to follow productions of The Gifts of the Magi, Tribes, Oedipus Rex, and Superior Donuts. A complete list of performances, along with box-office information, can be found here.

Since their debut in 1993, the 10-person comedy troupe has performed in more than 500 shows, including national festivals, and their 1995 music-video parody “Wiener Dog” was featured on Comedy Central.
