SHOW: Cart Before The Horse
GENRE: Sketch Comedy
GROUP: Philly Improv Theater (PHIT)
ATTENDED: Sept. 6, 10:30 pm, Adrienne Theater]
CLOSES: Sept. 8
BRIEF SELF-DESCRIPTION: "Philly's top sketch comedy talent and a cast of the city's best comedians bring you their signature darkly comic — yet strangely sweet — take on everything from the obvious targets to the bizarre tangents in our everyday life."
WE THINK: PHIT takes aim at dummies everywhere in Cart Before the Horse. With the addition of video and props this immersive sketch show takes you to the old world and back. Around here, you’ll think that all you wanted was to listen to the baseball game, but you’ll be carried away by the music to meet grown men who invested their financial future in Beanie Babies, and forgetful jailbirds that grow old making the same perfectly calibrated mistake. Don’t take their public defender’s legal advice, but come learn how to beat the heat and proper form for mountain climbing. Cart is a fun ride for anyone that appreciates poetry written in legalese.
