We’re really excited for this, guys. Tonight, we unveil the first of what we hope will be a very long line of great shows — the debut of CAMP WOODS PLUS at the upstairs bar at L’Etage. CAMP WOODS PLUS, which we’ll host monthly, will feature one local sketch group, one out-of-town act, and a brand-new set from us. This month, you’ll see Philly duo Local Holiday Miracle, New York’s Murderfist, and, of course, the gorgeous rapscallions you’ve come to fear and revere, Camp Woods.
Trust us, this show is going to be great. Local Holiday Mircale is an offbeat and hilarious pair of sketch ladies who have really come into their own in the two years they’ve been together. Murderfist won the Village Voice’s ECNY Award for Best Sketch Comedy Group in New York in 2010. We saw their set at the Boston Improv Festival and they blew our skulls open.
Seriously. We’re going to say this one more time: You will not regret coming to this show.
L’Etage is located at 6th and Bainbridge Streets in Queen Village. Doors open at 8, and the show starts at 8:30. SEE YA THERE!
Join us Tuesday, November 22 for CAMP WOODS PLUS, a new monthly sketch comedy showcase. Every month will feature a hilarious ALL NEW SHOW from Camp Woods + two of the best sketch comedy groups in the country! (more…)
People of New York! Tonight (Friday, October 21, 2011, year of our Lord, for those of you who have just awaken from comas), we’ll be at UCB Chelsea for the NaSkeWriMoSkeShow. It’s a show hosted by the dudes in Wrestling Team and will feature sketches written during September’s National Sketch Writing Month. We’ll be up there to do a sketch and YOU should watch that happen! DO IT!!!!!!!!

Hello, friends. Next week, we’ll be taking part in the Philly Sketchfest alongside fantastic Philly acts like Secret Pants, The Feeko Brothers, and Hate Speech Committee and some great out-of-towners like our friends Meg Favreau (Los Angeles) and Angel Yau (New York). The Philadelphia Inquirer and Philly Weekly have both run pieces on it this week, so you know it’s gonna be hot.
On Tuesday, October 11 at 8 pm, we’ll be in Don Montrey’s Dirtiest Sketch in Philadelphia competition, in which we’ll try to unseat our very own Billy Bob Thompson and The Feeko Bros., who won last year’s contest with this. Yeah, it’s not gonna be easy. Buy tickets here.
On Friday, October 14 at 10 pm, we’ll do a half-hour set alongside The Disappointments and Pink Axe, both from New York. We’ll do some new stuff mixed in with some classics, so come on out. You can buy tickets here.
All shows are at the Shakespeare Theatre, 2111 Sansom Street. Thanks to Dave and Matt from Animosity Pierre and Ben Maher for putting this all together!
Thanks to the city of Boston and the organizers of the Boston Improv Festival (Zach Ward, et al.). We had a great time doing the comedy there.
Brace yourself for the possibility of there being a video of the performance uploaded here shortly.
This Friday, we’ll be performing at Scoogi’s in Flourtown, PA with our buds Christian Alsis, Aaron Hertzog, and Chip Chantry . It’s gonna blow your ass out of your ass, so make sure you’re there.

First off, thanks to everyone who came out to our shows at the Shubin Theatre last weekend. It was our best show yet and you guys were awesome, collectively, as a crowd. For those of you who weren’t there: 1) SHAME ON YOU and 2) we’ll post videos from the show over the next couple weeks. Also: thanks to Angel Yau for coming down from New York to open up for us. She’s really funny — check her out.
Now, we’ve got a couple of things on tap in the coming weeks. On August 16, we’ll be doing a 20-minute set at The Little Bar on 8th Street in South Philly. Stay tuned for details on that.
On August 26, we’ll be hosting a night of comedy at Scoogi’s in Flourtown, PA. We’ll be joined by funny friends Christian Alsis, Aaron Hertzog, and Chip Chantry. Scoogi’s is only about a 30-minute drive from Center City and is also conveniently located minutes from the Chestnut Hill train stops, so do come! Cover is $10, and the show begins at 9:30.
After that, we go northward to perform in the Boston Improv Festival. ALL RIGHT OK.
Billy Bob Thompson and Rob Baniewicz are in Camp Woods now. Does that excite you?
Cause it should. We will be debuting our brand-new lineup THIS THURSDAY at the Walnut Street Theatre as part of the first-ever F. Harold Festival. Show starts at 8, and admission is $10.
Get excited. Are you excited yet? EXCITEMENT!!!!
Hey! We’ve got lots of shows coming up! To wit:
This Friday, May 13, we’ll be at the Get Offended Variety Show at Connie’s Ric Rac. The show promises offensive stand-up, offensive sketches, and offensive song parodies, so if that’s your thing, be sure to come out. The show starts at 8 pm, and Connie’s Ric Rac is in the Italian Market, 1132 South 9th Street (just south of Washington Avenue). Tickets are $10 in advance and $15 at the door.
On Sunday, May 22, we’ll return to Connie’s Ric Rac for the last Bedtime Stories ever. The show’s host, our good friend Gregg Gethard, is hanging up his hosting-boots to pursue other comedy ventures. Gregg was a big early supporter of ours, and Bedtime Stories is one of the first shows in which we performed, so we’re honored to give it a proper farewell. Tickets are $10 and the show starts at 8 pm.
Lastly, we’ll be performing in the first-ever F. Harold Festival at the Walnut Street Theatre, which runs June 7-12. Dates, times, and ticket info are TBA, but it’s shaping up to be an extremely fun festival, so stay tuned.
Is that enough to keep us occupied over the next few weeks? ROB BANIEWICZSAYS YES.
Hey! It’s been a few weeks since we updated, so here is what’s happening in our universe:
First, Philly comedy blogger Joe Moore, who is a good and great man, recently interviewed us for a new WitOut feature called PIZZA PALS. Basically, Joe bought us pizza, and we ate with him while he asked us questions about pizza and comedy, but mostly just pizza. While you’re there, check out this very nice review of one of Meg & Rob‘s final shows, which we opened. Really, you should just poke around the entirety of WitOut; it’s a fantastic blog and pretty much the only place to find out what’s going on in the Philadelphia comedy community.
FURTHERMORE: We’ll be performing next Tuesday, April 26, at the Barbary‘sComedyDreamz. We played there last August and had a great time and we’re excited to go back and do it again. For those not in the know, the Barbary is at 951 Frankford Ave., in the NoLibs/Fishtown section of Philly. Admission is $5; show begins at 8 p.m.
