Wheelhouse of Spectacular Wow Times: A Variety Show
The fine folks at the Institution Theater offer improv classes to help budding comedic actors hone their skills, and they also present off-beat theater and comedy shows on a regular basis. One of their latest is Wheelhouse of Spectacular Wow Times, a variety show hosted by John Buseman and Christine Giordano. Adopting the persona of a pair of “enthusiastic simpletons,” Buseman and Giordano hold court every Friday night in January, presenting a variety of comedic and musical acts.
The idea for the show came from the hosts’ desire to provide a venue for their talented friends and acquaintances to perform acts that might not find another outlet. That means comedians breaking away from their usual standup routines to explore character work, funny people performing bits that they’ve previously just done for friends, and generally speaking, a fun evening for everyone involved.
Every show features special guest stars and culminates in a show-ending battle for comedic supremacy.
Friday, January 20 and 27 at 8:00 p.m.
