Late Nite Spam-O-Rama And The Pork Filled Players

Wednesday, January 14, 2009

Got this passed to my inbox and sounds like it should be pretty cool:

The Pork Filled Players (PFP), Seattle's oldest sketch comedy group, unveils Late Nite Spam-O-Rama, a monthly late night comedy/live music cabaret, which debuts January 24, Saturday, at 10 pm at the Theatre Off Jackson (409 7th Ave S. in Seattle's International District).

Joining the Players in the inaugural Spam-O-Rama are the Entertainment Show, regular denizens of the People's Republic of Komedy, and special musical guest star, the Dana Sweeney Trio (jazz ensemble with Dana Sweeney, vocals, Dave Anderson, sax, Owen Yen, guitar).

"The I-District and Seattle's Asian American artists have a long history of late night entertainment," says Roger Tang, producer for PFP. "Shows like NWAAT's 11:07 and Hypnotica have long presented the best in comedy, dance and drama. The Pork Filled Players intend to bring this tradition into the 21st Century and beyond."

"PFP plans, each month, to present the best in late night sketch comedy and live music. We've got contacts not only with the top sketch groups in Seattle, but in Vancouver, Canada and across the continent."

Veteran Players Brian Beckley, Maggie Lee, Owen Yen and Yvette Zaepfel welcome Matt Dela Cruz, Laura West and Jon Peck to the monthly madness.

The January Late Nite Spam-O-Rama follows the Cody Rivers Show at the Theatre Off Jackson. Tickets are $6 general, $5 if also seeing the Cody Rivers Show
