Bobble Head Nite this Weekend! BC Times Coverage

The Cellar Dwellers' giant sketch comedy show, Bobble Head Nite in 3D, is just a day away. It's going to be your first chance in over a year to catch the Dwellers doing a full sketch show, and it'll also be the first time you can see a show involving every current member of the troupe! It's going to be huge.

Better yet, the Dwellers are set to revolutionize live theater with the unveiling of their brand new 3D technology. Everyone in attendance will get a pair of 3D glasses so that they can fully enjoy this new form of sketch comedy... something that the Dwellers have developed over the past 13 years!

You can read all about the show in today's issue of the Beaver County Times, as well as!

Serious Sketch Comedy This Saturday!

It's been well over a year since the Cellar Dwellers graced the stage with the scripted word. The troupe was built on the foundations of hilarious sketch comedy, and next Saturday they'll be returning to their roots! The Cellar Dwellers are special guests in the Serious Comedy Show at the CLO Cabaret Theater in Pittsburgh.

This long-running show features Pittsburgh comedy troupes Hustlebot, Irony City, and the Hodgepodge Society. This Saturday, February 27th, the Cellar Dwellers will be joining these folks for an evening. The Dwellers will be presenting a 20-minute set of sketch comedy. It's going to be a great showcase of Pittsburgh comedy!

The show is at the CLO Cabaret, in the same building as the O'Reilly Theater in Pittsburgh's Cultural District--you may have seen Forever Plaid there. The show starts at 10:00pm, and admission is just $5 (unless you've been to another show in the district that night, then it's free!) Don't miss this chance to see the Dwellers doing some hilarious sketch comedy along with performances from three awesome Pittsburgh comedy troupes!

The James is Moving Away Show

It's been a while since we've written anything on this blog, but big news calls for extreme measures. This Friday, January 22nd, 2010, will be a very special performance of our weekly FN'Improv show: It's James's farewell.

Jimmy has been with the Dwellers for almost a decade, but the time has come for him to move away (Cleveland, to be specific). You'll hopefully still catch him at a show from time to time, but for the most part this is it. He has left an incredible mark in this troupe, writing and contributing to some of the Dwellers' best sketches, and honing his improvisation skills with extreme professionalism. He's also really good at hosting "Talk Show."

So this Friday, we'll be having a special going-away show. There will be an assortment of guest performers, including musical duo Uke Skywalker & Tuba Fett. We'll have some food. There'll be some surprises we're keeping close to the vest. It's going to be a great show, and we hope you'll attend.

Check out FN'Improv this Friday, Jan. 22 at 10:00pm on the third floor of the Beaver Valley Bowl in Rochester, PA.

Kicking Off the Summer with FN'Improv

So in case you haven't heard, FN'Improv is getting ready to kick off summer in style! Our weekly improv show has gone through some changes in the past year, and one big thing we've done is welcome more special guests to the stage. This June, the Cellar Dwellers are rocking three consecutive weeks of guest performers!

Friday, June 12th the Dwellers are featuring the Pittsburgh-based improv troupe Irony City. If you've been to the CLO Late-Nite Cabaret, or Club Cafe, you may have caught this short-form improv troupe. Now you can see them perform live at FN'Improv along with the Dwellers!

Friday, June 19th, Bait & Switch is making a triumphant return to the BV Bowl! It's been a while since this awesome musical duo has appeared at FN'I, and we're psyched to have them back. If you haven't caught them at FN'I before, you won't want to miss them this time.

Friday, June 26th the Dwellers welcome Jeff DeSantis and the Troubled Saints! This is the first time they will be performing at the Beaver Valley Bowl, and the first time we've ever welcomed a full band to the theater! It's going to be an excellent evening.

The Cellar Dwellers perform FN'Improv every Friday night from 10:00pm until 11:30pm(ish) on the third floor of the Beaver Valley Bowl in Rochester. Admission is $3. Just $3. I mean, that's cheaper than a movie, cheaper than driving to Pittsburgh, and certainly cheaper than going to a bar (besides, you can always do that after the show).

Psst... Free Chicken...

Hey, you're planning on checking out the Cellar Dweller show at Geneva tomorrow, right?

Oh yea! I read about that in the paper.

Yeah, that was a great write-up.

It was! Nice pictures, too... What's the segway scooter skit about?

You'll see... Anyways, I wanted to tell you about getting free chicken.


Yeah! Chick-fil-A, at the Beaver Valley Mall, gave the Cellar Dwellers coupons to give to anyone who comes to the show. So you come to the show, you get a coupon for 3 totally free chicken strips at the mall.

Three chicken strips! Holy moly, that could feed a small family!

Correct, sir! And if you think about it, that's like $3 off admission.

Can I see the show now?

Um... you have to wait until Friday night.

But I want to see the show and then get chicken!

You have to wait!

Prez Dispenser

Hey did you hear about the new Cellar Dwellers sketch comedy show?


Well now! Let me just tell you that this is the first sketch show these guys have done in over a year!

A year? Sheesh, what have they been doing?

Hey, they've been busy with an On Demand television series! And they've been performing improv shows all over Western PA.

Alright, I get it... what about this show?

Right. The show's call Prez Dispenser. It's freakin' funny.

Well the poster is funny... are there people dressed like PEZ dispensers in the show?

Um, no. But the show does feature a series of great sketches about two candidates running for president. There's also skits about a freelance haz-mat worker, David Mamet-esque segway scooter salesmen, and beer cannovators.

Cannovators? What the heck is that?

You'll have to come to the show to find out! The show is almost two hours of original sketch comedy and theater improv scenes!

The show has improv too? That's cool!

You bet it is! And you've got four chances to see it!

Four! Maybe I'll go to all of them!

You can check out the show this Friday (Oct 17) at Geneva College's Bagpiper Theater, next Friday (Oct 24) at the Blue Violet Cafe in Rochester, next Sunday (Oct 26) at the Blue Violet...

A Sunday night show! That's awesome, but I hope it doesn't interfere with the Steelers.

Don't worry, all three Beaver County shows start at 8pm! So the Steelers will be done by the time the show starts.

Nice. Wait--I thought you said there were four shows?

Yes, the fourth show is a special post-election performance in Pittsburgh! It's on Saturday, November 8th at ModernFormations. That show starts at 9pm!

Wow, there's so many chances for me to catch this show. It'd be a real shame if I didn't see it!

Darn skippy.

Thanks! I'll see ya at one of the shows.

Awesome! And if you need more info, check out our website:

Oh, and what's this show rated?


Like always!
