SPIKED PUNCH GRAND CHAMPIONSHIP! Plus - Polyamorous Comedian Bobby Hill on Talk Hard!
COMING UP THIS FRIDAY! IT’S THE SPIKED PUNCH GRAND CHAMPIONSHIP!
We started the summer with 42 of Chicago’s best improvisers, stand-ups, and all-around hilarious performers! Only 3 contestants have survived the comedy gauntlet we have thrown at them, and they compete this week for the chance to become the first-ever Spiked Punch Grand Champion!
We’ve had ridiculous challenges, painful tests, disgusting dares, and more! This week, we’re getting personal! To be the Spiked Punch Grand Champion, these finalists are going to have to dig deep and show us who they really are!
The Spiked Punch Grand Championship is this Friday, August 22nd at midnight at The ComedySportz Theatre (929 W. Belmont Ave., Chicago, IL).
Here are our finalists:
Padraic is one of Chicago’s most quick-witted improvisers - performing with the critically-acclaimed Whirled News Tonight at iO, the professional ensemble at ComedySportz and much more! Padraic was also a contestant on Jeopardy! last year, competing against famed contestant Arthur Chu! En route to the finals, Padraic has had to perform with his extremities soaking in ice cold water, and roast himself with a puppet. Does he have what it takes to be the Grand Champion. Only time will tell!
Erin performs as a member of The Murder Mystery Company, and can also be seen on various stages throughout Chicago, performing improv, sketch comedy, and stand-up. One of the most versatile performers in the finals, Erin isn’t afraid to get personal. She won her initial Spiked Punch appearance by giving confessions about herself while getting a great workout in with a Shakeweight. She’ll have to dig even deeper to come on top this week. And we have a feeling things are going to get messy!
Peter Kremidas is a graduate of the prestigious School at Steppenwolf, and his bold, fearless choices launched him ahead of his team and into the championship after winning our Redemption Challenge show. An ensemble member at The ComedySportz Theatre and the Laugh Out Loud Theater, Peter isn’t afraid to do what it takes to win - even if it requires him to put something gross in his mouth. He’ll have to pull out all the stops in order to best his competition this week.
Tickets to the Spiked Punch Grand Championship are just $10 and can be purchased online or by calling The ComedySportz Theatre’s Box office at 773 549-8080!
