Brand Spanking New: Arcade Comedy Theater!

You may have heard that a new comedy theater is opening in downtown Pittsburgh.Arcade Comedy Theater will be a hub for all varieties of funny in the Burgh, from sketch, improv, and standup to music, vaudeville, and experimental comedy. I saw a juggling yo-yo guy at the “friends & family” event last weekend and it was Fan. Flipping. Tastic.

We’re thrilled to be a part of their Grand Opening events and hope you can make it out to at least one of the whopping FOUR shows they’ll have that weekend!

Below are the two where you can see Bait & Switch. Information for the other shows can be found on Arcade Comedy Theater’s website.

Grand Opening: Friday 8pm Show with Pittsburgh Dad
Grand Opening: Saturday 8pm Show with Gene Collier

Check it aht, yinz guyz!


Don’t Call It a Comeback

Is this a dream? Where am I? Everything is spinning. Why am I soaking wet? And wearing a weird (yet oddly arousing) seashell bra?

Bait & Switch has been on a bit of a hiatus. Half of us got married this summer (Congrats, Switch!), and the other half may or may not have stowed away on a Disney Cruise ship and pulled the ol’ switcheroo on an innocent little 19 year old they just hired to portray Ariel.

I’m gonna get down from this rock and put on some damn clothes. You have plenty of time to take a disco nap, grab a shower, and eat some fiber before FNI tonight at 11pm in Pitt’s Studio Theater — which will cost you only $3!

See you there, suckers!

Our First First Night

We had an absolute ball playing for First Night! Both audiences were wonderful and responsive. They totally got the joke, and it seemed as though they appreciated the music, too. That’s a winning combo in our book.

We sold a couple dozen of our buttons and a few new fans have found us on facebook and here on the site (hi guys!), so we’d call that a smash success.

We really want to thank all our friends and fans, old and new, for supporting us. Thanks for everything!

We’re working on some audio and maybe even some video from the first set. We’ll keep you posted.

Happy New Year, yinz.

Friday Nite Improvs: The Freshmen

Last night, we played for the second Friday Nite Improvs of the year. It was such a full house that I expected the Olsen twins to waltz in at any moment. There were over 200 people in attendance based on the number of admissions paid! Nicely done, freshmen!

Shout-out to the lovely @LizLabz for this shot. Unfortunately the massive audience is behind it, but you can sorta see the sweet melodica Addi is using for her instrumental solo in “Cum On Feel the Noize.” Here’s a better look for anyone who is interested.

Until next time, FNI!

Thank You, FNI

We did it! We broke new ground at Friday Night Improvs tonight when we bait-and-switched two of our own parodies — to rave reviews! That’s right, we took two parody songs and parodied them. How daring!

We hope you enjoyed the Steelers showcase. You were too kind in allowing us to experiment with you. Oh! Before we forget, take a listen to our recorded version of “Black & Yellow.” It’s quite different from the live version. You know what it is.

Uh huh.
