Fringe Limerick: The WaitStaff

Posted July 15th, 2010

Last year we solicited poems from Philly Fringe artists about their shows. As you read, we got a wide range of responses, with a wide range of intents. This year, we’re going back to the well.

First up: Gerre Garrett insists insists that you know in no uncertain terms what it is, exactly, The WaitStaff does:

There once was a troupe called The WaitStaff
Who worked very hard to make folks laugh.
But many don’t know
They write and rehearse every show,
Serving up SKETCH (not improv) The WaitStaff!

If you can’t wait until September for your dose of SKETCH (not improv), The WaitStaff will present Christmas in July: A Surprise Birthday Party for Jesus at World Cafe Live on Sunday, July 25 at 7:00 pm. $20-$30. On the third day after the first performance, the show rises again on July 28 and 29 at L’Etage as well: 8:00 pm, $15.

At 2010 Philly Fringe, The Waitstaff presents The Real Housewives of South Philly September 5, 8, 12, 14, 19. Times vary. $15, at L’Etage,
