Broken Lizard is coming. to the Pittsburgh Improv.
If you don’t know who that is… let’s try this – two of the guys that brought you “Beerfest,” “Supertroopers,” “Club Dread” and “The Slammin Salmon” are coming!
That’s right Pittsburgh. Get ready for gut-busting comedy entertainment when Steve Lemme and Kevin Heffernan take the stage Thursday, November 3 – Saturday, November 5 for five hilarious.
“I’ve never been to Pittsburgh,” said Lemme. “Normally we do a show and leave and never stay anywhere. We will be there for three nights so I’ll finally get a sense of what the city is about.”
What started as a college sketch comedy for Lemme, Heffernan and their friends in 1990 at Colgate University how now exploded into a successful flim, televsion and stand up career doing exactly what they love – making people laugh. While they’re well known for their films, the best thing about doing standup comendy on the road is what the fans can see.
“You’ll see a different side of us and it’s laugh out loud funny,” said Heffernan. “Moments where things go wrong are memorable. It’s hectic at times but then you start laughing because when you bring people upo n stage it’s really unpredictable.”
Speaking of unpredictable, Lemme told me a story of a recent show in Nashville TN where things didn’t go according to plan. While the majority of the inappropriate story cannot be translated tactfully to print, the gist of the eventful evening taught Lemme a very important lesson – never assume gender because on stage in front of a lot of people you could be very, very wrong. Thankfully the incorrectly identified audience member had a good laugh and threw a few jabs toward Lemme herself, but it was a night unforgettable in his mind.
“It brought the house down for at least 10 minutes,” said Lemme. “Greatest moment of my life and dream as a live performer.”
Tickets for Broken Lizard are $20 with a two item minimum at the show. The Improv is located at the Warterfront in Homestead. Free parking is available on site.
I hope you come out to see us and say hello,” said Lemme. “Let’s take some pictures!”
