Patric Ciervo is a comedy writer and performer from Philadelphia, PA. The show 'Patric Writes Sketches' features comedy written entirely by Patric Ciervo and performed by some of his favorite Philadelphia comedians. Patric Writes Sketches has performed at PHIT'S Black Friday Comedy Marathon (2014) (2015) and PIT'S New York SketchFest (2015).

Bad Medicine is a DC-based sketch comedy group specializing in the dark, the cerebral, and the absurd. Though it has humble beginnings–conceived over a plate of tater tots and a few warm beers–Bad Medicine has quickly grown into one of the most eclectic sketch groups in the District and features a cast and crew trained by Second City, the Upright Citizen’s Brigade, Washington Improv Theater, District Improv, and DoJo Comedy. They are a group of singers, designers, lawyers, and students with the shared goal of writing the best sketch comedy about the worst of humanity. Notable festivals include NYC SketchFest, Charm City Comedy Festival (Baltimore) and Summer Improv Medley (DC).

Bad Medicine is DC’s best sketch comedy about the worst of humanity.

Peggylouloulouloulou is a messy character and solo sketch show that stars Amanda Xeller and you, but mainly Amanda. It’s a bear of a show that might end in a movie.

Amanda Xeller is an improviser, writer, and clown residing in NYC. She co-head the annual Lady Sketch Lab at the Magnet Theater. She’s improvised with several Megawatt Teams and was on highly traveled sketch team Baby Shoes. Her solo show, Peggylouloulouloulou, has been a part of the L.A. Scripted Comedy Festival, Ladyfest, NYC Sketchfest, and was named a “stand out” and “audience favorite” at Montreal Sketchfest ’15 by Mobtreal.

Amanda has studied comedy at the Upright Citizen’s Brigade, Magnet Theater, Annoyance BK, Movement Theater, Barrow Group, and with Complicité in London, England. She’s an alumna of the National Theater Institute. Amanda also holds a BA in Theatre from Fairfield University where she received The Award for Outstanding Service to the Theater Arts Program for her achievements and pursuits in improv. Amanda grew up across the street from an alligator-filled bayou in Houston, Texas. She wishes she could sing like Justin Hawkins.
