A sport-stravagant celebration of the larger-than-life spectacle that is professional wrestling (with only some of the wrestling). Philly’s top comedic performers pay homage to the flashy trash talking promos, slick video packages, & bitter rivalries of the squared circle. WARNING: Our performers may break your chair over each others’ heads.
In place of auditions, this show will be taking online applications from comedians interested in performing. Potential performers will be asked to provide their contact information and a description of the wrestling character they would like to create for the show.

CASTING, REHEARSALS, and SHOWS
Upwards of 20 people will be cast and notified in mid-July that they will perform in the September run, with a meeting of all participants sometime during the same month. Performers will then be paired up for “fights” and expected to rehearse their fight with the commissioners and a fight choreographer. There are three performances scheduled for PRO-MANIA!, on the following dates:
Friday, 9/2 at 11:30 p.m.
Friday, 9/9 at 11:30 p.m.
Friday, 9/16 at 11:30 p.m.
In addition there will be a fight call in the early evening (approx. 5:00 p.m.) before each performance for the wrestlers on that date to rehearse their moves.
