A Few Answers Short

Description: A Few Answers Short is PHIT’s monthly answer to the accusation that we are too funny. One-part parody of America’s obsession with gameshows and competition, one-part chairman Greg Maughan’s homage to the British Radio programs he was raised on, and one-part total nonsense, AFAS is a panel-based gameshow featuring Philly’s top comedians in a meaningless competition filled with a series of challenges that test talents as varied as self-censoring ability, recognizing product barcodes, and naming songs played by the audience on kazoo.

Description: CAGEMATCH is competitive improv: two teams enter and perform, the audience votes, then a single team earns the right to remain.
