ApocoLIPS + ManiPedi

Description: Come on out for a great night of comedy with Apocalips and ManiPedi!

Apocalips is a long-form improv group that hails from the fine city of Philadelphia. Formed in December of 2011, Apocalips (Karen Coleman, Jen Curcio, Shannon Devido, Mandy Dollar, Jana Savini, Cara Schmidt, Lizzie Spellman, Becca Trabin) have performed a number of comedy showcases around Philly, including the F. Harold Comedy Festival, Polygon Comedy, Comedian Deconstruction, and The SideShow, and have performed at New York City’s Del Close Marathon. A high-energy team of funny ladies with backgrounds in stand-up, storytelling, and everything in between – Apocalips aims to break boundaries and put the “fun” in to funny!

ManiPedi was pieced together in the summer of 2011. Madonna Marie Refugia, Shannon Brown, Briana Kelly, Kaitlin Thompson, and Aubrie Williams make up this Philadelphia based sketch comedy group. They were nominated for the 2011 WitOut Award for Best Sketch Group in Philadelphia and featured in the Ladies are Funny Festival 2012 in Austin, TX, as well as the 2012 Boston Comedy Arts Festival, where they were named one of the top festival picks by Dig Boston. ManiPedi brings on the laughs with their combination of irreverent wit and inherent un-femininity.
