Submission information is available online.

This Friday, Eddie Pepitone returns to Philadelphia to perform at Underground Arts. “The Return of the Bitter Buddha” will feature Pepitone’s signature style described as “a force of nature on stage, switching between social rage and self-doubt. His shows are an energetic combo of calm and chaos, blue-collar angst and sardonic enlightenment.” Tickets are available online.

Philly Improv Theater’s  run of shows at The Shubin continues this week with a full schedule of shows.
