Boston's Best-Loved Comedy Group Launches New TV Show
BOSTON, June 14, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Boston's most beloved comedy group, Improv Asylum, is altering the landscape of late-night comedy with the announcement of their brand new TV show, Improv Asylum's Vanity Project. The nationally-renowned comedy troupe from Boston's North End will launch their sketch comedy show, Improv Asylum's Vanity Project on ABC/WCVB TV Channel 5 on Saturday nights at Midnight starting on July 2nd. The show will feature Improv Asylum's signature brand of comedy, pointing their comedic lens at all topics, from the political to the absurd to the mundane. And of course this will be done with that particular Boston attitude that makes our city famous, or infamous, all over the country.
Think that's it? Well it's not. Improv Asylum is also launching a "First Look" version of the show on boston.com, the most trafficked local news and entertainment website in the greater Boston market.
"We are thrilled to bring our fans more of our brand of comedy, and reach out to a huge market that may not have yet seen us at our theater." says Co-owner Chet Harding . "With viral hits like Oscar-Winning Boston Movie (voted Best Viral Video by the Boston Phoenix (watch it here! http://youtu.be/Hq99S8Euslk), finalist for Best Oscar Parody by the Huffington Post), Brady 9-1-1, Marathon Thoughts and The College Town (winner of "Spoof Golden Globe" - Popeater.com), we know there is a demand for our material outside the walls of our theater."
"Being able to partner with a local television institution like ABC/WCVB TV 5, as well as the most viewed local website in Boston with boston.com, we are excited to be doing something in this market that has never been done before. And being Bostonians, we have the attitude that we don't need permission from New York or LA. We prefer to just do it ourselves," says Improv Asylum Co-owner Norm Laviolette .
When it's not Live from New York, it's Live from Boston (Taped!).
Improv Asylum's Vanity Project Saturday nights at Midnight on ABC/WCVB TV 5, "First Look" broadcast on www.boston.com on Thursdays.
