Physical Education: The World’s Worst Opening Night
Join New York’s premiere unhinged comedy squad, Varejao, and a team of guests, experts and friends, as they embark on a mission to make sports fascinating.
No more snoozing when dad’s got golf on. No more Super Bowl Sundays spent secure in a bunker. It’s time to learn about the obscure, the wild, the human, and the heartfelt. It’s time to learn to love both the player and the game!
This month’s game: BASEBALL
Enjoy a night of schadenfreude and fun as Varejao, with all of baseball history as its material, attempts to create the worst baseball game of all time. Joined by a panel of hilarious guests, come see how we construct the biggest sports fiasco imaginable!
Doors: 9:00pm, Show start: 9:30pm
Tickets: $10 adv / $12 door
Please note: this event is mixed seated and standing room. Seats are first-come first-serve.
