Saturdays – Mystery’s Most Wanted

Mystery’s Most Wanted presents…It’s Murder, Charlie Brown!

January 22nd 10:00pm

What do you do when an agent signs you to an ironclad contract? In this case, when the agents name is Ebeneezer Screw and it's almost Christmas, you kill him. Journey back to 1940's Broadway and see how these divas deal with the death of their agent and the opening of their latest production, Santa Claus, Superstar.

Mystery’s Most Wanted presents…One Love to Lose…

February 19th 10:00pm

When television’s highest rated soap opera faces technical difficulties, the actors must mount an outrageous live performance in which everything becomes real -- even the murder!

Mystery’s Most Wanted presents…Robin Hood Don’t Look So Good.

March 12th 10:00pm

Take a journey back to Sherwood Forest, where a rakish Robin, a sly Sheriff, and a not-so-married band of men and maidens take a risqué romp through Naughtiham.

**Mystery’s Most Wanted shows begin with a cast mingle at 10pm, and the show at 10:30pm.

Saturdays - Variety

The John McIntire Dangerously Live Comedy Talk Show

February 5th 10:30pm

Media personality and comedian John McIntire hosts this irreverent and entertainingly informative panel show, which features local journalists, politicians and comics exploring topical issues and riffing on the news of the day. Timely topics and panelists are announced two weeks prior to each show.

The Hodgepodge Society

March 5th 10:30pm

“The Hodgepodge Society is a clandestine organization as old as time itself...or it may very well be older than time, we’re not sure, but as soon as we figure out a scientific way to measure time in the absence of time, we’ll revise this press release. May all those who stand in our way fall prey to the death of a thousand cobras. May all those who choose to stand beside us, stand triumphant in victory with a humorous study in their hands and a dirty limerick in their hearts. Everyone else, enjoy the rampant sketch comedy!”

Romp and Roll with Gorman Lowe & Friends

March 19th 10:30pm

A MUSICAL REVUE as irresistible as it is irreverent! Romp and Roll is a break-neck, mad-cap barrage of BROADWAY MUSIC, PARODIES and BURLESQUE COMEDY with a touch of the “BURGH”
