The Pocket Theater
presents Phil Schallbeger of Portland, OR in Ultra Showberger
on Saturday February 28th at 8:30pm. The show is a “hyper-absurd solo comedic performance by Phil Schallberger. Mixes old theater advertisements, hair-brained Swiss futurism, questionable puppetry, and powerpoint-t.v. in to a very unique, very loved comedic experience.”
Fremont Universe previously featured The Pocket Theater
during the organization’s nomadic era presenting shows at venues throughout Seattle including Fremont’s West of Lenin. Since then The Pocket Theater established a home of its own on Greenwood Ave N and N 84th Street where performances, classes, and workshops take place.
Show Description – Ultra Showberger is one of the most fast-paced, absurd, semi-sensical shows around. The show combines powerpoint, chaos, and games for a very unique and hilarious experience. Performed entirely by Phil Schallberger, the show is a completely anti-biographical collage of broken characters and questionable “puppets” that will defy expectation with an aesthetic described as “catastrophically and inspirationally cheap”. This-one-of-a-kind show will only be here for a single night before evaporating into the ether of memory, so don’t miss out!
The Pocket Theater is located at 8312 Greenwood Ave N, Seattle. Performances are $10 online and $14 at the door. Online sales close at 4pm on the day of show.
