THE BIG COMBO is an original sketch comedy show from writer/producer Caitlin Kunkel (Second City, Late Night Action) and writer/director Jason Rouse (Sweat, Live Wire, Weekend at Bernie’s). They’ve created a show concerning complex lists, nervous rotisserie chickens, the dangers of fresh water swimming, waiting rooms, the deep knowledge of four-year-olds, sanctioned time travel and Boz Scaggs. They’re able to do this because of the venerable talent assembled from Portland’s improv, theater and stand-up scene.
Jed Arkley, Scott Engdahl, Katie Michels, Pat Moran, Jennifer Rowe, Brooke Totman & Jason Rouse
I’ll be directing and writing for this great monthly variety show when it comes back for the third season on Saturday, November 9 at 10:00pm at Action/Adventure Theatre. More information can be found on the show website and below:
