into the KOTH next round!!!

Filed under: on stage — phil @ 8:32 pm

here’s a second chance for you in case you missed last night’s show. my team, the Ball Boys (get your head outta the gutter. it’s tennis ball boys), consisting of channing clarkson, buddy macuha and myself won last night’s king of the hill theatresports round catapaulting us into next week’s round.

it was a thrilling show as larger crowds always up the energy level. after judging the winners of last week (the firecrackers) versus challengers yo ho!, we took the stage at 9pm against the latter after they won by a point. the jugdes issued a genre challenge for which the audience called for romance. it ended with william (me) and antoinette (channing). lip locked. hey if you’re all guys on a team, someone’s gotta take one for the team. other memorable moments include a jewish family dinner with buddy’s “mom” suggesting “now let’s say grace” and a very fun improvised song about audience member avi that we jumped in as background vocalists.

we battled to a tie. john’s tie-breaker was for each team to select a member of the other team to participate in a dance-off. we selected chet and they selected me. bad move! my old school medley of running mans, roger rabbits, robocops, breakdancing (both up-rocking and floor work including the swipes, baby!), my trademark cabbage patch-snake combo coupled with not so old school faves like the butterfly topped off with my michael jackson solo easily won the crowd over.

tune in next week to cheer us on to the next round, this sunday, july 16 at 8pm.

Sundays at the Bayfront in July kicks off with the King of the Hill Theatresports Tournament.

Which ever team is left standing goes on to the following week and so on until one team is crowned King of the Hill! Come cheer me on as I enter the tournament. A scant $5 gets you 2 hours of improvised fun.

Vote in “Best of the Bay” Poll

Filed under: Uncategorized — phil @ 9:03 pm

If you haven’t already voted “BATS Improv” for “Best First Date Spot” in the S.F. Bay Guardian’s annual Best-of-the-Bay poll, please do so right now!
Go to:

Voting ends this Tuesday, June 20 at 5 p.m.

Please spread the word to friends, family, and other BATS supporters far and wide. (They don’t need to be in San Francisco to vote online.)


If you are so inclined, we’d love for you to vote “BATS Improv” as “Best First Date Spot” in the 2006 Best-of-the-Bay poll.

BATS has been recognized as a good date spot before. Just this month, 7×7 Magazine named BATS “most spontaneous date night” in its “The Very Best of San Francisco 2006″ issue.

And in 2003, San Francisco Magazine named BATS one of the “20 Best Places to Meet Your Match.”

BATS has collected “Best of the Bay” honors six times. We were named “Best Improv Company” in 1998, 1999,
2000, 2001, and 2003 and “Best Comedy Troupe” in 2004. (BATS won the improv award so many times, they retired
it in 2004!)

There IS a “Best Theater Company” category…and we’d LOVE your vote in that one as well…but we since lots
of people start relationships at BATS, it seems like we have a good shot to be recognized as THE first date spot. Plus, this way, we’re not competing against all our friends at other theatre companies and improv troupes around the Bay Area.
