A new, live presentation of the sitcom Public TV will hit the Milwaukee ComedySportz Arena stage on Monday, November 21st at 7 pm!

 

From the warped and hilarious mind of Anthony Wood, creator of the hit Milwaukee holiday musical, A Cudahy Caroler Christmas, comes the comedy series about the uproarious goings-on at a local public television station.

 

The show, developed by Mr. Wood and his creative partner and wife, award winning filmmaker Claudia Looze, is based on their years working as freelance producers for Milwaukee Public TV. It follows the life of a young, naive producer as she starts her first days at the local PBS TV affiliate. The world of public television is not what she envisioned; as local Public TV is less about Downton Abbey and Nova, and more about sewing, yoga, model train collecting, pet care, pledge dives and hunting and fishing programs. We watch her hilariously deal with the bizarre personalities hosting the different shows she’s assigned to work on, and the mishaps that occur along the way.

 

The crew of the local station is also filled with oddball characters that include a production manager with severe sweat problems, a technical director with Tourette’s, a huge crew of doughnut loving technicians, and a handsome and witty producer who has vowed to make her his sworn enemy.  And let’s not forget Tim Conway!

 

The live reading, which will also be webcast worldwide, will be presented on the Arena Stage at ComedySportz, 420 S First Street in Milwaukee, at 7 pm. It will feature a cast of some of the Midwest’s finest acting talent, from American Player’s Theatre to First Stage Children’s Theatre, Next Act Theatre and ComedySportz. Notable names include Jim Pickering, Bo Johnson, Drew Brhel, Megan Kaminsky and Tim Higgins.

 

The show is free, first come first serve, with drinks and commiseration after the show in the ComedySportz Lounge.

 

Mr. Wood is available for interviews to chat more about the show and his creative history. Promotional materials and more info can be requested at: tony@smokingmonkey.net.
