SWEAR JAR

iDiOM Theater presents the world premiere of “Swear Jar,” an obscene(ly funny) live sketch comedy show from the mind of Tim Greger. When the narrator is murdered at the beginning of the show, reality begins to slowly unravel, as absurdity begins to completely eclipse normality.

Doors at 7:30pm, show at 8:00pm

Featuring:

Tobias Childs as:
himself, a barista, an inventor, a camper, a devout wife, a mercenary and a cowboy

Katie Heath as:
herself, a banker, the richest woman in the world, a producer and a defendant

Jake Barrow as:
himself, a narrator, a sleepwalker, a prosecuter, a cowboy, a man from the future and space explorer

Levi Friedman as:
himself, a cop, a chef, an advertisement, a cowboy, a navigator, and an honorable knight

and Tim Greger as:
himself, a little brother, a captain, an investigator, a judge, a cowboy and Billy Bob Thornton

Midsummer Shows!

iDiOM Theater’s jam-packed 2014–2015 Season kicks off in September, but that doesn’t mean we’re taking the summer lying down!

 
iDiOM presents four weekends of summer shows: sketch comedy, new short works, late-night theater, avant-garde absurdism, and our first ever Art Walk gallery show all make for a summer packed with previews of our biggest season ever and a broad sampling of the strange and wonderful work that makes iDiOM what it is.

New sketch comedy and late-night shows by Tim Greger will be a staple of the upcoming season, as will our new series of short works, The Brass Monkey Theater Club.

August 1st will mark the first of six art shows iDiOM will host this coming year, featuring great food and drinks, and an exhibit of photos, posters, and memorabilia from a decade of iDiOMATiC theater will line our little black-walled room on Cornwall Avenue.
