The Sparkle Hour

Welcome to the Sparkle Hour, a joyous variety show hosted by Philip 'Sparkle' and featuring his favorite queer and alternative comedians! Come to the church of Sparkle and leave the cynicism at the door - we're bring the whimsy back to the stage!

Tickets ($10):

Featuring Guest performers:

Peter Kim (SHRINK)
Kat Palardy (Brooklyn Nine-Nine)
Dan Foster (DROP THE MIC)
Tim Murray (50 Shades: The Musical)
Tien Tran (Second City)

And your host, Philip Markle (JOE'S PUB)!

"In a comedy scene oversaturated with irony and cynicism, improv master Philip Markle invites you to indulge in blissful inanity at this absolutely batshit variety hour, featuring life-affirming wisdom from Markle, visceral humor from a crazed coterie of avant-garde performers and spectacular dance breaks."
 - Time Out NY

Bolting through the audience and bounding on to the stage with the conviction of a tent revival evangelist, Philip Markle quickly wins over the audience with his enthusiasm. Mr. Markle brilliantly balances the glittery outrageousness of his performance style with amazing storytelling skill. Coming out of his shell with vim and vigor, Markle brings home the message of “Be yourself, love yourself” at the heart of Sparkle Hour! ” -
