DARK, DIRTY, AWARD-WINNING COMEDY ABSOLUTELY FILTHY IS EXCITED TO ANNOUNCE THEY HAVE BEEN ACCEPTED INTO THE NEW YORK INTERNATIONAL FRINGE FESTIVAL ENCORE SERIES!!!
Originally produced by Hollywood’s infamous Sacred Fools Theatre Company, ABSOLUTELY FILTHY, directed by Jeremy Aldridge and written by Brendan Hunt, just finished up a phenomenal SOLD OUT RUN in Orange County as part of South Coast Repertory’s Studio SCR series.
The show enjoyed an extended run in early 2013, and was bestowed with eight LA Weekly Award nominations, winning three: Best Comedy Ensemble, Best Female Comedy Performance (Anna Douglas) and Best Male Performance for star and writer Brendan Hunt.
The show also received accolades during its run in last summer’s Hollywood Fringe Festival, with Hunt again winning Best Actor, and the show itself taking home awards for Best Comedy and Top of the Fringe, the award for the festival’s single best show.
Absolutely Filthy centers on a homeless man perpetually surrounded by a cloud of dust and grime. He suddenly finds his life even more difficult to bear when he stumbles upon the funeral of his long-estranged best friend. But as he re-connects with his childhood pals, he finds he may have a shot at redemption. Absolutely Filthy is a dark, dirty comedy that takes a look at a group of characters after they leave the funny pages and head out into the real world.
Note: Contains nudity, profanity and adult situations.
