We’ve been officially chosen to perform in this year’s NYC ImprovFest held by the People’s Improv Theater March 20-23! We had the pleasure of performing in this festival last year with the PHIT house team King Friday, and we’re so honored to be asked back as Grimacchio this year. This is a super fun festival, so please visit their website to read more about it, see the schedule, and grab tickets. Thank you, PIT!
Thank you to everyone who came out to support comedy in Philadelphia and attended the 2013 WitOut Awards. The show was a hit, and we had such a great time hosting! A super big thank you to Samantha Brown and the Grimacchio dancers, Philadelphia Slick, and Aaron Hertzog and Alison Zeidman for producing.
Please visit the WitOut website to keep up on everything comedy in Philadelphia, and check back here often to see what our next project will be!
Grimacchio will be performing at L’Etage with the ever-wonderful Polygon Comedy this coming Tuesday, January 8th. Doors open at 7:30pm, and the show will start at 8pm. We’ll be performing with some really great local stand up and improv teams as well. Don’t miss it! Visit the Facebook event page for more info.

We have the honor of hosting this year’s WitOut Awards! If you saw our Fringe show, then you know what’s in store for this year’s event. Live music? Check. Dancers? Check. Two handsome and talented hosts? Check and mate. It’ll be the award show that other award shows want to be, but are too scared to say out loud.
The event will be held on Sunday, January 13th at 6PM at World Cafe Live. Head over to the WitOut site to cast your votes and grab your tickets!
Hope everyone is staying safe and dry during the hurricane. And I hope when I look back through these posts on day in the future I read this and I’m like “pssht. That storm was nothin’” On the bright side, we’ve been chosen to perform in the upcoming Philadelphia Improv Festival 8! We’ll be closing out the Friday night block at 10pm. Please visit the PHIF website for more info and tickets.
See you there!
Well, the curtain has come down on our Fringe show. The Grimacchio Variety Hour was by all accounts a great success! And, we owe a lot of that success to everyone who was a part of the show. We’ve set up a special page on this website that lists everyone who was a part of the show as well as their contact info. Please be sure to contact these talented performers and go see their next shows!
And a big thank you to all of the audiences who came to see us during our run. You were all such good sports and made this all worth while.
We can’t wait to do it all again!
Our Philly Fringe project, The Grimacchio Variety Hour, opened Friday with an enthusiastic crowd, amazing band, unbelievable dancers, funny sketches, and some over the top talented guests. The show was a fun time, and our guests LaTice (stand up) and Secret Pants (sketch) knocked it out of the park.
Miss the opener? No problem! We have four more shows playing this weekend and into next week. And, each show will be full of different guests, so you’ll never see the same show twice!
And our opener has a great review in the CityPaper! Go read what you’ve been missing!

We’ve been hard at work putting an amazing show together for our run in September. The amount and variety of acts joining us on stage is pretty staggering. We’ve got stand-up, sketch, improv, impressions, and even cabaret! And of course, Jason and I will be singing and dancing along with our big band and dance team. This is definitely shaping up to be a must-see show.
Here’s Sam Brown (our amazing choreographer) and me learning some tap for the show. Tap! Who does that? We do. We want this show to blow everyone’s socks off. Remember to grab your tickets by visiting the Philly Fringe website, and tell your friends! This show is going to be great!
It’s official! We’re proud to announce our upcoming project for The Philadelphia Fringe Festival: The Grimacchio Variety Hour. Here’s the official release…
Comedy act Grimacchio (Jason Grimley and Ralph Andracchio) pay tribute to classic shows like Colgate Comedy Hour and The Carol Burnett Show, hosting an hour filled with big band songs—with a live band on stage!—dance interludes, sketch comedy, plus a special guest star or two.
We’ve been incognito for the past few months because we’ve been working really hard to make this show an amazing experience. Please spread the word about the show and let everyone know tickets are now on sale through the Philly Fringe website.
Keep checking back for more updates!
