WGA and SAG member Drew Carey and the cast of The Armando Show played to a packed house last night at the iO West theater.
The Armando Show is one of iO West's longest-running shows featuring a guest monologist every week backed by a regular troupe of improvisers (including SNL's Tim Meadows, and MADtv's Stephnie Weir). This week's improvisers included WGA members John Reynolds (Late Late Show), Joe O'Brien (Late Late Show), Adrien Wenner (My Boys), Ed Lee (The Drew Carey Show), Kate Purdy (Cold Case), and Wendy Molyneux (The Megan Mullally Show) in addition to the regular Armando cast.
Over the month of January and until February 4, The Armando Show will raise money through ticket proceeds for the Writer's Guild Foundation Industry Support Fund.
Next up, Ron Livingston hosts on January 14th, Bob Odenkirk on January 28th, leading up to a star-studded finale on February 4th featuring cast members from The Daily Show, The Office, SNL, and MADtv.
Tickets for the Armando Show are $10 (February 4th will be $25) and can be purchased in advance at the iO WEST web site www.iowest.com or by calling 323.962.7560.
iO WEST is located at 6366 Hollywood Blvd, between Cahuenga and Vine.
