Phil Ranta Acting in “Top Story! Weekly” at the iO West

Americans!  Non-Americans!  Everyone else!  Lend me your time!

I’ll be guest starring with the cast of the award-winning sketch comedy show at the world famous iO West Theater “Top Story! Weekly” on Sunday, January 8 at 9:00 pm! I am regularly a staff writer for the show, but for once I’ll be doffing my writer’s hat, then donning it again, then donning an acting helmet on top of the writer’s hat.

Tickets are only $5, there’s killer drink specials at the bar, and valet parking is only 4 clams when you show your iO West ticket stub!  (Bring exact clams, as valet attendants don’t often bring sea creatures for change)
