Event Description
Chickens. Ugly, stupid, dirty, and delicious are some words that may come to mind when thinking about these creatures. But it turns out that chickens are actually pretty cool, and our pattern of over consumption in the U.S. is not. To meet high demand, chickens have been genetically manipulated to grow too big, too fast, while living sedentary lives on crowded, dirty factory farm floors. The chickens have changed—and the meat has, too (we’re talking way less protein and way more fat). Grassroots Comedy DC has seen enough, which is why we’re partnering with the Executive Producer of the hit TV series Cash Cab and Compassion in World Farming to help in the best way we know how- by holding a show with a live chicken and insulting the heck out of it. You read that correctly. In this one-of-a-kind Comedy Central Style roast, four of DC’s best comics will convene to roast a live chicken (a rooster named Floyd) with their best insults. The roast will be filmed by a professional crew and turned into a 2 to 3 minute PSA to raise awareness of chickens as sentient animals, and to encourage and promote a more compassionate treatment of and reduction in consumption of these animals. The chicken roast will be followed by an opportunity for a few audience members to hold and pet Floyd, and good ole fashioned comedy show. WHERE YOU COME IN: In order to pull this off, we are in need of a live studio audience. Given that we won’t be able to pull this off without that, this hilarious event will be FREE ADMISSION. And to sweeten the deal even more, the first 10 people to reserve (free) tickets will be given a FREE DRINK OF YOUR CHOICE. So don’t be chicken and reserve your spot now to the Super Spectacular Chicken Roast at the Drafthouse Comedy Theatre! It may be the last time this ever happens.
