The Feral Chihuahuas, Asheville's premeire sketch comedy troupe, announce their Summer 2009 Season. Eight different shows throughout the summer. With continued success at 35 Below the past two summers, the Chihuahuas have had to move to a bigger venue The Asheville Arts Center to accomodate demand. Drawing from several different styles, the Feral Chihuahuas love to create sketch comedy with social and political commentary, absurdism, satire and even existentialism.
Their biggest influences are disparate but notable and include: Monty Python, Mr. Show, Upright Citizen’s Brigade, Kids in the Hall and numerous other non traditional sources. With a nod to Lenny Bruce, they are also known to push the bounds of comedy to at times an offensive level. Not without a purpose, a message is often embedded in even the most disturbing moments. Working hard not to skimp on production value, a Chihuahuas shows is always a multimedia affair; complete with live sketches, detailed sound effects, elaborate costumes, music, well crafted video sketches, songs and yes, they own lots of wigs.
