About "The SMUT Show"

In 2008, Steve Shaw and Andrea Bertola conceived the idea for "The SMUT Show" (Scandalous Mayhem Under Tinseltown). This production was a first-of-it's-kind parody based on celebrity culture that provided the same fix of Hollywood gossip in theatre form. The show opened at Comix Comdey Club to sold-out audiences.

NEW YORK, March 3 2008 /PRNewswire/ --
 What happens when you mix tabloids + sketch comedy? S.M.U.T (Scandalous Mayhem Under Tinseltown) announces its red carpet opening night at Comix, Thursday, March 6th, 2008 in an unlimited engagement.

Let's face it, celebrity scandal is EVERYWHERE and we're hooked-celebrity pregnancies, meltdowns, rehab visits, Hollywood DUIs and of course the never ending public fascination to fuel the drama. Previewed in December (2007) to sold out audiences at Comix, S.M.U.T is a first of its kind parody based on celebrity culture that provides the same fix of Hollywood gossip in theatre form, with a twist.

S.M.U.T was produced by Ei8ht 22 Productions and written by a group of seven NYC twenty and thirty somethings obsessed with celebrity culture. The production follows a fast-paced comedy sketch style similar to that of Saturday Night Live and each week, the team meets to update the show with the very latest developments in the tabloids and must-see material. The show features a hugely talented cast including Lorraine Bracco's niece Lindsay Bracco, playing the roles of all the usual suspects.

The 25 sketches that makeup the show include skits such as: Sex Ed with Paris and Nicole, A Moment with the Cruises, Perez Hilton: Gateway to Hell, On The Playground-celebrity offspring sharing the woes of having famous parents, to name just a few. Musical numbers include "I Think I'm A Clone Now", "Oops I f'd Up Again" and "Maternity World".

"I wanted to lure generation Y back to theatre again and what better way than through their everyday obsession," explained Steve Shaw, director. Writer/Producer Andrea Bertola conceived the idea for the show and explained, "We're all obsessed with the unraveling of Hollywood lives! We all wake up in the morning and log onto Perez Hilton everyday... so we decided to have a little fun and take our obsession to another level."
