Crossroads Comedy Theater

Crossroads Comedy Theater is a home for comedy shows and podcasts on stage, online, and on air featuring performers from the Philly area and beyond. Our shows, much like our performers, are at a crossroads of different forms of entertainment mixing hilarious improvised scenes with lectures, news, the movies, and more. We performed over two dozen online shows throughout the pandemic and plan on continuing in a limited capacity now that we can perform live in front of real humans again. We are new and we greatly appreciate your support!


JAKE MATTERA: Jake Mattera was a finalist at the Boston Comedy Festival and he is a 3x finalist at Helium Comedy’s Philly’s Phunniest competition. Jake has acted in sketches that have appeared on CONAN and he is featured regularly as a guest on Philadelphia’s top radio shows. He has been invited to perform at many prestigious festivals all over the country, including: Big Sky Comedy Festival, Laughing Skull Comedy Festival, Limestone Comedy Festival, San Francisco Sketchfest, HBO’s Women In Comedy Festival, and more. He has opened for: Dave Attell, Nate Bargatze, Ron Funches, and Roy Wood Jr. among others. You can follow Jake on Twitter @JakeMattera. jAKE 

HOFFMAN: Hoffman is a veteran Phit improv team with a penchant for playing big characters and sharing yarns both truthful and delightfully absurd. The cast includes Kayleigh Liggitt, Andrew Sigwart, Whitney Rumble, Jacob Todd, Peter Szekeres, and Sean Keegan-Landis – improvisers who have been getting weird with each other for more than half a decade. So they’re pretty comfortable making each other look silly, dumb, and pleasantly outlandish for your enjoyment. 

NYTEShift: This dope-ass comedy troupe comprised of multi-talented racial minorities takes to the stage for their first show since the before times. Straight up “haha’s” for days. Just a few Americans trying to express ourselves. Features Keane Cobb, Kelly Conrad, Jabari Dortch, Marcely Jean-Pierre, Tia Kemp, James Knight, and Randie Welles.
