Hot Dog: Live at PHIT For One Night Only!

September 2 @ 8:30 pm - 9:30 pm

In a special one night only event, PHIT welcomes back one of Philly’s favorite improv duos- Hot Dog! Hot Dog is comprised of Luke Field and Jessica Ross, both former PHIT house team members and instructors, that have since moved to New York and Los Angeles. Tonight they reunite for the first time at PHIT since 2014!


HOT DOG (Jessica Ross and Luke Field) is an award winning improv duo featuring Luke Field and Jess Ross. They came up with the name while they were eating hot dogs. They explore a wide range of characters that go from absurd to neurotic to heart-breaking and everywhere in between. Expect to see big emotions and strong relationships – all thrown in a bun for one tasty show.

Jessica Ross is a writer at CollegeHumor and has written for NBC’s Red Nose Day and Beth Appel’s The Mess. She is thrilled to a writer on the UCB Maude Team, Bombardier and one of the new hosts of “Let’s Table This”. She is a former member the Mess Hall teams Cool Jerk and Shadowfax. She’s studied improv and sketch at UCB NY & LA, Second City, IO Chicago and IO West.
