Porkchop Volcano Online

February 27 @ 8 p.m. / $5

One of DC's favorite short-form improv troupes beams into your home via Zoom video conferencing. With Anna Bethel, Conor O'Rourke and Matt Stephan.


One of DC's best improv troupes is taking its show online! If you have a computer, a tablet or a smart phone and you're ready for some good times, log on and join the fun.

Taking suggestions from the audience makes every Porkchop Volcano show unique and personal. In the words of DC Metro Theater "With clearly defined characters and an uncanny chemistry within the group, Porkchop Volcano are a force to be reckoned with." They frequently perform corporate and private shows at the DC Improv, Brightbox Theater, and elsewhere. They’ve been lauded by the Washingtonian, DC Theatre Scene, and CBS DC as the show to watch. See for yourself!

Anna Bethel splits her love equally between documentaries, pie and the state of Ohio. Yet, she still finds time to teach improv, but we don’t hold that against her. For fun she forcibly walks other people’s dogs against their will. Unfortunately, she has become addicted to stealing pens from bank lobbies and has built up an unwieldy collection of those little ball chains that were meant to keep said pens in place. She also loves to window shop at the Build-A-Bear Workshop.

Jon Milstein is creative and has a thirst for life and a thirst for wine. When not sailing, skiing or doing some other very white person activity, he can be found picking wild blackberries for his homemade jam. In his free time he ignores hunger, thirst, hygiene and loved ones all in the name of his beloved video games. Unfortunately, he had a run in with the law that one time and now he is on the lamb using a fake name. He also loves soup.

Conor O'Rourke is young at heart and young at age. He plays by his own rules and is the typical "bad boy," quick to rebel against any authority. He attended a catholic high school, which is where he learned how to pick a lock, make out with hot chicks, smoke a cigarette and to impersonate a member of the clergy. Unfortunately, his business sense is sub-par and will sign any document put in front of him without reading it. He also loves peanut brittle.

Matt Stephan loves life and he loves his family. He has children and owns at least one minivan. But this responsibility does not get in the way of his whimsy. He never takes anything too seriously, unless it's a glass of good bourbon. At any given moment in the day he can be found watching cartoons from the 80s. Unfortunately, he is allergic to many things, including but not limited to: dust, mold, cats, dogs, ragweed, water, tree pollen, plant pollen, people pollen, the color tan and air. He also loves a Hickory Farms gift basket.
