It’s been over a month since Valentine’s Day was shoved in our faces everywhere we went. Can we please get back to a REAL look at modern-day romantic relationships? We can?! Good!

And one hilarious comedy show is going to help with just that.

Upright Citizens Brigade star Carly Ann Filbin will be bringing her one-woman show, This Doesn’t Mean I’m Your Boyfriend, down from its home in New York to Philly for the first time ever. It will make its debut at Philly Improv Theater (PHIT) in Rittenhouse Square on Friday, March 22 at 10:00pm. The show, the result of three years of work by Filbin, enjoyed a very successful seven-month run at the famed UCB.

While Filbin is a very successful web star (her web series Single Blonde Failure has been featured on who has worked on projects for everyone from MTV to Comedy Central, she apparently cannot grasp the ins and outs of dating. This Doesn’t Mean I’m Your Boyfriend serves as an equal parts hilarious and heartbreaking look at Filbin’s own misadventures in romance. Audiences are promised an hour filled with everything from “relationships that defined her” to “a very expensive hand-job.”

“It’s a very vulnerable piece of comedy and I’m very proud of that,” Filbin explained. “I’ve had all types of people say how much they’ve related to the subject matter, so I hope they will leave examining their own emotions and actions.”

Whether you are happily in love, single but optimistic, or, well, bitter, there is guaranteed to be something for everyone in Filbin’s show. Audiences can expect to walk out into the crisp March night after the show ready to face the ups and downs of relationships. Maybe we will all be more prepared once Valentine’s Day 2020 rolls around.

This Doesn’t Mean I’m Your Boyfriend will be held at Philly Improv Theater (PHIT) on Friday, March 22 at 10PM. Tickets, which range from $12 to $15, can be purchased online or at the door.
