Experience ‘MANEATER: The True Story of the Champawat Tigress’ at UCB Theatre on January 16th, Manhattan, New York

Truth is stranger than fiction, right? You may not be convinced of it now, but after learning about the tale of the man-eating Champawat Tigress, you’ll certainly reconsider – and what better way to learn about this 100% true story than through the comic minds of UCB Theatre?

On January 16th at 8:00 PM, audiences can learn a little something about this unbelievable moment in history through MANEATER: The True Story of the Champwat Tigress. The comedy team of Matt Dennie and Josh Sharp relate the tale of the menacing tigress through a two-person sketch comedy show.

In the early 1900s, the Champawat tigress killed over 400 innocent villagers in the Nepal and Kumaon regions of India. After a young girl was slaughtered by the beast, the legendary hunter Jim Corbett shot the Bengal tigress and saved the villagers from further assault.

Matt Dennie and Josh Sharp bring some levity to this tragic historical event by entertaining the audience through song, dance, and stage magic, ultimately proving that no one is safe from unbelievably insane events.

MANEATER: The True Story of the Champawat Tigress is directed by Brandon Gulya and choreographed by Kassia Miller. To learn more about this uproariously hilarious sketch comedy or to purchase tickets for the comedy club's event, visit UCB Theatre online.
