Returned to Sender: Postal Ops returns this Saturday

Postal Ops

This Saturday, 8pm at Arcade Comedy Theater, James and Mike return with another performance of Postal Ops: Signed, Sealed, Deceased! It’s all part of their improv & radio production of Arcade Radio Mysteries.

Featuring the voice talents of Brad Stephenson (Knights of the Arcade) and Kristy Nolen (Dinner with the Nolens) alongside Rubino & Catullo, Postal Ops introduces the seedy underworld of mail fraud in 1920s Aliquippa. It’s a noir-tinged comedy that you don’t want to miss.

The show also features a brand new longform improv set packed full of pulp! Improvisers Rubino, Catullo, Kristy & Jethro Nolen, John Feightner, Liz Labacz, and more will team up to create a world of radio adventures, mysteries, and thrills… all based on audience suggestions.

Tickets are on sale now. $10 for adults, $5 for children 13 and up.


“Curse of the Book Thief” This Saturday!

Pittsburgh’s favorite librarian is back this Saturday, May 16, at Arcade Comedy Theater in a rare performance of “Curse of the Book Thief!” This full-length adventure was originally performed once, three years ago, and never released online. It begins our sixth season — none of which has ever been released on our podcast feed!

In this new adventure, Dodge and Pluck are brought in on a special book mission close to our intern’s heart: the Uncle Wilbur Corporation’s recipe book has been stolen! Now, it’s up to our heroes, along with some old friends & new faces, to track down Uncle Wilbur’s secrets and save the future of Potted Meat!

This performance is also unique in that it features a special guest voice actor: Joe Lyons, one of the stars of the popular Knights of the Arcade podcast and show. Lyons, a veteran writer and actor in his own right, is filling in for the roles usually played by Michael Hinzman. The show also features our regular cast of Mike Rubino, James Catullo, and Abby Fudor.

You can catch the show’s one-night-only performance this Saturday, at 8pm at Arcade Comedy Theater. The show is open to all ages, and kids under 18 get in for just $5. The venue is also BYOB and BYO-Potted Meat.

Queen’s Knight to Dodge’s Intern!

Secret Gambit HeaderWe’re just days away from a brand new, full-length adventure from Dodge Intrepid and the Pages of Time! Written by Mike Rubino and James Catullo over the past three months, this latest installment marks the beginning of the show’s Seventh Season — but you don’t need to worry about that if you’re new to the show.

Secret Gambit of the Chess Master is a fresh start for our librarian & intern duo. Picking up five years after their previous adventure, Gambit finds our heroes dealing with the curses and fame brought on by their experiences in World War II; Dodge is running from his past, working in a limestone mine in Lawrence County, and Pluck is a national war hero. They’ll have to put aside their past to deal with a new threat in the present: a devious villain known only as The Chess Master.

This new adventure is being performed one-night-only at Arcade Comedy Theater in downtown Pittsburgh. Show starts at 8pm, and is open to all ages. Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for students and kids under 18.

The Secret Gambit!

Secret Gambit

The year is 1947. Since the nuclear bombs have fallen and the war in Europe and the Pacific has ended, America has returned to the business of America: industry. Across the country, men return to factories, steel yards, construction sites, and farms… but there is one man who didn’t go home.

So begins the latest adventure of Dodge Intrepid and the Pages of Time: The Secret Gambit of the Chess Master! It’s a new adventure unlike anything you’ve heard from this pulp radio series: new villains, exotic locales, and plenty of witty intrigue!

Friday, November 21 at 8pm
Arcade Comedy Theater
811 Liberty Avenue, Pittsburgh PA
Tickets are $10 & $5 students – the show is all ages!


Special Release: Foley & Follies Improv Set!

Foley and FolliesAs part of our Arcade Radio Mysteries show last July, Dodge Intrepid and the Pages of Time presented two-acts of hilarious pulp. The first was the debut installment of our new spin-off series, Postal Ops. The second was a 45-minute, tightly-wound improv set inspired by very real radio show titles from the ’30s, ’40s, and ’50s.

Now, for your auditory pleasure, we’ve whittled down and cleaned up the Foley & Follies improv set for a quick and fun online release — as we had hoped, many of the scenes played out just like real radio plays!

The recording features performances by Mike Rubino, James Catullo, John Feightner, Kristy Nolen, Jethro Nolen, Jerome Fitzgerald, and our announcer Zach Simons.

Special Release: Death Shows the Way

In honor of this Saturday’s brand new Arcade Radio Mysteries show, we’re releasing a special recording from our show last October. It’s the Foley & Follies homage to The Shadow, where we performed the classic radio serial’s most surprising and politically incorrect episode “Death Shows the Way.”

Featuring voicework by John Feightner, Abby Fudor, Liz Labacz, James Catullo, Mike Rubino, Kristy Nolen, and Zach Simons as announcer and organist.

Going Postal

Saturday, July 12 at 10pm, James and Mike are returning to Arcade Comedy Theater for a brand new installment of Arcade Radio Mysteries — their pulpy variety that blends radio adventure and improv! This special show marks the debut of a new Dodge Intrepid and the Pages of Time spin-off series: POSTAL OPS.

Tailored after noir and procedural police serials, POSTAL OPS is a Prohibition-era comedy detective series following Wilson and Jerry Topplebottom. They’re fresh recruits to the Beaver County chapter of the United States Postal Service crime unit: Postal Ops. Can these two World War I veterans learn the ropes and follow the rules? Or will their thirst for mail-justice be too much to handle?

Don’t miss this brand new chapter in the Dodge Intrepid universe!

Tickets are ON SALE NOW and just $10!
