Being funny in front of your friends is no big deal. After all, you make it look easy. They appreciate the punchy puns tinged with sarcasm that you throw out effortlessly. But doing the same in front of a crowd of strangers, well, that's a little tougher. Luckily, there are some selfless souls willing to brave the stage armed with nothing more than quick thinking and a goofy disposition.
"Live funny, die laughing" is the motto of local improvisation troupe Improvolution, a group of such individuals who have no qualms about doing off-the-cuff improv. With more than 30 years of collective experience in theater and comedy, the folks who comprise Improvolution are damn good at it.
On Friday, Aug. 19, at the Linen Building, you can catch the group whirling through everything from popular improv skits to stand-up comedy to hilarious sketches, all while engaging the audience in their antics. It's good, clean fun and the show is appropriate for all ages.[ Video is no longer available. ]
