Wednesday Improv Throwdown presented by On The Spot
January 27, 2016 @ 7:15 pm - 8:15 pm
On the Spot Improv presents the Walkabout Wednesday Improv Throwdown! Free Comedy!
Now in its Third Season, this high-energy short form improv comedy show pits 1 guest Improviser against our Iron Improvisers in a 2v2 battle for points, laughs, and audience appreciation. Your suggestions start the scenes, your approval crowns the winner! To keep the improvisers honest, our referee will monitor the action, awarding points for stellar play. And if the improvisers stumble, watch out for the yellow flag and loss of points.
Show starts at 7:30 at the ARTS at Marks Garage, and it goes down EVERY WEDNESDAY. The performer lineup is constantly changing to incorporate the island’s best improvisers and special guests, so the only guarantee is a hilarious time. This is a family-friendly show (with penalties awarded for the occasional slip-up) – come one, come all!
Best of all, this show is FREE!
