Yes, it’s that time of year again, when The Crew celebrate their birthday in style. This Sunday, we commemorate six years of weekly impro comedy – the longest run in Australia – with the annual Impro Rumble! The best of the best comedy improvisers will battle it out for their honour and your entertainment, right there on the stage!
Who will take home the (non-existent) title belt? Will it be last year’s defending champion, Janelle Koenig? (The bookies reckon she can.) Or perhaps the Man himself, yours truly? (Unlikely, but fun to think about.) Come cheer on your favourite in this free spectacular event!
Where: The Comics Lounge, 26 Errol St, North Melbourne
When: 5:30pm, this Sunday the 27th of May.
How Much: Free!
More buzz about : one of the hardy souls participating in the Funny Tonne (where the contestants try to see 100 Festival shows) gave the show 8 out of 10. Also the very lovely Edward Yates came to see the show, and you can read his thoughts about it in his blog, the wells of fancy.
If you’d like to see Science-ology on Friday the 13th (spooky!), arts web site The Program are giving away three double-passes for every show in my venue, the Banner Room (aka the TARDIS) at Comedy @ Trades! Check out this awesome giveaway here.
The Crew‘s Instant Order: Trial by Audience opened last night, and you can catch Ben in this improvised murder trial tonight at Glitch Bar + Cinema in St. George’s Road, Fitzroy North. And don’t forget to check out the other Crew shows: Classic Impro Sundae at the Comic’s Lounge, and Instant Musical Odyssey at Laundry, as part of Triple Trouble.
This Sunday the 10th of September, The Man joins an all-star lineup for Impro Sundae with The Crew at the Comic’s Lounge, Errol Street North Melbourne. This is his last appearance with them until after October 29, so if you ever wondered if an understanding of chaos and complexity theory leads to greater improvisational skills, now’s your chance to find out! Entry $10.
