Here's where you can see stuff IRL. But to be honest, I'm including some URLs in here too.
Flying Solo @QED: May 8th
Need a cure for your Monday? Come on over, sit back, and let these singular sensations give you some laughs. From stand up to musical parody to storytelling to characters, they've got you covered!
"The Bat" Free Show Series @ Magnet Training Center
The Bat is a longform based on The Harold, but with one key difference: it all takes place in the dark, and the improvisers only have their voices to communicate. This form challenges performers to build their listening skills, and to focus on creating characters and relationships with voice alone. Students will test and push the boundaries of what they can do with their voices, and provide a unique experience for the audience as well. It's like modern improv meets old-timey radio! The eight class sessions are followed by a four week run of shows, giving students an enhanced opportunity to learn by doing, over time, in front of a real audience.

Pop Fiction @ QED

Old tunes rewritten with new messages, quirky lyrics, and pop star magic! Enjoy a mini parody concert, fake celeb interviews, laughs, and more as we explore a different diva every month.
March's muse is Ariana Grande, and the Variety Jam that follows gives us all the more reason to CELEBrate! All written comedic work is welcome: sketches, parody songs, stand-up, and characters will take the stage as we enjoy the show!
