Every third Thursday, programming permitted, Williams Street Rep’s Comedy troupe performs at Raue Center For The Arts providing the audience with endless laughs with their improv and sketch comedy shows!
It’s hard to find a group of people having more fun making audiences laugh than these guys and gals. They take audience suggestions and sketches they’ve written themselves and turn out laughs like nobody’s business!
Taking what’s seemingly impossible, and making it funny, is something they’ve been around and doing since 2013, and they’re still cooking up a bunch of funnies with audience participation and charm and style to boot.
What’s improv all about you ask?
Improvisational Theatre (a.k.a improv) is a form of theatre that is unwritten and unrehearsed, and is created as it is performed. In what is called “short form,” the performance usually takes the form of games in which the performers take an audience suggestion and either have to think of how to portray or involve the suggestion.
“Long form” improv is when having taken an audience suggestion, the performers weave that suggestion into a new narrative created on the spot for the audience, somehow based on that suggestion.
“Sketch Comedy” is a short play, vignette, or skit based usually based on current events or poking fun at norms and mores in a comic and light-hearted manner.
What’s most amazing about this particular troupe is its ability to pull both off flawlessly and seamlessly, while having a completely new 2-hour show each week!
If you’re looking for some good laughs, look no further than this merry band of workaholics, every third Thursday at 8:00p at Raue Center For The Arts!
