Twice the Fools Play This Saturday!

Tacoma or Olympia? YOU DECIDE!

Tacoma or Olympia? YOU DECIDE!

Tomorrow (Saturday, October 22nd 2016), Fools Play Improv is performing NOT ONE, but TWO shows!

First you can see Fools Play at the Olympia’s South Sound Estuarium at 8:00 PM. Then you can see Fools Play at the Tacoma Little Theatre at 10:30 PM:

Fishy fishy fishy fishy boom boom boom

Fishy fishy fishy fishy boom boom boom

It should be noted that the South Sound Estuarium and Tacoma Little Theatre are about a 30-minute drive apart (in good traffic), so it is actually possible to go see BOTH shows. I, however, will only be performing in Tacoma.

It should also be noted that this isn’t the first time Fools Play Improv has performed at the Tacoma Little Theatre. NO! Fools Play had a memorable run there a couple of decades ago as well:

Two Upcoming Fools Play Opportunities

Pure profit...

Pure profit…

Hey, there are a couple of Fools Play Improv shows coming up that y’all might wanna look into. And after looking into them, y’all might want to actually, y’know, go to them.

The first one happens this Saturday. Hey! That’s tomorrow!

A colorful cast!

A colorful cast!

Fools Play is part of a massive bill that includes two musical acts and a couple of stand-up comedians, so they’ll be doing a shortened show as just one of the acts. Bonus: Half Pint makes really excellent pizza, and you can have some whilst you watch the funtimes! Also, who can resist “Gypsy Folk Punk Clowns?” Full disclosure: I won’t be at this show ’cause I’m going camping this weekend. BUT YOU CAN (be at this show, in the audience).

Fools Play May Day Riots this Saturday!

Fools Play May Day Riots: April 30

It’ll be a LAUGH riot. A LAUGH riot.

This Saturday, April 30th, is the next episode of Fools Play Improv. In this episode all the Fools will collaborate to create an improvised city, and a laugh riot will ensue. A LAUGH riot.

If you don’t think that sounds impressive, well, (1) SHAME on you, and (2) it is an idea actually inspired by some important, not-at-all-made-up social work done in “the turbulent 1960s.” In fact, there was recently an actual, real-life TED talk about this topic that you should watch now because it is a completely legitimate TED Talk in every way and in no way a fake one or anything like that:

So you should definitely see Fools Play Improv this weekend.

I can't emphasize this enough: It'll be a LAUGH riot. LAUGH riot.

I can’t emphasize this enough: It’ll be a LAUGH riot. LAUGH riot.

See Me In the South Sound Improv Comedy Festival Tomorrow (Saturday), and Also In the Newspaper Again!

3rd Annual Improv Comedy Festival

The festival starts tonight (Friday), but I won’t be innit until tomorrow (Saturday)

So this Saturday night (April 2nd), Fools Play Improv won’t be having a show in Tacoma as is their habit, they’ll be venturing back down to their old stomping grounds of Olympia to be a part of the 3rd Annual South Sound Improv Comedy Festival there!

We’re one of four troupes performing that evening, so we’ll only get a wee bit o’ stage time (plus we’ll be in a big all-troupes mash-up at the end of the show), but if’n you’re in the area you should stop by and see all the funny!

PLUS there’s a big ol’ photo of me (AGAIN) in The News Tribune in the article that talks about both Fools Play (and our now-over Improv & Dragons event) and the Festival!

HELLZ YEAH I’M IN THE NEWSPAPER AGAIN!
