OKC Improv is starting a new run of improvised comedy right before the New Year.
On Saturday, OKC Improv kicks off its winter run of shows at the Broadway Theater, 1613 N. Broadway Ave. Shows are at 8 and 10 p.m.
Saturday’s 8 p.m. show features OKC’s longest standing troupe, Everybody and Their Dog, the improvised Broadway-worthy ballads of Off Book: Musical Morsels and the delightful audience interrogating duo of Good Cop/Nice Cop.
At the 10 p.m. show, get ready for the zany Whose Line Is It Anyway?-style games from Take One Productions and the acclaimed silent comedy masterminds of ZOOM!. Headlining the 10 p.m. set is the nationally renowned, freestyle rapping duo Twinprov, real-life twins Buck and Clint Vrazel.
Show prices are $15 for the 8 p.m. show and $12 for the 10 p.m. An OKC Improv show is always free the week of your birthday (with ID). Tickets can be purchased online at http://www.okcimprov.com. Shows regularly sell out, so advance ticket purchases are encouraged. Performances continue every Saturday night through January 26.
In addition to performances, OKC Improv also offers classes, so everyone can learn the fun! Three levels of classes begin Saturday and run six weeks. Visit http://www.okcimprov.com for information on each level and how to register.
Since 2009, OKC Improv has been entertaining and delighting local audiences with dynamic improvisation and sketch comedy shows. Oklahoma’s improv scene has exploded in growth, from five performing groups in 2009 to more than 40 today.
Local improv troupes create original, never-before-seen comedy shows based on audience suggestions. It’s never the same spectacle twice, which led The Oklahoman to rave that OKC Improv “puts Oklahoma City on the map for comedy.”
OKC Improv is a nonprofit community arts organization dedicated to building a thriving and sustainable improv scene by providing performance opportunities for area improvisers and by working to raise awareness and understanding of improv as an art form through publicity, outreach and education.For more information on the OKC Improv show schedules, performer information and classes, visit http://www.okcimprov.com.
