SHOW DESCRIPTIONS:
 
The Frisky Disco | An improvised soap opera set inside a small town disco where characters plot and engage in affairs, deceit, and revenge in a montage of scenes edited by the tech director.
Two Gentlemen | As "Two Gentlemen", Greg and Ari create comedic worlds in a free-form style that embraces risks and honesty. Using a fast-paced, kinetic and seamless style Greg and Ari remain "on the brink of discovery" with their audience ensuring that every show results in a shared experience of something unexpected. Two Gentlemen is quickly becoming a destination show with a voice all its own.
Aeropuerto | A group of veteran improvisers, stand-ups, and sketch comedians who conspire to create a fun, high-energy longform show using nothing but an audience suggestion and a guest monologist.
How Are Things At Home | Oh, hello, audience! Have a seat; We need to talk. Now, you’ve been acting a little odd lately, and we have to assume that something’s going on at home. Is it your Uncle Jerry again? The one who smells like gasoline and won’t let you look in the freezer? Perhaps mom and dad revived that old argument about “whether or not you were an accident?” Or is it your Grandma, who isn’t “racist” per say, but keeps hissing at people of color? It’s ok. We’ve all got weird families too, so your secrets are safe with us. Us, and the crowd of people who’ve come to watch us perform a long-form, improvised show using the material you’ve provided us regarding your dysfunctional family. So, what we’re saying here is that your secrets aren’t safe. Not in the slightest.
Come Again? | Come Again? blurs the lines between improv, music, and standup as Mickey McCauley entertains the audience with a unique, off-beat, one-man performance involving songs, jokes, diatribes, love, looping, and additional jokes. Anything can end up as part of the act, and most of it will.
8th Grade Field Trip | This show will be about 7 "kids" and their experiences on their first time away from their parents, in a different city with their friends, and two chaperons. The show will be about how the characters interact with each other as well as the city. There will be flirtation, pushing limits with authority figures, and of course, joking with each other.
The Clown Show | Clowns aren't just for creepy kids parties. Clowning is actually a broad form of physical improvisation. Full of sublime failure, Red Noses explores the artistic and comedic side of traditional clowning. Watch scenes unfold as the clown enters a familiar scenario only to have every aspect of it go fantastically wrong. It's a colorful, kinetic, high-energy celebration of the idiot inside all of us.
The Stable | The Stable is your favorite boy band, your junior high school bff, and your hot landscaper who for some reason never takes his shirt off. We're that bug-eyed Starbucks barista you try to avoid and the Swedish taxi driver you have on speed dial. But mostly, The Stable is ImprovBoston veterans Jacey Bokuniewicz and Katie Leeman parading their never-ending stable of very stable and very unstable characters for you, but mostly with you.
The Caterpillar | Longform team Aeropuerto invites audience members to perform in an hour-long 'Moth' style live speaking event. Each week will center around a theme announced in advance. Speakers chosen at random from the audience will give a series of short monologues interpreted in improvised scenes by Aeropuerto.
Arm Candy | Emily Holland is moving to LA in September. Emily Holland loves two person shows & has performed too many of them with some of her favorite people in the whole world. Also, she's super selfish. Come watch Holland & her duo partners perform one last time before she leaves forever. And have a superdumbfuntime!
