COMEDY LAB ACT DESCRIPTIONS
 
OCTOBER
 
10/5 - Magic the Gathering the show, Party of Ones, BuffyProv!: An Improvised Buffy the Vampire Slayer Parody
 
Party of Ones
Bright Eyes is one guy. So is Nine Inch Nails. If bands can do it, why not comedians? Come see the I in "team" as four of Boston's best sketch teams, each rolling 1 deep, bring you their unique brand of solo comedy. The Fran Show (Francesca Villa), Good Loser (Laura Clark), The Reckus (Steve Delfino) and Travesties (Eric Frieden) bring you Party of Ones, a romp through the collaboration and teamwork within their own minds.
 
BuffyProv!: An Improvised Buffy the Vampire Slayer Parody
Into every generation an improv show is born. Welcome to Sunnydale, a lovely town with its own portal straight to hell. Join Buffy, everyone's favorite cheerleader turned vampire slayer, as she battles the forces of evil alongside her trusty team: Willow, the witch who wore cat sweaters way before any hipster, Xander, a permanent resident of the friendzone, and Giles, an older british gentleman who hangs out with teenagers in graveyards. Together they will conquer hoards of the undead and cope with the problems of teenage life. So throw on your leather duster, sharpen your stakes and prepare to be slayed… with comedy!
 
10/12 - The Quarry Presents: Peak Strata, The Weird Show ft. Dan the Man & Hugh the Goo, Wes Hazard Presents
 
The Quarry Presents: Peak Strata
Improvisers of The Quarry put their bodies on the line to create tangible environments for their teammates to play in, morphing from one location to another. Watch as we inhabit not only a slew of fun characters but also the physical world in which they live. Will prolonged awkward pretzeling inevitably lead to an insatiable craving for Dijon mustard? Only time will let you know this information.
 
The Weird Show ft. Dan the Man & Hugh the Goo
You already know improv to be spur-of-the-moment; now watch it become totally stream-of-consciousness as two self-described “wackadoos” bring you comedy from another dimension! You may see anthropomorphic tigers discussing politics. You may get every line delivered as a freestyle rap. In the Weird Show, literally anything goes! If you are a fan of Tim and Eric or “Rick and Morty”, you will love Dan and Hugh!
 
Wes Hazard Presents
Wes Hazard goes deep into history, pop culture, & himself to deliver hilarious and brutally honest mixed-media presentations about subjects as big as race in America and as niche as the November 12, 1993 episode of Family Matters. You'll laugh, you'll tear up, you'll wonder how you never knew there were so many films in the Land Before Time Franchise. New topics and new laughs with every show!
 
10/19 - Michelle McNulty Vs. Bowls, Techical Error Presents: What's In A Name!, Heart|Beats
 
Michelle McNulty Vs. Bowls
If you know Michelle McNulty, you know that she is a pretty chill human being. She doesn't get worked up about much, but when she DOES get worked up, it's insanely entertaining. And she gets worked up about bowls. Watch as you see bowls presented to her and see her fly off the handle with love or hate but never indifference. She is passionate. She is furious. She is in love. About and with all different types of bowls.
 
Techical Error Presents: What's In A Name!
Technical Error is a diverse cast made up of students or recent alumni from the IB Comedy School who are hungry and passionate to perform. This format focuses on creating one-of-a-kind, hilarious characters with the aid of various methods of giving the characters names. While based in colorful and playful scenework, it is also a thoughtful conceit which leads the audience to ask what is really in a name, and how that informs the identity of the person who receives it.
 
Heart|Beats
Imagine the drama, love, and laughter of your favorite medical shows, remixed and recreated with all new episodes right before your eyes. You inspire the problem—our doctors will handle the rest.
