Extreme Elimination Improv Challenge

I took an Improv class in college. I was never any good at it. I thought I could be witty and come up with phrases that audiences would remember for lifetimes ahead. They just remembered I froze in front of them trying to find a word that rhymed with banana.

But watch the professionals do it...not me. The Extreme Elimination Improv Challenge is happening on April 2nd at Dad's Garage. It is going to be a battle of cunning and odd comments. You'll have a large group of improvisers start the show, right? They'll be paired up randomly and will perform games and scenes based on your suggestions! Once they've finished the scene/game, you'll get a chance to vote on who you enjoyed the most. And the second place winners (we don't say losers here) will be eliminated until there is one improviser left standing.

I've been told that the show is a bit crude, so fair warning. Actually there was a warning when I read up on it: Language, Violence.

Goodness, who knew improv could be so brutal? For more information, check out their site.
