It's been awhile...

So I know it's been a long time since I actually posted, but I've decided to get back into the swing of things. I feel like I've let a lot of things fall by the wayside, and I'm looking to pick at least some of those things up again.

I figure as good a time to start as any would be to hype my friend Zach's comedy group, ImprovBroadway. Full disclosure, I was given a free seat in exchange for this post, but I still left them a tip after the show, because they are indeed worth the money! They've had several different venues over the years, starting out in a piano store, then moving from there to the Covey Center for the  Arts. Now they have their own studio in Provo. The theatre is a bit smaller than the Covey Center, but I think it works better for audience participation. For example, at the last show I attended, they pulled a date couple (who had been dating for a while) from the audience and asked them to describe how they met and their first date. Then they re-enacted with Shakespearean language, and a few other artistic touches.

As you may have guessed from the name, ImprovBroadway is an improv comedy show where no two productions are the same. Each show consists of improvised scenes, many of which involve audience participation, and an on-the-spot musical production. Like  Who's Line is it Anyway?, they're good at coming up with songs at the spur of the moment, and they play off each other wonderfully. Unlike Who's Line, they keep their comedy clean, so it's safe for kids, and safe for a first date. They remind me a lot of Studio C in that respect.

So if your in the Utah County and want to see something fun, check out ImprovBroadway. They even teach improv classes!
