Virtual Duo Comedy Showcase, Wed.  8:30

The Duo Comedy Improv Showcase is Seattle’s ONLY improv open mic. This Wednesday, 9/16, features Unexpected Productions ensemble members, Ron & Michelle Hippe, live at the Market Theater. Tune in at 8:30pm. It will be streaming on Twitch and UP’s Facebook Live.

Each show features multiple two-person teams doing what they do best: creating spontaneous scenes on the fly that are so hilarious, quick-witted and perfectly constructed, it’s hard to believe they are made up on the spot. Using suggestions from the audience to fuel the funny fire, these death-defying acts of improvised hilarity will have you rolling in the aisle.

Campfire: Improvised Ghost Stories Online, Fri./Sat. 8:30 9/25-10/31

Take a trip back to the campfires of our childhood when talented storytellers spin spooky stories around the fire. Our improvisers gather true-life events from YOU and turn them into improvised campfire stories and hilarious scenes.

Some of the stories are scary and some are funny, and all of them will have you perched on the edge of your seat.

Submit your spooky story for a performance of Campfire: Improvised Ghost Stories. At each performance, several stories will be chosen by the host to provide the improvisers stories to inspire the scenes. Share your own true ghost, haunted, creepy story or unexplainable event by submitting your video to http://stories.upimprov.org.

Stories will be chosen in advance (but not shared with the performers). If your story is chosen, you will get a free household ticket for the night. So please make sure to pick the nights that you are available.
