Next up is the United Nations of Improv:
Dream Interpretation and Homework Evasion
The UN tackled its most difficult pair of issues yet. What do dreams mean and how do you avoid homework?
Dreams can lead a man to the voice of God and/or to scald his son with hot coffee. Dreams can be a restful momentary death and/or a hallucination involving snake penises. Dreams can be prophecy and/or an excuse to do whatever you want. Therefore, use your dreams as a map to understand your own desires, and then inflict them on everyone else. Especially if your son refuses to agree with your world views or has a snake penis. The UN takes no responsibility for the consequences of your actions or cost of bail.
Freud’s work on the homework issue is embarrassingly lacking, so the UN came to its conclusions based on its own experience and knowledge. No one is going to believe your mother died yesterday, so tell your professor the truth: you had better shit to do. If she thinks that’s disrespectful, try a funny accent. If that doesn’t fly, tell her you’re the president of your apartment and you refuse to outsource your homework, but can’t get to it until homeland security is secure. The UN takes no responsibilities for the consequences of your presidency and drop in polls.
If you have a problem, come to our meetings – every Friday. If you don’t have a problem, you’re a liar and your problem is lying.
Fridays at 10:30pm. $8
TIX available at 206-679-3271 or at https://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/174920
Then on Saturday night is Blank Slate (Improv Comedy with Fat Kid Magic)
Ever watch a play and think you could make it a lot more interesting? Ever get frustrated at the stupid choices characters make?
Blank Slate gives you a chance! The characters are defined and developed with suggestions from the audience. Then, the characters are turned loose in a play that is designed by the audience itself.
Fat Kid Magic is Unexpected Production’s long form ensemble. Specializing in longer, more theatrical comedy improvisation, Fat Kid Magic performs around Seattle, including Saturdays at Odd Duck Studio at 10:30 and Sundays at the Market Theater in Pike Place Market!
Blank Slate is a long form developed by Randy Dixon at Unexpected Productions, home of Seattle Theatresports, and 28 years of theatrical comedy improv!
Tickets $10 at the door! $8 for Students/Seniors/Military/Veterans/Union Members/TPS/Sandbox Members and FREE for SAG/AEA/AFTRA members.
Advance TIX available at 206-679-3271 or at https://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/173659
