The Mirth-O-Matics, Monterey County’s stellar improvisational comedy troupe, returns to the Carl Cherry Center Saturday, April 8th at 7:30 p.m. Tickets $20 at Brown Paper Tickets.
A Mirth-O-Matics evening of theater games features a company of actors, a bare stage and a lot of ideas whose outlines are about as fixed as liquid mercury. Sometimes it starts with an unlikely combination of characters placed in equally improbable situations: Whoopie cushions, politicians, bagel salesmen and roller derbies can all find their way into a Mirth-O-Matics’ skit. Other skits are prompted by the audience, who are encouraged to suggest scenes.
The troupe will be offering a free improvisational acting workshop for beginners from 1-3:00pm the day of the performance. As space is limited, advance reservations are strongly recommended: (831) 236-3032.
