Zenprov Comedy - A Bloody Funny Halloween

October 31
Old Town Center for the Arts

Thursday, October 31, 7:00 pm

$12 advance, $15 door

Where’s that spooky laughter coming from? Look no further than Zenprov Comedy's Bloody Funny Halloween on Thursday, Oct. 31 at 7:00 pm at Old Town Center for the Arts in downtown Cottonwood. What’s so funny about ghosts, goblins, zombies and Halloween? It’s all in the improv.

Much like the TV show “Whose Line Is It Anyway?” Zenprov Comedy performs fast-paced, improvised comedic scenes created in the moment-always based on audience suggestions. Unlike sketch or standup comedy, nothing is scripted or rehearsed beforehand. Join us and giggle like a ghoul!

“We love performing improv shows near Halloween,” Zenprov actor Derek Dujardin commented. “There are so many scary good subjects for spontaneous comedy. At our last show, we had the Wicked Witch and Glenda from the Wizard of Oz compete against each other in a mock political debate. They took real questions from the audience and answered them like the characters would. It was hysterical! Maybe will do that again—or we’ll try something new like Mitt Zombie vs. The Obamanator.”

Dujardin also said they’ll perform an old audience favorite Haunted House Sound Effects where the audience members will create the sound effects for a haunted house and the actors will have to justify the sounds (good or bad) into an established scene.

“We hope some kids come to this show. We keep everything PG-13,” said Dujardin. “There’s nothing worse than what you might see on a Simpson’s Halloween Special.”

Zenprov Comedy embraces the Del Close method of improv acting, which emphasizes the group mind that mysteriously develops during a performance. Miraculously, the player’s minds fuse together to create a super mind where they practically finish each other’s sentences, and often do. Laughter ensues.

Zenprov cast includes improv veterans Tony Carito, Derek Dujardin and Shaeri Richards (formerly from Abandoned Minds), Chris Redish (formerly from Jesterz Improv), and rising stars Mike Burdick, Bonnie Green, Betty Testa, Linda Roemer, Laura Lizak and Mary Carder.
