Masters of Improv: Donovan Workun and Mark Meer are Masters of Improv, both upper and lower cased, and every Thursday they do their thing.

“The show is a pressure cooker,” explains Workun. “It’s fast paced and high energy with tons of jokes. Mark and myself jump in and out of character to include the audience in every scene. We’ve made moonshine for orphans, and turned an at-home financial adviser’s day into a superhero adventure. From start to finish, we keep piling on the suggestions, and challenge each other to make the scenes harder and more hilarious, from Mark forcing me to improvise poems, to me making Mark monologue an entire film noir.”

Seating is limited, so book now!
