Secret Promo Pic for the 25 1/2 IMPROV FEST.
Soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo.... we're still bubbling away on the exact details for 25.5 hour improv festival but here's how things look now:

October 22 - 23. We'll have normal Theatresports Shows at 1030 pm on 10/22 and 10/23. However, we're going all night and all day inbetween! Tim Goodwin was fine enough to put together a rough draft flyer which I'm going to share with y'all... It was supposed to be an X-Men like Superhero look - instead, like Tim said, it's more "Sly and the Family Stone". Well, it's a start!



9/23/05 - DAILY PERKS COFFEEHOUSE, see GCI perform a new LONGFORM improv SET. ~AWESOMENESS~

WE NEED YOUR HELP!
Ever want to help out Geva Comedy Improv in a free & easy way that only takes 5 minutes??

GREAT.

Well, City Newspaper is running their annual "Best of Rochester 2005" survey and we'd like to be all over it.
Again, Here is the link.

There are tons of categories that we feel could fit "Geva Comedy Improv" like:

27. Place to take the kids
29. Place to take your parents when they're visiting
31. Place for a first date
33. Place for a secret rendezvous
62. Blog (gevacomedyimprov.blogspot.com)
66. Place to see and be seen
70. Greater Rochester bragging point
76. Way to lure people to the area
79. Best-kept secret
100. Cheap thrill
106. Theater production of 2005 (name show/theater)
111. Place to meet a rich husband
117. Place to pick up a woman
118. Place to pick up a man
121. Way to spend $10

I'm sure you'll have some great answers for the other questions like "new slogan for Rochester" and "best place for sledding". CHECK IT OUT!

PLEASE. Could you take five minutes and drop our name a few times? The publicity would really help our new season and it doesn't cost you a penny! When you're done, leave us a comment so I can publicly adore you!! THANKS

Geva Comedy Improv - July 15 & July 16 - 1030 PM (COME!)
Image hosted by Photobucket.com

Hello.

Well, this weekend, Friday & Saturday night, there will some FANTASTIC
Geva Comedy Improv shows at Geva Theatre. This is the end of our
scheduled second season (but don't fret - we're returning in October
for more action! Plus a possible mystery August event) so if you want
give us a great send-off for the summer, please come... on... down!

WHERE: Geva Theatre, 75 Woodbury Blvd Rochester NY 14607
WHEN: Friday (7/15) and Saturday (7/16) at 10:30 PM, doors open at 930 PM.
HOW MUCH: Tickets for these AMAZING shows are only $7/night.
WHAT: Friday will be Theatre Sports, Saturday will be GORILLA Theatre.

(Adam Litz & I will be involved both nights. On Friday, I'll be
performing and Adam will be the guest host. On Saturday, we'll both
be competing in the unique Gorilla Theatre style.)

There will be prize giveaways, drink specials and tons of fun. It's a
terrific casual environment (no need to dress up!) and should prove to
be some hilarious entertainment.

Watch us try to spin your suggestions into fried nuggets of comedy
gold! Adults and kids of all ages are welcome to come.

To grab tickets in advance, call the Geva Box Office at 232-GEVA, stop
by Geva in person or contact me (Chris) and I can pick you up some
tickets!

Remember, if you've put off all season coming down to Geva then this
is your last BIG chance. Don't let the summer expire without having
been to a show! For those that have been before, this will sadly be
our farewell to two of our most beloved and talented improvisers:
Shawnda Urie (a.k.a. 1st Micetro Champ) and Chris Holden (a.k.a.
British Chris). Help us send them off to Philadelphia in a grand
fashion!

All the best and hope to see some of you down there this weekend!
