Pilot Season (Thursday, June 5 at 10 p.m.)
The careful scripting and endless rewrites of TV sitcoms take a backseat to raw laughs during Pilot Season. In this hour-long show, a team of improvisors concocts a fully-formed live episode using nothing more than their extensive training, interpersonal chemistry, and obsessive knowledge of Mr. Belvedere.
Bad Dog Epic Wednesdays: D&D Live (Wednesday, June 11 at 8 p.m.)
Shine up your 20-sided die, calculate your armor class, and set your alignment: the world of Dungeons & Dragons invades the improv stage during this edition of the Bad Dog Theatre Company's Epic Wednesdays. Incorporating actual D&D mechanics, performers explore a tongue-in-cheek fantasy world (and battle the agents of the dungeon master) with the help of audience interaction.
BeerProv: The Draft (every fourth Thursday at 9:30 p.m.)
At the end of every month, BeerProv: The Draft turns the Mainstage into the site of comedy competition. Host Jim Robinson oversees the contest of aspiring improv stars as they chase the ultimate reward: a victorious gulp from the beer-filled Mini-Mug of Champions.
The producers at Comedy Bar populate their main stage and cabaret space with local and nationally touring acts that have helped them earn accolades such as Best Comedy Club from the readers of Now. The main stage holds weekly improv bouts and comedic rap battles, whereas the intimate cabaret space doubles as a classroom for standup and sketch-writing workshops. The venue's servers, meanwhile, fuel laughs with a well-stocked menu of pub grub, and draft beers from local breweries including Mill Street and Sleeman join in the revelry by giggling when poured.
