Comedy does not have to be crude. At least, this is the premise that co-creative directors Tim Kanter and Jeremy Zeller operate under during their Clean Up Comedy improv shows. In 90-minute, family-friendly performances, Tim, Jeremy, and an ensemble cast of comedians build jokes and etch out scenes from audience suggestions. A diverse group, the troupe of actors, writers, amateur magicians, and pie-eating contestants makes up routines on the spot from seemingly disparate words or phrases. Each show’s audience fuels the comedic fodder with shouted suggestions or even by helping on stage, keeping every performance as fresh as a backtalking daisy.
