Even though it was founded just two years ago, Huge Theater hit the ground riffing, quickly becoming one of the Twin Cities’ favorite hot spots for unscripted hilarity. Voted Best Theater for Comedy by the Minnesota Monthly in 2011, the humor hub buzzes six nights a week with a packed calendar of quick-witted mirth.
Its veteran cast specializes in the daunting art of extemporaneous long-form improv, taking the stage every Monday night for Show X, in which the players MacGyver together unprepared scenes to form a cohesive story as unpredictable as the daily lottery that determines the weather. Huge Wednesdays often feature musical acts and touring improv squads, whereas Thursday’s Space Jam beckons burgeoning improvisers to test their imaginative mettle. To cap off the workweek, Friday spotlights three performances of unhinged zaniness, as top-tier performers stir up chuckles at Throwback Night and The Bearded Men go for burly laughs. Between fits of guffaw-instigated cottonmouth, audiences can lubricate their chuckle chassis with craft beers.
