Following the tale, the comedy players form improvised scenes taken from various details in the story, crafting an extemporaneous event in front of their audience. On Tuesdays, Comedy Beast descends upon nearby eatery The Den as both local and national standup comedians unleash honed sets during a sidesplitting 75-minute extravaganza.

Co-founded by veteran laugh masters Tami Nelson and Chris Trew, the theater brings improv into the spotlight, unleashing a cache of seasoned actors who dazzle with quick thinking and leave onlookers happier than a robot with a recently installed emotion chip. :m]]
