Tempe Improv’s center stage hosts a cavalcade of troupes and legendary comedians, each presented in front of brick and a sign that proclaims “IMPROV,” like a glowing command from the comedy demigods. The night’s one-two punch includes Myq Kaplan and Roy Wood Jr., who team up to extract guffaws from the audience’s stomach like a burglar stealing gold from a baby. Last Comic Standing finalist and late-night regular Myq Kaplan strikes funny bones by ruminating on his own grammatical geekiness and searching for his glasses in the ocean. Roy Wood Jr.’s credits include appearances on Def Comedy Jam, Late Show with David Letterman, and Comedy Central’s Premium Blend.
Tempe Improv’s stage has hosted comedy masters such as Tommy Chong, Kids in the Hall’s Dave Foley, and the dulcet-voiced Gilbert Gottfried. Before and during the show, guests can pull eats from the dinner menu featuring appetizers such as breaded calamari dunked in spicy cocktail sauce and mountains of nachos peppered with succulent chicken.
