Comedy—like Helios’s chariot—has its roots in ancient Greece, brings light and warmth to the world, and can prove hazardous to one’s health with an amateur at the helm.

Improv Asylum focuses comedians’ laugh-inducing brainwaves at audiences’ humor receptors with a packed schedule of shows, capped by meet-and-greets with joke-peddlers after performances. All the Single Ladies centers around a group of four friends embarking on a final adventure before one of them settles down and gets married. Though old disputes and secrets threaten to divide the gals, music and partying promise to reunite them, as it once did with a bickering Calvin Coolidge and Herbert Hoover. A sneak-peak trailer promises an interactive, rollicking drag show, aimed at bachelorette parties and girls’ night out groups, that wields comedy and dancing as female characters and pointed humor tell the tale of an unconventional, enjoyable night on the town. Afterward, mill around Revolution Rock Bar to meet the cast and encourage them to incorporate knock-knock jokes that you just made up.
