COME BE A PART OF THE SHOW!!!
Improv Comedy by EIGHT IS NEVER ENOUGH is the perfect way to welcome back your students. Our show has played every type of campus event including Mains Stage and Late Nite Comedy Series, Welcome Weekend, Orientation, Preview weekend, and Frat Parties. We even represented the Pan Hellenic Council at a University of Maryland College Park campus wide event performing 5 shows in one day, festival style.
We cannot tell you what the show will be about because your audience dictates the direction of every show. Our MC opens the program with a brief introduction to Improv and our show while he/she warms-up the crowd. Then immediately the cast breaks into song – an upbeat JIG based on audience suggestion. The next game would be Sound Effects, where two audience members are invited onstage to support two actors performing an original scene – again based on audience suggestions. The show continues in this manner for 30-75 minutes, as per client needs. The shows climax is usually FREEZE FRAME, (See Montclaire State University picture) where we get as many students on stage as possible to help create a human slide show. Show ends with another uptempo song such as the Blues or Hip Hop selection.
Generally we present “clean” adult comedy (PG-13), as many of our shows are school sponsored events at state or religious schools. There was that one Charter House at Princeton University – we will call that Don’t Ask Don’t Tell – that resembled Animal House The Movie.
