Saturday April 5th
7:30PM – Dual Duel March Madness Finals ($8)
This Saturday’s early show is the Finals for the 2014 Dual Duel March Madness competition. In a normal Dual Duel show, two duos face off in comedy competition for your laughs performing scenes based on your suggestions. This Friday’s 7:30 pits the winning teams against each other in a short-form showdown, but this Saturday the 2 winning teams move on to this main event. The Finals is sure to entertain while using the applause and laughter from you the audience to separate the winners from the almost winners. Come out this Saturday night and change the course of history!
The past month’s CageMatches have differed from the normal model of “2 teams enter, the winning team remains for a new challenger” as we’ve been in the midst of our March Madness CageMatch Tournament. Well that is coming to a close this Saturday with 3 teams coming together to be crowned Alchemy’s 2014 long-form improv champions. We’ve got three teams that have already won one CageMatch to get here.
Team 1: The many thought-lines, pathways, and possibilities of Detours
Team 2: The boys are back in the game in the all-male Himprov
Team 3: The skinny, slender and tender members of Slimprov, Harrison and Ben*
*Ben Burris will not be performing in this week’s Slimprov month because of ongoing allegations of performance enhancers, so Benny Parks will be playing opposite of Harrison Brookie.
