8:00PM – The 4 Humors : Improv from the Founders of Alchemy Comedy ($5)
The four founding members of Alchemy Comedy together form a team called The 4 Humors. Combining and weaving their collective 30 years of comedy experience into a format called the Double Date, the players will form four characters based loosely on interviews with audience members. This Friday also marks the triumphant return of founding member Meg Pierson to the Alchemy stage.
Friday’s second show features the all-star cast of Local Legends doing improv based on the stories of Director John Fagan. For 15 years John has been the director of the Upstate Shakespeare Festival, a summer long event with free, public performances of the comedies and tragedies of William Shakespeare. This year attendees can look forward to performances of Hamlet and the Comedy of Errors on the round wooden stage in Falls Park. John has also directed at several of the other theaters around town, but this Friday witness his first credit at the Alchemy Comedy Theater when he is our Local Legend.
As part of Meg’s return to the U.S. and to Alchemy, she will reclaim her position on the Local Legends team.
