Live Shows

IMPROVology/Zoological Radio Live Tours and IMPROV Theater Shows

IMPROVology is a live, family-friendly mashup of science and comedy. Mix comedians with animal experts, add cool stories about fascinating critters, and everyone ends up happy as clams. It’s “Whose Line is it Anyway?” meets a “TED Talk,” where world-class comedians pros go ape and monkey around, but no one gets thrown to the lions. We hope. The winner is up to local celebrity judges and the audience! This is a family-friendly event, with food and drinks available for purchase.
Doors open at 7 p.m.; trouble begins at 7:30 p.m. Check out the IMPROVology video.
