2014 – 2015 Year in Review

We have been super busy this year. We have performed all over the Greater Lafayette area and beyond. Our members have juggled both their school work, and performing on a monthly basis. We come from so many disciplines: engineering, agriculture, pharmacy, education, biology, etc.. Yet we come together to perform improv comedy for the Purdue University student body. We couldn’t be more proud of each other.

But of course, we wouldn’t do any of this if it weren’t for you guys, our friends and fans.

Thank you so much for all of your support over this past year! It’s been a great one! We hope to see many of you when we return in the fall, and for many years to come!

Final Open Forum of the Semester

Well, things are finally starting to wind down on Purdue University’s campus. Students are sending a few things home with their parents, roommates are sick of seeing each other, and the promise of summer is only two short weeks away.

That means it’s time for one final “Huzzah!”
The Final Open Forum of the Semester is here!

Friday, April 26th, join the Purdue Improvisation Club and the Ship of Fools in saying ‘goodbye’ for the summer! 7:00 in Beering Hall, room 2280. It promises to be a night full of awesome surprises, and extra fun.

What could we possibly mean by ‘awesome surprises and extra fun’? You’ll have to come out to Open Forum to find out!

Also, we’re currently taking a poll to see how people feel about Open Forum, and how the club is run in general. We’d love for you to fill it out and give us some feedback.

We’ll see you on Friday!

Ship of Fools Present: Lucky and Chaos Walk the Plank

The ship is getting a little too crowded. The Fools have decided it’s time to graduate a couple of members. They will be sent out to spread laughter and joy without the help of their fellow pirates. Lucky and Chaos, prepare to walk the plank!

Matthews Hall, Room 210

If you’re not fans of mushy goo, don’t read on. But be sure to join the Facebook Event!

Luke and Adam: You are both wonderful people and performers, and we love you both very much. We wish that we could stay with us forever, but we realize it’s time to go out on your own. Though life will take you all over the seven seas, we will keep in contact, and remember all the amazing times we have had.

We wish you the best of luck and know you will do great things with any of the endeavors you both pursue.


The Foolish Crew

Keep Calm! We’re Back!

That’s right, folks, we’re performing at the end of March not once but TWICE! Two days in a row, in fact.

As we go into battle with the last half of the semester, the morale of the Purdue Student Body is at an all time low. The memories of Spring Break seem a distant memory, and the promises of Summer Break appear only in dreams. We must bring joy back to campus!

Call in the reinforcements: The Ship of Fools!

Friday, March 29th, at 8:30 pm, watch your favorite seafaring pirates bring laughter and fun back to Purdue! Come to Matthews Hall, room 210 for all the improv fun!

And, as usual, it’s all FREE! Join the Facebook event!

But that’s not all!

We’ve been asked to perform in a joint performance with two of our friends, One Size Fits All and Ad Liberation! How could we say ‘no’?
