Humor Artists at Purdue!

The Ship of Fools are pleased to announce that we will be hosting Notre Dame’s premiere improv comedy group, The Humor Artists, here at Purdue University!
We are so excited to work with this very talented group!

WHEN:
Saturday, March 29th

WHERE:
Stanley Coulter, Room 239

TIME:
8:00 P.M.

The Humor Artists, also known simply as HA, is the premier improvisational comedy group of Notre Dame’s campus. The group is made up of a combination of undergraduate and graduate students from both Notre Dame and Saint Mary’s College. While back in their natural habitat, the group performs short form improv at the Legends Nightclub, the Carey Auditorium, and Washington Hall.

The Ship of Fools is a … well, you know what we do. If you don’t, come out to this show to find out!

Now, now, I know what you’re going to say. “But, Fools, don’t you mean ‘Friday’?!? Your shows are always on Friday! And what about MTHW 210?

With us hosting a group from another university, Saturday works better with our busy school schedules. After-all, we do this funny stuff for free. We need jobs when we’re done entertaining you all, so classes are kinda important.

As for Matthews Hall, it was, simply, already booked when we decided to have our friends at Purdue. It’s okay, though, because I guarantee we’ll be back in MTHW 210 shortly thereafter. Possibly even the following week. I’m just sayin’.

So join the Facebook event for our evening of funny with Notre Dame’s Humor Artists!

WHEN:

Friday, February 28th
8:30 PM
WHERE:

To watch FANTASTIC improv!

Hailing from The Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre, the most renowned comedy theatre and school in the nation, the UCB TourCo cast is hand-picked from the best improv comedians in New York and Los Angeles to put on an hour of completely unscripted comedy that is truly awesome in every sense of the word.

The UCB TourCo represents the “next-wave” in comedy, proven by the fact that in the past the group has counted Jack McBrayer (30 Rock), Horatio Sanz (Saturday Night Live), Bobby Moynihan (Saturday Night Live), Ellie Kemper (The Office), Rob Riggle (The Daily Show), and Zach Woods (The Office) among its ranks.

All of that amazing-ness, and the Purdue Improv Club is hosting it! Doesn’t that make us pretty amazing, too? We like to think so.

End November Right!

November is coming to a close. Refrigerators are full of leftovers from Thanksgiving, students are getting anxious for the upcoming winter break, and preparations for the approaching holidays are underway. But one thing is missing: An improv comedy show!


The Ship of Fools are performing on November 30th at 8:30 pm in Matthews 210! They’ve performed only a few times this semester publicly, and want one more show before going into hibernation for the beginning of winter.

As many people know, Fridays are the day of the week for Open Forum, where anyone can try their hand at improv. So what will become of Open Forum? It’s still happening! Earlier in the day, even.

At 6:30, in BRNG 2280, try your hand at improv comedy until 8:15, and then head over to Matthews 210 to watch The Ship of Fools!

It’s the last night of November, and it is FILLED with improv! Now that’s how you end a month properly.
