Wanna Fool Around Again?

Well, my dears, it’s nearing the end of the semester, and that means there’s only a few more Friday nights to fill with Improv Comedy. So…

Get ready for the Ship of Fools’ Last Performance of 2013!

This has been a great year for the Fools. We have been very happy with how much we’ve been able to collaborate on with other troupes, and we have loved all of the support from our friends and fans. We want to send this year out right, with one more spectacular performance!

WHEN: Friday, November 22nd
TIME: 8:30 PM
WHERE: Matthews Hall, Room 210

So let’s fool around one more time, just because we can.

Fools Abound!

 If you thought that you wouldn’t be able to satiate your Foolish Improv needs for the month of September you were WRONG!

Come spend a jovial night with us, The Ship of Fools, on September 20th! Nights like these only happen about once a blue moon, so it’s important that you celebrate any moment where improv comedy is readily, freely, available.

When: Friday, September 20th

Time: 8:30 p.m.

Where: Matthews Hall, Room 210

Price: Free

Did you catch the part where I said it costs $0.00? Because that means free. It’s free.

Again, we are so excited for this semester, and the coming year!

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!

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.
