Upright Citizens Brigade TourCo at Purdue!

The Purdue Improv Club is pleased as punch to announce that we will be hosting the Upright Citizens Brigade TourCo here at Purdue University!


Friday, February 28th
8:30 PM
Fowler Hall in Stewart
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.

Join the Facebook event and invite everyone you know to it!

Final 2013 Open Forum!

The fall 2013 semester is coming to a close! With it, another successful semester of Purdue Improv Club fun! Now, this Friday is all about having a good time, and celebrating such a great fall. As always, everyone is welcome!


The Purdue Improv Club has been really proud of how involved our members have become in the improv community! Our Saturday workshops, run primarily by Kyle Reeves, have been flourishing, and we are seeing some great things from attendees. Four of our active members have audition for, and successfully joined, two improv troupes on campus this semester alone. Billy Louie and Emily Gruss, who joined our very own Ship of Fools, and Jason Taylor with Mohammad Abdullah Najam joined our cohorts over in Ad Liberation! And, now more than ever, Open Forum is a stress free environment for anyone to try improv comedy!

There is a Facebook event page devoted to making sure everyone has a blast! Please post any and all suggestions you have for games that should be played, either on that event page, or post a comment here.

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!
