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!

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!

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.
