The third Thursday of every month Big Blue Door presents Charlottesville’s only monthly longform improv show at C’ville Coffee, and the third Thursday of February will feature of our winter shows, The Helix and Sleepover! It’s 70 minutes of awesome comedy starting at 7pm, Thursday, February 18th! All for only $5!
The Helix evolved from a form called ‘Nautilus’ created by former improv coach and current Daily Show-writer Alex Marino. Originally a practice exercise for improv group Hell Buffalo in New York City, then a practice exercise for Big Blue Door’s Smallprov run two years ago, this January Big Blue Door’s own Larry Goldstein, Debby Prum, Max Hoecker, Deborah Arenstein, Will May, John Lawrence, Melissa Wender, Ryan Wender, and Jason Megill will present the world premiere of the Helix as a stand-alone show! The Helix features location-based scenes created in an unfolding sequence.
Sleepover was created by famed improv guru, Armando Diaz, for a New York improv group called Mother, and brought to Charlottesville this January by Big Blue Door’s own Shawn Hirabayashi, JP Riggle, Nauder Namaky, Brian Weisbrod, Kirk Martini, Finn Mehigan, and Erik Swanson. The Sleepover is intensive-character-based, theatrical comedy (Or comedic theater?) in which each performer creates a unique character entirely from scratch and plays that character through multiple scenes and combinations!
