Our friends at OTRimprov are once again producing an amazing improv festival featuring acts from all over the country: September 7th - 10th. We love the IF Cincy festival and showed our support by being a sponsor. IF Cincy has been so popular in years past that every show has sold out. So, buy your tickets as soon as they become available.
Wednesday September 7th features two teams that were incubated at Coincidence shows: What it Ain't and Killer B's. What it Ain't is the duo of Dylan Shelton and Erin Ward. They are playful, they are honest, and they have great chemistry. I worked with Dylan and Erin at Madcap Puppets one winter at the Cincinnati Zoo's Festival of Lights. It was apparent that they were both quick witted, genuine people. So happy to see them continue to play together.
Jon and I will perform on Thursday, September 8th at 7:30 as the Coincidence Improv house team! We will be doing the roadtrip form that had it's debut at Urban Artifact. Unfortunately, we will be missing Tatum who has an internship with Playhouse in the Park that takes priority. We're also excited to see our friend Chris Smyth perform with The Middle Child.
Friday September 9th is filled with headliners. Jon will be back on stage performing with all our friends in OTRimprov. You can expect OTRi to make joyful, high energy choices and to make the evening feel like a party. Friday will also be an evening of long-form improv. Several groups are visiting from Colin's alma mater iO in Chicago.
Saturday September 10th is going to be huge with workshops all day and performances at night. Brilliant improvisers Craig and Carla Cackowski will be performing as the duo Orange Tuxedo. You will want to see them. Also, I'm excited to see Stefan Gearhart, a friend from my college improv team (HappyGAS) who is performing with his Louisville team Damaged Goods. All you need to know about them is that you will be laughing during their show and smiling afterward. They are truly entertaining!
