The rumors are true! This Saturday, the one and only Kevin McDonald, founder of Kids In the Hall, will join us for one night only!
With a mix of standup, sketch and improv this night is going to be a fun evening! Get your tickets ahead of time, because we expect this to sell out.
Saturday, July 21st, @ 9pmGet Tickets!
Kevin is also teaching an Improv to Sketch intensive workshop on Saturday at 10am. He’ll go over how to write sketches through improvisation – just like the Kids in the Hall used to do. But not only that! You will do a show that night with Kevin, in front of a real live audience, performing the sketches you wrote that day. Exciting? Kevin thinks so. Of course Kevin is very boring and thinks chairs are exciting. Kevin will talk about the secrets of writing comedy sketches (hopefully their secrets and not lies) and teach you the Kids in the Hall process of coming up with an idea and turning it into a sketch through improvisational rehearsal.
You will be performing and writing with Kevin supervising, all day. And that night, you put on a show at 9pm. There are still a *few* spots open, so register ASAP!Learn from Kevin McDonald!
