EVENT DETAILS

FRIDAY, July 30th - 9:30pm
Neutrino Video Projects All-Star Invitational - $8
The Neutrino Video Projects is a completely improvised movie shot, edited, screened, and scored while you watch it. Invited to the HBO US Comedy Arts Festival and awarded "Improv Ensemble of the Year" at the Chicago Improv Festival, Neutrino continues to expand the concept of improv into the video world. Neutrino has satellite groups in Seattle, DC, and Chicago whose cast members will be joining them to present a Multi-city Project before heading out to Enigburgh Scotland for a month long run at the prestigious Gilded Baloon.

FRIDAY, July 30th - 11:00pm
Sickest F***ing Stories I Ever Heard - $8
THE SICKEST F***ING STORIES I EVER HEARD is comedy verite where five performers sit for a poker game vying to win some real money at cards and exchange stories and barbs. The stories may be perverse, gross or twisted but they will all in some way be...sick! Think The Weir, only more outrageous. Originated in Chicago, Sickest F***ing Stories is produced by arrangement with WNEP Theater, Chicago.
