Addison Laugh Fest starts in just a few days, and we are ready to laugh until it hurts! “Howl with laughter at the antics of some of DFW’s best improv and sketch comedians at Addison Laugh Fest, held at the Addison Theatre Centre on Friday, Sept. 24, and Saturday, Sept. 25. The weekend features a series of shows and a workshop for budding improv comedians.”
The featured shows will start at 8 p.m. each night and will feature different comedians on stage. Rory Scholl will be hosting both nights. Rory was raised in Dallas but has since moved out to New York City and written a best-seller book.
The two-day comedy event will be at Addison Theatre Centre’s Karol Omlor Studio Theatre and will feature some of the DFW’s best improv and sketch comedians. On Friday night Rory will host a lineup that includes The Mash Em Ups, Coyote, and Sondheimlich Maneuver. On Saturday night, Scholl returns with a new lineup of comedians including Odd Goblin and The Cinnamon Bears, Coyote and The Victims.
“Audiences of all ages are invited to join the fun on Saturday at 2 p.m. with a student matinee by The Mash Em Ups Junior, which is just like The Mash Em Ups but in teen form. The show is safe and fun for kids, grandparents, and everyone in between. Those interested in learning the art of improv are invited to participate in a workshop at 4 p.m. Saturday. Scholl will lead participants in an introductory improv course, teaching techniques and providing a foundation for future comedic performers. Immediately following the workshop, the Alternative Comedy Theater’s existing students will take the stage for a complimentary showcase.”
Tickets for each of the evening shows are just $10, the student matinee is $5 and the improv workshop is $15 and can be purchased on their website.
