- LaughFest: River City Improv
Founded in 1993 by a couple of Calvin College (Grand Rapids, MI) grads who desired some more danger and adventure in their lives, River City Improv performs short-form Improvisational comedy based on audience suggestions. Their style of clean, clever comedy is similar to that seen on ABC’s Whose Line is it Anyway? They have also studied long-form improv with Improv Olympic in Chicago. They create shows that meld together different styles of Improv to provide an evening of gut-wrenching, roll-on-the-floor, rip-roaring fun and this show will be no different! Head to Wealthy Theatre to catch the show at 7:33 PM and to experience the fun. Click here for more information.
