Improvisational comedy theater spreads waves of laughter By camille kelleher Web Editor At every show, Who’s Line is it Anyway? meets Saturday Night Live and Mad TV with sketches, music, and improvisations based on audience suggestions. “Just the Funny” is an improvisational and sketch comedy hole-in-the-wall theater on Coral Way that hosts themed shows every Friday and Saturday at 9pm. Whether it is a night out with friends or a romantic date, “Just the Funny” is the perfect way to spice up ordinary weekend plans. Improvisation is a form of theater that depends on creating the performance in the moment; therefore every show is unique, spontaneous and entertaining. The performers have all been trained on improvisational acting and techniques, exuding an enjoyable and funny aura both on and off the stage. The intimate 125-person theater leaves every attendee at risk of being clapped up on stage, with faces flushed with embarrassment, to help the actors perform their skits. The performers will later comically and lightheartedly heckle at the rest of the attendees who avoided the stage as they exit the theater after the show. “Ingenious, hilarious, professional,” said Columbus High School senior David Shay. “They are really consistently funny and it is a great way to spend an evening.” If attendees liked what they saw on stage and wanted to become a part of the show, Just the Funny offers improvisational acting and sketch writing classes that are professionally designed, syllabus-driven courses. “Just the Funny” has a calendar of shows on their website, to liven up anyone’s weekend. Ticket prices vary with the show and can be bought prior to the show, online or at the theater. “4-Play” will be performed this Friday at 9pm for $10, and it is well worth the money.
