Showcase!

One Sunday per month One Friday per month One weekend per month
Our shortform improv show!

Similar to “Whose Line is it Anyway?”, we take tons of suggestions from the audience and use them (and a few audience volunteers here and there) in a variety of scenes, songs, and competitive games made up right on the spot!

Come see the show and have dinner, drinks & dessert while you watch — City Steam brews their own beers right on the premises.

This is our first and longest-running show — we’ve performed over 50 monthly shows at City Steam since 2009.

Our longform improv show!

We bring the big-city style improv of New York, Chicago, Boston & LA to life in Hartford!

We’ll take a single suggestion of a word, phrase, or title, get inspired by improvised stories from celebrity guests, or interview audience members to create a 25-40 minute improvised comedy with different scenes, themes & characters!

The showcase features Sea Tea Improv’s show AND other performances by invited groups & mixed improvisers from all over, for a big fun festival-style show!

In this newest addition to our monthly shows, we put on special one-time or experimental comedy shows that may not even be improv!

We’ve done improvised musicals, a special show for kids & families, a sketch comedy show with live music similar to SNL, a show where the improv groups swapped members, and a show with new one-off groups that were no bigger than 3 members each!

These shows are where we do something truly unique — don’t miss a once in a lifetime opportunity!

String Theorie & Sea Tea Improv at La Paloma Sabanera
Sea Tea Improv is the band String Theorie's guest at La Paloma! Here's their description of the event:

"If you like music, comedy, theater, coffee, Joel, or all the above then PAY ATTENTION:

We like to think ALL of our La Paloma shows are special, but this time around we'll be doing something truly unique: We're teaming up with improv comedy troupe Sea Tea Improv for an evening of music and comedy! We'd tell you more but... well, we won't even know ourselves until that night. Such is the nature of improv, you see.

And to keep with the spirit of tossing out stuff you've never seen or heard before, there will be brand new String Theorie songs. Make it happen, Theorists!

Doors open at 7 PM, $5 cover, BYOB."

Laugh With Purpose!
From: www.ccsu.edu/cf_news/view.cfm?newsid=460

CCSU Theatre presents:

Laugh With Purpose!

( The 7th annual music and comedy extravaganza to benefit The Mayor’s Work Plan to End Homelessness )

May 16th, Noon-9pm at Trinity On Main in Downtown New Britain

The workshops and performances are free but patrons are urged to give generously to this worthy cause.

For the seventh year members of CCSU’s improv troupe, Schlock Therapy (and the newly formed student club Schlock ) are co-ordinating their energy, time, talent and skill (and money!) to benefit a good cause. Please join them in their belief that laughter can be a healing force. This year, in addition to the local improv and stand-up talent, the joyous a capella music and the Improv Olympiiix championship, we’ve added the brilliance of The Upright Citizen’s Brigade, the nation’s leading well-spring of original comedy.*

The fun begins at noon with public improv workshops lead by L A Improv-artist and CCSU alum, Chris Thompson, as well as members of Schlock Therapy, CCSU Theatre’s improv team.

At 2pm witness the making--right before your very eyes!!!-- of an epic. Watch Schlock Therapy, and the participants of the 2010 Improv Olympiiix* * create a show from absolutely nothing but your suggestions. After a short intermission, Schlock Therapy will offer a taste of short-form improv to warm the audience up, and then it’s time for the Improv Olympiiix 2010 Championship Round!!

Carmine Lavieri, up and coming stand-up artist (and yet another CCSU Theatre alum) does battle with his computer! Followed by the local improv team Sea Tea Improv. Free Lunch, who has DOMINATED this year’s Connecticut Cage Match improv competition (taking place every month at The Playhouse on Park and The Hole In The Wall), will also contribute a set, and in a special reunion performance, Chris Thompson and Colin Longstaff, both CCSU veterans--one making a career in LA, the other in NY, will do a set.

TGFI (Too Good For Instruments) the all female a cappella group from CCSU returns for their third year! These girls truly live up to their name with rich,complex vocals, and Divisi, an all-male group, also returns with their soulful and clever repetoire.

The newly crowned 2010 Improv Olympiiix champs, fresh from their exclusive, hour-long workshop with The Upright Citizen’s Brigade, lead-off the prime-time set (7pm), followed by The Upright Citizen’s Brigade Touring Company. Yet another CCSU alum and LWP veteran--Manhattan-based stand-up artist Cara Kilduff takes the stage next, and the marathon finishes with a round of Freeze-prov, open to everyone in the house (time permitting).

And of course the fabulous staff at Trinity on Main will be on hand to brighten your day, offering warm and cold treats and beverages of every variety (including wine and beer). So come for the marathon or for a few minutes of laughs and make a contribution to the health of our community!

Trinity On Main, Sunday May 16th, Noon-9pm. Call 860-832-3152, for info.

*The Upright Citizens Brigade (Matt Besser, Amy Poehler, Ian Roberts, and Matt Walsh) came to New York, from Chicago, in 1996. After staging their award winning sketch comedy show, and introducing the long form improvised structure of the "Harold" to New York audiences they began their classes. More recently they have been named "Hot Farm Team" by Rolling Stone magazine and "Best Comedy Club" by AOL, The UCB Theatre is widely recognized as home to today's funniest actors and writers. Among our esteemed alumni include several performers and writers for Saturday Night Live, The Office, The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, The Late Show with David Letterman, Late Night with Conan O'Brien, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, 30 Rock, Best Week Ever, Old School, Blades of Glory, Semi-Pro and countless other films, commercials and television shows. Performers who have gained success continue to lend their talents to the theatre and training center.

* *The Improv Olympiiix, also in it’s 7th year, is a short-form improv competition for teams of high school students around the state.
