Hanging with Harold (Drop-In Event)
Hanging with Harold is not a class or a workshop. It's not a show, either. It's a "learn by doing" drop-in event where Sea Tea Improv Studios students, Sea Tea Comedy Theater performers, and members of the Connecticut improv community (that's you, just by showing up!) practice a kind of longform improv comedy together known as the Harold. Learn more about the Harold here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harold_(improvisation)

"You'll have to do about a hundred Harolds to start feeling comfortable with the form." - Matt Besser, founding member of the Upright Citizens Brigade

We track of the cumulative number of Harolds done by each participant from week to week. Each week, we will do 1, 2 or 3 Harolds (time depending), and everyone who participates will add to their Harold total. Can you reach 100 completed Harolds?

Just $5 per person via cash at the door, Venmo (@seateaimprov), or PayPal (comedy@seateaimprov.com).

Longform Showcase feat. Vladimir John Perez
You give us the word to get us going. Then, watch unique fully improvised comedy shows unfold right before your eyes.

Every Longform Showcase features the Sea Tea Improv Ensemble, a killer guest group, and a one-night-only team.

This month's special guest is Los Angeles actor and improviser (and Sea Tea Improv co-founder), Vladimir John Perez!

Tickets: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/longform-showcase-feat-vladimir-john-perez-tickets-34634632117

Vlad is an actor in Los Angeles, CA, where he has recently appeared on two CBS sitcoms, "Superior Donuts" and "Man with a Plan." He performs sketch, character, and improv comedy at various theaters in LA.

Vlad was one of the driving forces behind Sea Tea Improv first performing longform improv comedy back in 2010, and he started the Longform Showcase in 2011. Come see him jump back into this improv show with some other special guests!

===

Since 2011, Sea Tea Improv's Longform Showcase has brought unique, experimental, and just damn funny improv teams from all over the country to Hartford to perform improv comedy styles you might not see anywhere but the world's biggest theater and comedy cities. Come see a new kind of improv comedy right here in Hartford!

Asperger’s Are Us - Sketch Comedy
Asperger's Are Us!

The first comedy troupe composed entirely of people with Asperger Syndrome comes to Hartford for the very first time!

This is a full sketch comedy show, followed by a Q&A afterward. As always, this will be appropriate for anyone who's started puberty.

Tickets: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/aspergers-are-us-sketch-comedy-tickets-34179836812

"Audiences don’t usually know what to expect from Asperger’s Are Us, a Boston sketch comedy troupe made up solely of artists on the autism spectrum. Will they use self-deprecating humor about life with Asperger’s syndrome? Are they hoping to shed light on a serious condition? Will they be something like Sheldon, the socially inept character on CBS’s 'The Big Bang Theory'?
The answer, it turns out, is none of the above.
Instead of focusing on the condition, the four men who make up the troupe perform skits and monologues that reflect their thoughts, perspectives and offbeat sensibilities, often characterized by deadpan and absurd humor... the guys are not looking for sympathy laughs or polite applause. Their show is not an autism awareness campaign, they say. They want people to laugh simply because they’re funny." - New York Times

"Weird as the per­form­ances were, they were in line with the type of sketch I like from Kids in the Hall or Whitest Kids U’Know—oddball char­ac­ters, goofy premises, and clev­er word­play. As a neur­o­typ­ic­al per­son who is gen­er­ally ig­nor­ant of aut­ism, I didn’t know what to make of the As­per­ger’s as­pect of the act. As a dis­crim­in­at­ing fan of al­tern­at­ive com­edy, I ate it up." - Philadelphia Weekly

CT Cage Match Finals - KnucklePuck vs. Winnipeg!
The final round of the 2016-2017 Connecticut Cage Match!

It's KnucklePuck VS. Winnipeg for the 2016-2017 CAGE MATCH CHAMPIONSHIP!

The audience votes to decide the winner!

Tickets: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/ct-cage-match-finals-knucklepuck-vs-winnipeg-tickets-34636691276

KnucklePuck - a slapshot that moves like a sine curve rather than a direct, straight shot. Four crazy kids from Connecticut team up to annihilate an audience member's suggestion through teamwork, physicality, and a lot of crazy.

Winnipeg is a collection of Connecticut-based improvisers who focus on studying and performing the Harold. Despite the Canadian name, our team contains zero actual Canadians. Our improv training spans a variety of theaters including UCB, Magnet, and Annoyance, but the commonality that ties us together is that our foundation started with Hartford's very own Sea Tea Improv. We are a house team for the new Sea Tea Comedy Theater and have performed at the Hartford Improv Festival and the Del Close Marathon.

Rules are like hearts: meant to be broken. Watch a group of improv renegades break rules, hearts and probably each other in this one night only experiment. Can they manage to entertain an audience without relying on the forms and conventions they've spent years learning? Probably not and if not, Brian Quagan will buy you his favorite meal and watch you eat it.

Enjoy a night of (mostly) improvised comedy brought to you by the twisted minds of juss blaz3 featuring Boners Never Lie and Jack Hughes' Birthday.

MCQUEEN (Funny or Die & Comedy Central)
Comedy/Music/Impressions/Kinda/Sorta/Weird

McQueen Adams has taken his world of impressions, music, and comedy in a fresh and innovative direction, creating a hi-tech audio-visual universe. His new show "MCQUEEN" incorporates his improvisational skills with the music of groups such as Daft Punk and Coldplay, voices both real and fictional, including Gandalf, his Mom’s Cat and Jason Statham, and plenty of original bizarre inhabitants.

With an upcoming show on Comedy Central and a tour for Funny Or Die this summer, Adams is master of this mashup of songs,voices, and sketches that Radiohead’s Thom Yorke has called “just brilliant” and Dave Chappelle has labelled “mad funny,” adding, “Dude’s doing something crazy original. It’s going to be huge!”

(We Really Like) The Lord of the Rings: An Original The Lord of the Rings Sketch Comedy Show inspired by the events of The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring

One show to rule them all. Wait. No. It’s two shows. One audience to find them (that’s you). One cast to bring them all in (that’s us), and in the darkness bind them. Wait. That sounded creepy. The show is really funny (we promise).

A group of friends sets out on an epic journey… to write a full length sketch show parodying Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring. Will Frodo be able to resist the pull of the One Ring?

Chatterbox / James Joyce feat. Alex Dueben
Improv and Storytelling are like two siblings who can't stop chattering.

In this show, Chatterbox: Improv Meets Storytelling, we'll all hear some compelling stories for the first time, and then our improvisers spin the ideas and themes from those stories into some awesome comedy scenes for you!

Sometimes the stories are from a special guest, sometimes we'll ask the audience for stories, sometimes a professional storyteller, or sometimes it's our own improvisers -- but any way it goes, you get a little bit of improv and a little bit of storytelling!

This month's special guests are writer Alex Dueben and novelist/poet James Joyce (in absentia)! Our Chatterbox improvisers will talk with Alex about the famous cryptic Irish author, and do improv comedy scenes based on Joyce's life, work, and unique style. Join us for a super-specific literary nerdgasm and James Joyce-themed improv comedy!

Tickets: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/chatterbox-james-joyce-feat-alex-dueben-tickets-34779421185

Alex Dueben has written profiles, articles and reviews for many publications including The Paris Review, The Rumpus, The Believer, The Poetry Foundation, The Daily Beast, The Comics Journal, Publishers Weekly, The Brooklyn Rail, and The Los Angeles Times. He is a staff writer for Comic Book Resources and Suicidegirls, has produced and appeared on NPR programs, and has run events and conducted live interviews across the country.

His interviews are included in the books Nick Cardy: The Artist at War (Titan Books), Conversations with William Gibson (The University Press of Mississippi), and Conversations with Peter Kuper (The University Press of Mississippi).

Alex also wrote this profile of Sea Tea Improv for Splitsider in 2015: splitsider.com/2015/08/.....atch/

Hanging with Harold (Drop-In Event)
Hanging with Harold is not a class or a workshop. It's not a show, either. It's a "learn by doing" drop-in event where Sea Tea Improv Studios students, Sea Tea Comedy Theater performers, and members of the Connecticut improv community (that's you, just by showing up!) practice a kind of longform improv comedy together known as the Harold. Learn more about the Harold here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harold_(improvisation)

"You'll have to do about a hundred Harolds to start feeling comfortable with the form." - Matt Besser, founding member of the Upright Citizens Brigade

We track of the cumulative number of Harolds done by each participant from week to week. Each week, we will do 1, 2 or 3 Harolds (time depending), and everyone who participates will add to their Harold total. Can you reach 100 completed Harolds?

Sea Tea Improv presents

GUTENBERG! THE MUSICAL!

Written by Scott Brown & Anthony King

In this two-man musical spoof, a pair of aspiring playwrights perform a backers’ audition for their new project - a big, splashy musical about printing press inventor Johann Gutenberg. With an unending supply of enthusiasm, Bud (Dan Russell) and Doug (Greg Ludovici) sing all the songs and play all the parts in their crass historical epic, with the hope that one of the producers in attendance will give them a Broadway contract - fulfilling their ill-advised dreams. Featuring accompanist Kevin Scott as Charles. Produced by Julia Pistell. Directed by Casey Grambo.
