Improvised & Uncensored Comedy at the Shea
Adapted from a Shea Comedy Players press release:
Fresh from their successful debut last month, the Shea Comedy Players bring another night of fabulous improv comedy to the Shea Theater stage, this time with their show Improvised and Uncensored on Saturday, November 1st, at 8PM. “We’d say this show is for mature audiences only,” says Shea Comedy Player founder Pam Victor, “but we don’t really act our ages. So let’s just say you should leave the kids home for this R-rated show.” It’s safe to say that of the mature adults in the theater, none will be onstage---much to the audience’s delight.
