Deep in the heart of Syracuse lies an inner circle of people. Within this inner circle are creative minds, pro-active local artists, inspirational individuals, hysterical comedians, and more. These people are the beating heart of this wonderful city. They support local initiatives, they seek to inform people of their hobbies and passions, they are dedicated to the betterment of this wonderful community. And every so often, you learn about what these people are doing, and you can’t help but want to learn more.
I learned about the Syracuse Improv Collective through a few friends and knew immediately that it was something I needed to learn more about. My first thought was, there is no way I can’t feature something this great on 365 Things Syracuse. My second thought was, how on earth have I not learned about this sooner? As an endless lover of comedy; I am always laughing. I surround myself with people who are hysterical. I tend to toot-my-own-horn (but only sometimes…) by telling people I’m the funniest person they’ve ever met… some agree, some roll their eyes with a slight sarcasm. It’s become my schtick.
The Syracuse Improv Collective seeks to highlight improv artists through workshops and shows. They support local comedians, area troupes, and also people just interested in getting into the sport of comedy through improvisation. They offer workshops, that’ll teach you the art of improv and help hone your technique.
Friday, March 1st at 8pm there is a show at the Syracuse Playhouse, which is located in the Shoppingtown Mall…yes, that place is still around. For $5, you can get an inside look to the art of hysterically funny improv. This is something that is worth checking out. It’s a great date idea for those who are looking to switch it up from the same old dinner & a movie, it’s a great event to grab friends and go…it’s fun for everyone. My friends and I will definitely be attending this event.
If you’d like to learn more about possibly taking an improv class or getting involved with SIC in general, there will be a mixer from 6:30-7:30, before the show, where you’ll meet some of the members of previous workshops and get a chance to learn more information about SIC.
