Friday Night Improv

Kick off the weekend with 90+ minutes of comedy, made up on the spot and based on your suggestions! We will be joined by special guest groups throughout the season. While we don’t try for explicit content, our Friday shows are meant for adults. Tickets $15 online or at the door.

Friday, April 7, 2023 @ 8pm – Special Guests: Fat Cats & The Reader

Fat Cats is a Seattle based, long form improv duo! Shannon Bass and Olivia Sommers are two passionate improvisers whose experiences as fat, feminist women working for non-profits (and experience owning fat, feminist, non-profit cats) inform their on stage performance. They met through a shared love of improv and the hit CBS reality TV show Survivor. While both Fat Cats have been performing separately for years, the group started performing together in July of 2018, and they have taken the indie scene by storm ever since! They perform on literally any stage someone lets them on in the Seattle metropolitan area, which end up being a total of THIRTY shows their first year, including performing at Femprovisor Fest ’19 in San Francisco and the Detroit Women of Comedy Festival!

The Reader is a journey through the soul: a brave audience member shares true stories for a live tarot reading and a mystical cast of improvisers weave comedic tales from their past, present, and dare we say future? It’s hilarity on the spiritual plane. Half tarot. Half comedy. The Reader exists at the intersection of intuition and creativity. This divine improv comedy show peers into the beyond and teaches us to live more fully.
