A couple of months back I was involved in the formation of an improv group called Big Gulp. We started rehearsing every week and had our first show as part of a Cage Match at ImprovBoston in October where we “faced off” against another group, WNBA. We lost but that did not discourage us!
Just a couple of weeks ago, Big Gulp auditioned to be a part of Studio 40, ImprovBoston’s weekly improv show held on Friday nights at 7:30. Studio 40 recently went through some changes and this will be the first time it is set up as a 6-team, 6-month residency. That means that 6 teams will rotate through 3 slots per week and each team will end up performing about twice a month. Well, we made it through auditions! We had a set that I was really proud of and Big Gulp will be part of Studio 40 through May!

Our first show as a part of Studio 40 is this Friday, December 7th, at 7:30. This very special show will showcase all six of the Studio 40 teams (Big Gulp, Aeropuerto, Fake Fake Monkey, First ImpACT, Ducks on Quack, and Improv Jones). Tickets are available now, use the promotional code GULP9 for $9 tickets!
No matter how old and jaded I get, I’ll always enjoy fireworks. Happy Fourth of July!
