Prepare your funny bone for Deep Schwa

UntitledWD-40 is equal parts useful and satisfying.  Sure, you fixed that squeaky door with a quick spray.  But when you finally swing it shut and hear nothing but the smooth sailing of hinges ending in a nice resounding *clunk* of its completed journey, you can’t help but smile and stand in awe of the seamlessness of it all.  In that same vein, seeing an improv troupe that really knows their stuff, and can take the most ridiculous suggestions and turn them into works of art, that feeling of WD-40 like satisfaction comes rushing back.  See for yourself what this crazy analogy tried to describe by checking out the Deep Schwa improv team at the Harold Cabaret!

One of a large number of the iO Theatre’s improv comedy teams, Deep Schwa is one of the “theater’s oldest troupes.”   In this case, old means “experienced,” and that’s exactly what you want in an improv team.  Featuring veteran actors like Brett Lyons, Jeff Griggs, and Danny Mora, Deep Schwa will  keep you guessing, keep you interested, but more importantly keep you laughing.

Starting this Sunday, October 12, Deep Schwa will perform at the Harold Cabaret theatre beginning at 8:30PM, with tickets costing $12.  Future performances will be held on subsequent Sundays, at the same time with the same ticket price, until November 30.  For more info on the Deep Schwa team, please click the link here.  For more information on other teams in The Harold improv comedy troupe, please follow the link here.
