Tonight we challenge a giant.

Cagematch is a weekly improv competition at the UCB theater. Fiefdom, my improv group, is the challenger tonight. Our opponent is Omelette Vision, a dream team of 3 of the city’s best improvisors. They’re hugely popular. And they are the men who taught us improv.

It’s been a difficult haul. We lost two team members the week we were invited to challenge. We’ve had only a month to find and rehearse the new team amongst schedule complications, vacations, and our coach quitting. We’ve only performed together with the new lineup once.

But I’m excited. We have a great group, much stronger than before, and I’m glad we’re going up against the big boys. So come out tonight and vote for Fiefdom. Thursday, June 21st, 11:00 pm at the UCB theater. Details and reservations here.

“Don’t you love me!” Funny enough for repeat viewings. You may recognize Ptolemy (Gibler) from many TV commercials, and as Bono in the Improv Everywhere U2 prank.
