THIS WEEK: SATURDAY, JULY 2, 2011

8pm: The Laughing Stocks / Fortune’s Fools / Twinprov
10pm: Stand-Up Showcase Hosted By Brad Chad Porter w/ James Curtis, Ryan Drake, Dan Skaggs and Leah Kayajanian

OKC Improv, Oklahoma's premiere showcase for improv comedy and theater, continues its 5-week Summer Run at Ghostlight Theatre Club (3110 N Walker) with two awesome shows this Saturday, July 2 at 8pm and 10pm.

Made up of current and former OKC Improv students, The Laughing Stocks kick off the 8pm show with a short form improv set followed by the return of Fortune's Fools. Bringing together some of the metro's best actors and improvisers on one stage, Fortune's Fools creates original stories and characters in the style of William Shakespeare. The 8pm show will close out with the hybrid musical comedy of nationally recognized duo Twinprov, recently returned from performing at the Chicago, Colorado, and Twin Cities Improv Festivals.

OKC Improv will play host to a showcase of local stand-up comedians on at 10pm featuring James Curtis, Ryan Drake and Dan Skaggs. Leah Kayajanian will headline in one of her final Oklahoma performances before moving to Los Angeles to pursue a career in comedy. The event will be hosted by one of Oklahoma’s most respected comedians Brad Chad Porter. Porter and Skaggs are both members of OKC Comedy, OKC Improv’s sister organization, devoted to promoting local stand-up comedy as well as bringing in some of the biggest names in stand-up to OKC to perform.
