OKC Improv, Oklahoma's premier showcase for improvisational comedy and theater, begins its Winter 2012 Run at Ghostlight Theatre Club (3110 N Walker) with two awesome shows this Saturday, November 12, 2011 at 8pm and 10pm.

At 8pm we've got OKC-based short form group Take One Improv followed by Magician and Mentalist William Rader who will wow the audience with his incredible feats of mind reading! OKC's longest running comedy troupe Everybody and Their Dog will close out the 8pm show by telling an improvised story full of colorful offbeat characters.

At 10pm, Good Cop/Nice Cop open the show with their original Armando-style long form that centers on a mock interrogation. Next, Austin-based duo Jorak and Jorak Do Movie will reenact a movie with a distinct Russian flair. Comedy nerd-pop-folk-rock-hiphop band The Memepunks closes out show.
