One Crazy Summer

We're Back!!!!

First off, we want to apologize for ignoring the website all summer long.  We've been working our butts off trying to get the Push Comedy Theater up and running.  It's been a never ending onslaught of permits, and inspections and contractors.  It's been trying to say the least.

However, the end is near!!!!  We have just announce our fall class schedule.  You can check it out here.  We will also be announcing our first shows in the coming days, so stay tuned.

Thank you for being patient with us, and supporting us as we try to get our dream off the ground.

The Armando Show and the Made Up Movie

The Push Comedy Theater and the Muse Writers Center present 'The Armando Show and a the Made Up Movie'.

What better way to spend a Friday night than with not one but two totally free improv shows?!?

The Armando Show:

You start with a very true, very personal story based on the audience's suggestion. Then a group of improvisers create a montage of scenes and characters (Were going to need a montage) inspired by the story. And that makes an Armando. 

The Made Up Movie:

Who needs Hollywood! With a single audience suggestion an entire movie is created right before your eyes. Courageous heroes... dastardly villains... mind blowing special effects... you'll see it all and more crammed into a 25 minutes of improv magic.

The Pushers' 101 level and 505 level improv students bring you The Armando Show and a Movie. Two amazing shows. One killer night. Totally free.
