Bad Date (NOLA)
Forged in the fire of TNM NOLA’s conservatory, Bad Date emerged from the embers of graduation mere months ago. Although they’re one of TNM’s newest student troupes, Bad Date has already become known for a symbiotic chemistry previously thought to be rendered by time alone. Their high energy style and dynamic talent make for a must-see show that Megaphone attendees would be remiss to, um, miss.
Bad Date is: Nora Belblidia, Andrew Doss, Emily Guyette, John Haffner, Jessica Hong, Megan Staab and Ruby Wolf.
Brought together by the powers that be, we were selected, each, with our own unique abilities. Nicky from the North. Lauren from the South. Kate from the East. Carlos from the West. And Ben from the Moon. From the lowly beginnings of individuality, we became a gang, then a crowd, to a gaggle, till, finally, we became an assembly. The Assembly. Assembly.
Jeff & David (ATX)
Jeff Whitaker and David Howe are two friends who happen to end up on stage together a lot. When they do, they perform high-energy, absurd improv comedy that is sure to leave them (and maybe the audience) sweaty.
This show is presented by Improv Wins!
