We have finally reached that point in the summer where all
the local schools are out. Swarms of children roam free; already, their
vacation-slackened brains have started atrophying, their feral
instincts taking over. Ice-cream-truck drivers patrol the streets with
caution, fearing the packs of errant urchins who might ambush them.
Improv Boston just completed their fourth annual Geek Week, a series of comedy nights for those of us who prefer to hear jokes about Game of Thrones and Doctor Who. Improv Boston has a small theatre and a much larger theatre side by side, and each night had back-to-back events in both spaces. I attended the Friday and Saturday night shows.
Improv Boston just finished their annual Geek Week, which involves five nights of geek-themed comedy, some done by Improv Boston's own cast(s) and some done by touring geek comedians, writers, and musicians.
On Friday, I watched the Geek Comedy Tour. I enjoyed all of the performers, but the first of them, Jake Young, was my favorite in terms of material.
Your mom might not get you, your co-workers might not get you (unless you work here at at the Phoenix), and it's a pretty safe bet most members of the opposite sex really don't get you but, hark, there are people out there who do. Or so ImprovBoston's Geek Week claims. That's right, it's that time of year again. The time when even the pastiest-faced of Level 60 Night Elves put their Alienwares to sleep, crawl out of their parents' basements, and step out into the light.
