Madcap Comedy The Explorers Club

Buy Tickets COMP - $10 $20

Armed only with a spoon, an intrepid female explorer ventures into the jungle and returns with Luigi, a suitably exotic-looking member of the lost tribe she's just discovered. Yet the esteemed -- and all male -- members of London's exclusive Explorers Club still refuse to allow her entry. Granted, it's 1879 and well before women's lib, but this particular group of professors aren't exactly setting the world on fire -- one's searching for the East Pole and another believes the lost tribes of Israel actually ended up in Ireland. Tony nominee Nell Benjamin (Legally Blonde) wrote this crazy battle-of-the-sexes comedy, dubbed "wildly funny" by Variety, now coming to the Center Stage in Evergreen.

ComedySportz, the ingenious improv show that pits two teams of quick-witted performers against each other in a balls-to-the-wall battle for comedy supremacy, has been around for 30 years -- which is long enough for it to have its own abbreviation (CSz) and tons of famous alumni, including Wayne Brady (Whose Line Is It Anyway?, Let's Make A Deal) and Jason Sudeikis (SNL, Horrible Bosses). Now coming to the Avenue Theater in the Mile-High City, it works like this -- you and your fellow audience members provide suggestions to each squad, who throw down by coming up with scenes, bits and songs on the spot. Each show includes up to a dozen different improv games, out of a list of more than 100. A referee oversees the action, calling fouls (groan-worthy puns'll get you a flag) and keeping score. Yep, there are points and everything -- but the power to bestow winners and losers is ultimately in your hands. It's no laughing matter, except for the fact that it definitely is.

Meanwhile, Williams is best known for his riveting film scores in Harry Potter, Star Wars and more.
