First Annual 37 Year Bakersfield Improv Reunion and Bake Sale*
*Bake sale not guaranteed.
August 17 & 18, 2018
The Empty Space 706 Oak St. Bakersfield, CA 93304
Since 1989 there has been improv in Bakersfield California, only 8 years after iO Chicago, 13 years before UCB, two years after The Annoyance, 16 years before Magnet Theater, five years after ComedySportz--that is a long history of improvisation in a town few outside of the central valley know, beyond being the butt of jokes. So we, the improvisors from Bakersfield, are going to celebrate that. If you performed with or were a fan of CSz generation 1, 2, 3, or 4, The Hermit Colony, Retro Prairie Dog Amateurs, Major League Improv generation 1, 2 or 3, CSz high school league, The Black List, Center for Improv Advancement, or became an improviser after you left, you are invited.
I know lots of you had no interest in your high school reunions but for many of us our first improv family was one that profoundly affected our lives. Bakersfield gets a lot of hate from everyone, ourselves included but the “37” year history of improvisation is one thing we should all be proud of.
We would really like for you to be there. We are going to do our best to invite everyone we can, please reach out to anyone you would like to see there.
Thank you, and we got your back,
Producers: Alex Marino, and Michael Lewis
