Zenprov Comedy: The Cosmic Giggle




If the Universe is conscious, it probably has sense of humor. So strap yourself for a wild ride as Zenprov Comedy explores the cosmic side of life in their all-new improvised show “The Cosmic Giggle” This one-night only performance happens Saturday, Jan 20 at 7:30 pm at the Mary Fisher Theater. Tickets are $12 per-sale, or $15 at the door. 

“Zenprov is the best comedy troupe in Arizona,” said Mr. Patrick Schweiss, Executive Director of the Sedona International Film Festival. “People were laughing so hard their cheeks were hurting.”

If you’ve never attended one of their live performances before, Zenprov Comedy is similar to the popular improvised TV show “Whose Line Is It Anyway?” The troupe performs fast-paced games and scenes created in the moment—always based on audience suggestions. Unlike sketch or standup comedy, nothing is scripted or otherwise prepared ahead of time. Best of all, it’s never the same show twice. ??

The Zenprov Comedy players embrace the Del Close method of improv acting, which emphasizes the “group mind” that mysteriously develops during a performance. Miraculously, the player’s minds fuse together to create a “super mind” where they practically finish each other’s sentences—and often do. Laughter ensues.

The super minds of Zenprov Comedy are Derek Dujardin, Shaeri Richards, Chris Redish, Tom Shoemaker, Betty Testa, Shaunn Cochran, Linda Roemer and Mary Carder.??

Tickets are $12 pre-sale and $15 the day of the show. This one-night-only performance can sell out so please purchase tickets early.

Shows are family friendly (rated PG-13) and run approximately 90 minutes. Visit www.ZenprovComedy.com to learn more.
