Sedona Entertainment: Zenprov Comedy Live Show
‘Laughter from the Hereafter’
October 29th, 2016 (7:30 pm)
Tickets are $12 in advance and $15 the day of the show
Where’s that spooky laughter coming from? Look no further than Zenprov Comedy’s “Laughter from the Hereafter” at The Mary Fisher Theater in Sedona. Zenprov Comedy has been compared to the Drew Carey TV show “Whose Line Is It Anyway?” where experienced improvisers perform fast-paced comedic scenes created in the moment based on audience suggestions. Unlike sketch or standup comedy, nothing is scripted or rehearsed beforehand. “Halloween is our favorite time to perform because there is so much to work with. Getting up in front of an audience with nothing prepared is scary. Adding a few monsters and corn-syrup candies, and it gets very frightening, very funny, very fast” said Derek Dujardin, the troupe’s director. For more information or to purchase tickets to this Sedona event please visit the Sedona International Film Festival.
