If you’ve been looking for a comedy improvisation fix in Denver, Colorado, you might want to try something a little different here at RISE Comedy Playhouse. Have you ever wondered what your life would be like if it was set as the plot of a musical? What about your entire corporate staff and all of their unique characteristics lampooned in a musical comedy? It’s an idea that might sound impossible to create on the spot, but it’s becoming a new form of comedy improv show we’ve utilized here called “Hit and Run: Musical Improv.”
The above is a Denver group who performs regularly for private functions in our facilities. And if you’ve been curious what that new “Rob Ford: The Musical” is all about, you might get a general idea of how the cheesy musical genre can basically be made up instantaneously by a skilled set of comedy improvisers. Then again, we don’t like using the word “cheesy” around here, because we think our improvisers create much better musicals than ones that take a year to write.
How is that possible? The first step is to bring your corporate staff here for a private party. We have the perfect Denver location for any private corporate function, and it won’t matter if you’re a startup or a major conglomerate. There also isn’t any person alive who can’t be parodied through a musical comedy. Once you attend our show, our skilled set of comedy improvisers will take as much interesting information about your employees as possible and turn it all into a professional Broadway musical within minutes.
Yes, “Hit and Run” basically turns the Broadway show on its ear to prove that creativity doesn’t have to be a long-term process. You’ll be astounded at how skilled our comedians are at creating Broadway-like songs on the spot and professional dance routines. Of course, don’t expect anything serious, even if their dance choreography is better than you think.
When it comes to comedy improvisation, the art of bodily movement plays a big part in how the comedy works. This doesn’t mean to expect ballet level dancing, but still plenty of skilled dance moves and overwhelming creative invention you won’t find anywhere else in the Denver area.
We guarantee you’ll laugh yourself silly at the improvised songs. We only warn those who’ve perhaps labored for years writing a stage musical not to be envious of our performers. In fact, many of them can teach you the ropes of improvisation through our classes here at RISE Comedy Playhouse. Perhaps you’ll be the first person to create a successful Broadway musical within a shorter time frame based on the skills of instant invention.
