It’s the day before Friday, and we we we so excited for the Brown Stand Up Comics’ last show before break (and last show before big-time comedian Andy Kindler visits in early April) so get down to MacMillan for a night of jazz, jokes, and partyin’ partyin’ (yeah!)!
It’s Friday, Friday!! Think about fun! Then think about Starla and Sons’ amazing improv comedy show. Come to Lower Salomon, and see all your friends. They’re kicking in the front seats. Or maybe sitting in the back seat. How are you going to choose a seat?!
No time for bowls of cereal today, because it’s Saturday, the day after Friday! After months of anticipation it’s finally time for Out of Bounds’ first show of the semester. Arrive early at MacMillan 117–it’s going to be fun! Fun! Fun! Fun!
Second, tonight at 9pm there’s a small and pretty informal Brown Stand Up Comics song-and-stories based show in Petteruti Lounge. We’re trying not to advertise it too aggressively, though, since there will be a louder and far more important one next week. But come by if you want, and if not, then no hard feelings, eh?
A monstrous night of comedy lies ahead. Take your pick between…
1. IMPROVidence, Friday, 9pm – 10pm in Lower Salomon
An hour of on-the-spot improvisational comedy from the talented cast of IMPROVidence, who are fully off book and ready for their first show. If you tend to expect disappointment, then expect to be sorely disappointed.
2. Stand-Up Comedy at the Spot Underground, 8pm – 9:30pm at 15 Elbow Street
Brown stand up comics Lara Knorek, Samer Muallem, and Will Ruehle are playing away this week, performing their 10-minute routines off campus at the Spot Underground. A large group of Brown students will gather at Faunce Arch at 7:30 and walk over there as one giant audience-horde.
The Brown Barrel is an alliance of Brown’s written and performance comedy groups. This column runs twice a week. The first is short written humor, the second foretells upcoming comedy events.
Brown stripped the Reserve Officers’ Training Corps of its academic status during the widely-opposed-by-students Vietnam War. Then we forgot about all that and started excluding ROTC from Brown based on other criteria. But now the military has changed its ways and it’s apparently time to reconsider. Can its college officer commissioning program buck the trend of ROTCs that have been successfully kept off Brown’s campus?
