Upstairs Gallery Bulletin #163 (7/28-8/3) “AUGUST! THE END IS NIGH!!!”

Folks! This is the start of the end of things! Also lots of fun beginnings??? But mostly ends. August is the last month of the Gallery at 5219 N Clark St. We are putting the schedule together right now which is a throw back to 2011-2012 UG with shows 7 nights a week at 8pm and 10:30pm. We’re trying to get as many people in the space as possible! Old friends and new!

In the meantime though we’ve got the rest of July’s shows to finish up, of which there are some very fun things.

SO READ ON, get ready for a whole bunch of updates over the next few days and please start to ponder stopping by and enjoying us enjoying you one last time!

We bought the upstairs gallery for 2 hours so we’ll have some fun things to do with friends that we haven’t seen in a while!

The Pitbull Memorial Service & Improv Jam
bunniesSaturday August 2nd 8pm, Free (Donations Accepted) BYOB

World-famous recording artist Pitbull heroically gave up his own life during the run of “Pitbull & I” this past May. His best friend Brian McGovern and his castmates decided it would be a fitting tribute to honor the superstar by hosting a night full of what he loved most: hip-shaking rhythms, softcore pornography, and longform improv comedy. 
Three mash-up teams and maybe some famous surprise guests will perform.

Stop by!

Tonight! Olio!

Thursday July 10th and 17th - 8pm, Free (Donations Accepted) BYOB

From the DEMENTED MIND of Phil Meister, comes a really cool little idea. Short plays by Improvisers/cool comedy people and then longer improv sets featuring the characters from these plays. So novel and fun you’ll forget IT IS DEMENTED AND WEIRD.

Stop by!
