Under St. Marks presents this troupe of improvisers who create a brand-new, one-act musical at every performance. More…
These improvisers make up the scenes, choreography, and original lyrics to karaoke songs you know and love, all based on the title of a musical you shout out. Welcome to opening (and closing) night!
for a previous production “The energy was through the roof…With a run time of about 50 minutes, ‘Happy Karaoke Fun’ Time is exactly what its title says it is: a happy fun time. You'll laugh. You'll clap. You'll probably cheer. You may even tap your foot to the beat of the songs. You'll leave feeling great. And, if you're like me, you'll probably be making plans to incorporate improvised lyrics to karaoke classics into your next party.” Full Review
for a previous production “Being that this is improv comedy, it’s not really about the plot, it’s how well the team of improv performers weave in and out of situations with comedic flair. Which I’m happy to report they do quite well here…What is especially great is how well the ensemble work together to create dozens of small, super weird characters to keep the audience engaged and laughing…The improvised lyrics are clever, strange, and ridiculous. Which also sums up the evening.” Full Review
See it if you want to just get silly + have a fun time + listen to silly lyrics My friend + I loved it and we are going again with a larger group!
Don't see it if if you don't like small theaters or creativity or if you hate Karaoke, then there is nothing here for you except maybe a great time!
See it if you want a good night of comedy. Every show will be different since it is improv, but they had me laughing the whole time. Will go again!
