ZENPROV COMEDY PRESENTS: “ADULT SUPERVISION REQUIRED!" Saturday night, Jan. 31 at The Main Stage in Cottonwood 7:00 PM
Join Zenprov Comedy for spontaneous hilarity on Saturday, January 31 at 7:00 PM at Main Stage. Tickets are $10.
“Zenprov is the best comedy troupe in Arizona,” said Mr. Patrick Schweiss, Executive Director of the Sedona International Film Festival. “People were laughing so hard their cheeks were hurting.”
Similar to the improvised TV show “Whose Line Is It Anyway?”, Zenprov Comedy performs fast-paced, spontaneous comedic games created in the moment—always based on audience suggestions and hands-on fun with willing participants from the audience. Unlike sketch or standup comedy, nothing is scripted or rehearsed ahead of time. It’s completely spontaneous and never the same show twice.
“Since the Main Stage is an adult-only venue, we won’t be keeping our material safe and ‘family friendly’ like we do in Sedona,” said Derek Dujardin, the director of Zenprov Comedy. “So, for the first-time ever, the troupe will be completely uncensored, which will be both refreshing and edgy for us.”
This will be the troupe’s first show in Cottonwood in almost two years. “We’re super excited to play to a new audience that hasn’t seen us before. We have a lot of friends, fans, family and colleagues who have never seen us before because they didn’t want to make long drive to Sedona,” said Dujardin
The Zenprov players embrace the Del Close method of improv acting, which emphasizes the “group mind” that mysteriously develops during a performance. Miraculously, the player’s minds fuse together to create a “super mind” where they practically finish each other’s sentences—and often do. Laughter ensues.
The super minds of Zenprov are Derek Dujardin, Brian Cooperrider, Shaeri Richards, Chris Redish, Mike Burdick, Betty Testa, Shaun Cochran, Linda Roemer and Mary Carder. The Main Stage is located at 1 Main Street, Cottonwood. Visit www.ZenprovComedy.com to learn more. Tickets at $10 at the door. No per sales.
