Comedy that Leaves a Mark: Shameless self-promotion part II

Posted By on Thu, Oct 31, 2013 at 10:59 AM

Every Part I deserves a Part II.

Anyway, we all know what a cage match is, right? Obviously, it's a wrestling match where two, three, four, five, or even six beefy, screaming, steroid-pumped maniacs climb into a cage, or a barbed wire cage, or an electrified cage, and hit each other in the face with folding chairs. Like this...

The Memphis Improv Cage Match is exactly like that only it's six or eight or a dozen or more beefy area comics who climb in the cage and hit each other with folding chairs. Only, in this case the cage in imaginary, and instead chairs it's zingers and whatnot. And it all goes down Saturday, Nov. 2

These occasional matches are an extended family reunion for Memphis’ Improv community and gives groups like FreakEngine, Running Gag, and The Wiseguys an opportunity to square off in what is being billed as, "a hilarious battle royale."

So this promotion isn't all a shameless selfie, but as I like to mention as often as I can, I get lots of help from the Memphis comedy community, and I couldn't do this blog without assistance from The Wiseguys and contributors like Joey Hack, Memphis ex-patriot Robert Callahan, and all the rest.

You can get all of the details here.
