LNGR – Late Night Grand Rapids (LNGR) includes but is not limited to Alastair J. Watt, Danielle Armstrong, Sean Francis, KJ Johnson, Sarah Wegner, and Laura Uzarski. Taking cues from several classic sketch shows (Monty Python, SNL, Kids in the Hall, Key & Peele, Inside Amy Schumer, etc.), but with a modern twist of incorporating audience suggestions and guest-submitted sketches, LNGR combines pre-written sketches with a wide berth for spontaneity, improv, and ad libbing. Almost everything is planned, except for the parts that aren’t. We will do our best, we will “yes and”, we will be experimental. We will fail, but we will also succeed. Hopefully more of the latter.
PLANT PARENTHOOD – Plant Parenthood came together in December of 2015 after its founding members met at Dog Story Theater’s Comedy Outlet Mondays. They have become regular performers at there and at Comedy Outlet Underground. Members have trained at Grand Rapids Civic theater and Chicago’s iO theater. PP has dabbled in short form games, sketch writing and performing, and more recently long form improv. No two shows are ever the same with this heart-wrenching and reality-bending group of comedy heroes!
NO OUTLET IMPROV – No Outlet is a Grand Rapids original entertainment group that is working throughout West Michigan to promote and perform improvisational theater. They’ve been on stage at The Lake Effect Fringe Festival, Lady Fest GR, LaughFest and is the host for the weekly Comedy Outlet Mondays program at Dog Story Theater. No Outlet performs with high energy and versatility.
