Left for Dead Presents: Famous Last Words
They are Rochester's newest (and oldest) improv troupe! With more than four centuries of life experience, they've certainly had enough time to figure out what's funny. See the cast of Left for Dead, a team of performers ages 50+, present short and long form improv, sketch, and standup comedy at Bread & Water Theatre for one night only: Saturday, January 26th, 2013. This represents the ongoing efforts of Bread & Water Theatre to bring innovative programming to the City of Rochester and present comedy from a new and exciting perspective.
This jam-packed show features:
The standup comedy of Dan Mulcahy, a finalist in the 2012 Laughin' Cup Comedy Contest.
The husband-wife team of Roger and Jeri Dube, known as "1matchfire," performing a long form set so truthful and real, you'll think you're watching in 3D.
Left for Dead in Clusterville, the smallest of small towns where everyone knows everyone and secrets are never safe. During this long form improvised set, the players use audience suggestions to help define their quirky personalities and relationships. See how their lives intertwine and what can happen when too many people get too nosy. It will either be Clusterville or a cluster!#%&!
Original comedy sketches, featuring zany characters, satirical situations, and those unpredictable moments that make life worth living.
"George Bernard Shaw famously said, 'We don't stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing.' Left for Dead is Shaw's quote incarnate," says John Forrest Thompson, co-founder of Search Engine Improv and The Space. "This old brood will take you on a complete journey from the silly, to the absurd, to the poetic, and back again."
The cast includes Jeri Dube, Roger Dube, Patricia Farneth, Dan Mulcahy, Carol Shea, Tim Shea, and Roger Sutphen. All perform improv, sketch, and stand-up comedy throughout the Rochester area.
