Only in an improv class can a drinking, smoking, pregnant prostitute NOT be the most inappropriate person present.

There were also the twin brothers who enjoy playing tricks on people and secretly both dated the same unsuspecting handicapped woman with a lisp.

Oh, and the man who buried treasures like corn nuts and shoes in his neighbor’s yard so he could dig them up later – you know, when he needed them.

There was the nurse who, despite the fact that he mistakenly pulled out heart valves and inserted IVs into eyeballs, insisted he should be given “permanent status.”

And don’t overlook the doctor, who worked on commission and needed more bodies to work on.

In case you can’t tell from this freakish cast of characters, last night’s Held2gether Drop-In Improv class was a hoot. You don’t have to miss out on all the fun, you know: the next batch of class starts in a couple weeks. And if you can’t commit, no worries! There’s a 1/2-Day Intro to Improv Workshop on October 9th. Six weeks of fun crammed into four hours!
