DC4N is all about helping each other find unique comedy in Washington D.C. And no one is quite as unique as my friend, Justin Purvis. They guy is a improv dynamo, doing time with such troupes as 161, Caveat, and Season Six. Plus, the handful of other shows he puts together to dazzle your mind. This week he has a one person show that he (and I) think you should go to.
As some of you know, this week I will be premiering my One-Man Show, Secrets, at Washington Improv Theater, as part of their Mad Science Thursdays. This is me asking you, no, pleading with you, to make a special trip out to Chinatown this Thursday night to see the show. It is ONE NIGHT ONLY, this Thursday, October 4 th, 8pm at Flashpoint Theater, 916 G St NW, Washington DC 20001. Tickets are $10 and you get three shows for that price. Plus free candy and soda*
Thursday nights are notoriously light nights for us, simply because it is a week night, people have to work the next day. And also, part of the drawback is the fact that the shows are more on the experimental side, instead of the "tried and true" shows, like onesixtyone, Jackie, and Caveat. But for this one night, I ask you, please to forget the fact that you have to work on Friday, forget the fact that you have no idea what you are in for when you arrive (That is what improv is all about! We make this sh*t up as we go along), and remember that I probably owe you money, and wouldn't Thursday, 10/04/07 be a great night to come and collect from me.
So here's the proposal I have for you. Come see the show on Thursday, October 4th, at 8pm. Find me after the show to tell me how great/funny/awkward the show was, and if we sell out the show for Thursday night, I will issue each of you one favor, to be redeemed at any time by you. It could be good for a beer or a backrub, a hug or a horseback ride, you name it, it's yours.** Bring a friend or two as well, that makes it more fun!!! Also feel free to repost this or send it on to other friends of yours as well, because I don't know everybody yet.
Let's show WIT and DC how much we love when people go out on a limb and try something new, exciting, and downright freaking scary as hell to even think about doing. I mean COME ON!! A ONE MAN SHOW WHERE IT'S COMPLETELY MADE UP!?!?!?!! I MUST BE OUT OF MY MIND!!!!!!!!
*The candy and soda are free, but donations are always appreciated!
** Within reason.
