IMG_9136The Mirth’O’Matics will keep the improv ball rolling for 2013 when they appear at Monterey’s historic Golden State Theatre on Friday night, January 25.   Turning audience suggestions into hilarious scenes, made up on the spot, the Mirthers use their wit and creativity to make it a fun evening of improvised comedy.

The Mirthers are one of two short form improv troupes on the Peninsula, a style made popular for television audiences by Whose Line Is It Anyway?  A variety of theater games challenge the actors who must achieve certain game objectives such as Blind Line in which the actors have to justify lines they see for the first time during the scene.   The show also includes scenes of improvised songs, an audience favorite.  “It’s an upbeat format with lots of audience interaction,” said troupe director, Gerry Orton.

The Mirthers are one of two short form improv troupes on the Peninsula, a style made popular for television audiences by Whose Line Is It Anyway?  Games run from 3 to 5 minutes challenging the actors to achieve certain objectives such as the Box, a game in which the actors are required to be in two different scenes as the game unfolds.  The game also includes dubbing in which one actor simply mouths lines while the other speaks.  Often times improvisation singing is added. “It’s a fast paced and upbeat format with lots of audience interaction,” said troupe director, Gerry Orton.

The Golden State Theater, 417 Alvarado St., Monterey.  Tickets are $12 and are available at the door 30 minutes prior to the show time.
