Main Street Improv
Main Street Improv has expanded beyond its original mission of improvisational ensemble games and comedy (think Whose Line Is It Anyway?). Every Thursday night, Main Street's extemporaneous insanity is counterpointed by the scripted hilarity of Bosco's sketch comedy troupe ("Think Saturday Night Live, but funny," Atomic Cafe owner Wayne Wilden has said). After the show, local stand-up comedians perform their own brand of funny at no extra charge. And although arriving at the Midtown chuckle-hut can be difficult thanks to the mayor's ongoing construction project, the reward of laughter makes up for the obstacles.
