Live Improv Comedy by Crawlspace Eviction
The sixteenth season of Crawlspace Eviction begins September 21 and 22, with a weekend of shows entitled “Ramen” and changes for the improv and sketch comedy troupe that include a new venue and lower ticket prices.
The theme of the troupe’s last season was board games, and Crawlspace Eviction will be taking inspiration for its upcoming season from something that might be just as playful and possibly even more nourishing: soups.
Troupe members hope that, just as oyster and saltine crackers can complement a hot broth, the new theme will go well with the troupe’s new performance venue, the Crawlspace Comedy Theatre. The new venue is located in what is now the First Baptist Church, the ownership of which is transitioning to the Kalamazoo Nonprofit Advocacy Coalition, a nonprofit organization with a mission that includes, among other things, support of the arts. Also with the new venue comes a two-dollar drop in ticket prices.
Your performers for the weekend will be Bannon “The Broth” Backhus, Brian “The Dribble” Duguay, Dann “Seaweed” Sytsma, Lizzy “Half-boiled” Honoway and Tara “Tip Your Server” Sytsma.
The performances will take place in the Crawlspace Comedy Theatre, located in what is now the First Baptist Church, at 315 W. Michigan Ave., on September 21 and 22. The shows will start at 8 pm, with seating beginning at 7:30 pm. Tickets are $13, $11 for students.
