The suits and ties are pressed, Friday night's best outfit is coming off the rack, and the slickest improvisational theater and sketch comedy is ready at Bovine Metropolis Theater. Their newest show has all the class of your favorite talk show and all the laughs of your most beloved comic moments. This is improvised theater and comedy at its height, this is PrimeTime.
PrimeTime will feature two acts of improvisation and original sketches written by a team of comedy artists. The Bovine Sketch Team has developed a whole, brand-new repertoire of original sketches, polished and ready for the show.
Born from the one-of-a-kind Bovine House Team system, these top level house teams will be creating entirely new material in the moment, and the sketch team will be creating new material every week. This is certainly an impressive feat for theatre, but its a level of creativity that Bovine House Teams are known to meet and exceed. Teams that the community agrees deserve a spot in the PrimeTime move from Fringe to the higher profile Friday night.
"These groups are pushing to transcend the audience and themselves every night," says Eric Farone, Artistic Director of Bovine Metropolis Theater. "They will take more chance, succeed more often, and take the audience on a hilarious journey every night."
PrimeTimers will be dressed to the nines in button down shirts, ties, skirts and snazz. "There is nothing like exploding into the improv unknown while looking sharp," says PrimeTime player, Kent Welborn.
Improvisation combined with sketch comedy is a classic combination in theaters across the country, and the level of play at Bovine Metropolis Theater will transcend the forms and truly reach the audience with a polished professional experience.
Much like the breakneck pace of quality sketches that one sees on Saturday Night Live, The Bovine Sketch Team will be developing new sketches every week. That's brand new material for every show, every time.
"When sketch is done right, it let's you see things in a hilarious, new way," says Farone. "Long-form is transcendent and awe inspiring, sketch is sure-fire and hilarious, both are smart and exciting, putting them together we have created a show that will amaze audiences as much as it entertains them and makes them laugh."
PrimeTime tickets are $16 and the show premieres the first week of September 7th at 8:00 P.M. It plays every Friday.
Bovine Metropolis Theater is an improv organization that teaches and performs theatrical improvisation which is the art of accepting the unknown gracefully. For tickets and more information about Bovine Metropolis Theater, call 303-758-4722 or visit their website at www.bovinemetropolis.com.
