The crew of the SS Buzz Aldrin flounders in deep space. Their only option...get a tow to the nearest planet from AakAak Towing. One problem, AakAak only takes payment in the local currency of Grudax.
Follow our intrepid crew as they improvise life among the aliens of a planet they know absolutely nothing about. Can they find work as foreigners to pay the towing charges? Is that alien dueling, or proposing marriage? How much can a faster than light propulsion unit cost? Come see the fun of IRTE's next fully improvised comedy, and find out what happens.
The Improvisational Repertory Theatre Ensemble is back with its most cosmic comedy, yet! Will our explorers get off, or will they get...PROBED?
Original Concept and Directed by Robert Baumgardner
Starring Nannette Deasy, Curt Dixon, Graceann Dorse, Jamie Maloney, Jeff O'Leary, Isabelle Owens and Stephen Thornton
The Improvisational Repertory Theatre Ensemble is an ensemble of comedy actors and writers who develop, produce and perform a season of original themed improvisational shows and video sketches, following the basic model of traditional repertory theatre. IRTE returns this year after a highly successful premiere season of fully improvised and stylized shows. Last season, IRTE’s six-month tour included stand-out showings at The Peoples Improv Theater, Luca Lounge, The Creek and the Cave, and the Parkside Lounge.
IRTE has also been an official selection at festivals including the 2012 Portland Improv Festival, the 2013 New Orleans Comedy Arts Festival, the 2013 Unscripted New York Improvised Theatre and Film Festival and the 15th Anniversary Del Close Marathon.
Peppering each showcase were talented musical guests like Jessica Delfino, Alexis Thomason, Jason Soffer, Gift of Tongues, Mindy Raf, Ben Lerman, Amy Albert, Caroline Eckman, Summer and Eve, Squirm & Germ, Taylor Ferrera, Mr. Big Head, The Vigilante, and Evan Laurence.
"A clever cacophony of topical humor, retro references, and on-their-feet wit ... a merry chase" Bob Greene, Outerstage
"A great show that included enough specifics to satisfy my inner-geek and also stood on its own as a delightful long-form improvisation... smart, grounded comedy" Marcia Sofley, Improvisation News
"A lot of fun!" Dennis Holden, Dennis Has aPodcast
"Quick-wit hi-jinks... humor for the thinking man – and woman," Amy M. Frateo, Outerstage
