First 24 hour show set for March 6
To Be Determined Comedy (TBD Comedy) will be having its first-ever twenty-four-hour show. This event, dubbed Improvathon, will be starting on March 6, which is this Friday. The show will start in the NDSU Memorial Union at 9 a.m. and will end in Thompson Hall at 9 a.m. on March 7.
TBD Comedy is a student-led improvisation club, which means nothing is scripted or meant to happen, yet it does. The TBD Comedy Club has practice every week, on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
The practices for TBD Comedy are for honing the club member’s skills in quick wit and reaction time to situations. This 24-hour event will give ample time for students who are curious about the club to pop on in and see what it is all about.
Normally TBD Comedy shows are held for about an hour on Saturdays, but this will be a whole new event to look forward to. This is the improv club’s first event like this, and one of their goals is to make it the longest-lasting improv show in North Dakota.
Another goal club members have is to live stream the whole 24-hour show. They will be airing live on the TBD Comedy Club YouTube channel @ToBeDeterminedComedy. Along with this livestream, there will be the opportunity to support TBD Comedy through direct donations.
The funds gained will go to “teaching and performing new forms and types of improv around the world to members, and for improved equipment to help many generations of students in the club to come,” said club president James Hoefler.
Direct funding can be donated by going to the TBD Comedy Club page on the NDSU website.
This event will no doubt be an exhaustive process, but To Be Determined Comedy is dedicated to doing it. If you have some spare time on Friday or Saturday, go visit the club in person or watch their livestream.
Club members will even be inviting guests to join them in their skits on stage, which could create quite an amusing situation.
