As many readers of The Blade already know, improv comedy has been making (up) some significant(ly funny) inroads in Toledo. Now, the instructors that form the heart of Toledo Repertoire Theatre’s improv instruction program have taken the next laughter inducing step.


‘The Monthly’, a comedy improv show, makes its debut performance on Friday, March 31st at 10:00 PM in the Valentine’s Studio A Theater, $10 for general admission.


Players Erin Kanary, Nick Morgan, and Martin Verni, have each spent years honing their comedy skills on famous improv stages in Detroit, Chicago, and New York. They now bring an impressive amount of laughter inducing talent to the Valentine. An entire comedy show will be created based on a single audience suggestion. Special guests will share the stage every month, and every show will be truly very different. The show is expected to last just over one hour, broken into two separate sets, with a brief intermission.  Alcohol, beer, wine and soda will be available for sale, and its consumption is encouraged.
