I know things are a little…same old, same old humdrum right now, given the current state of affairs. So if you’re looking for a night out but can’t actually…go out, look no further. Grab your drink of choice, some popcorn or even a pizza, and check out The Groundlings Theatreâ€™s The Crazy Uncle Joe Show Online Edition!
One of the most popular shows at The Groundlings Theatre, The Crazy Uncle Joe Show is a long-form improv show that begins with audience suggestions that are then woven into stories together, with the Groundlings traveling back and forth through time, playing different characters in many different situations.
This special online version of the show takes place an hour on Wednesdays, starting at 11/10c (8:00 PT). Tickets are $8.00 and can be purchased at the show’s website. The show runs via Zoom and ticket holders will receive a link at least 24 hours prior for registration.
This weekâ€™s edition of The Crazy Uncle Joe Show (July 22) will feature special guest and Groundlings alum and all-around funny woman Cheryl Hines (Curb Your Enthusiasm), and next week (July 29) will feature special guest and Groundlings alum Mindy Sterling (Austin Powers). The weekly show cast includes Stephanie Courtney (Progressive Insuranceâ€™s Flo), Roy Jenkins (Modern Family), Brian Palermo (grown-ish), Leonard Robinson (Insecure), and Christen Sussin (The League).
I think my husband & I will be watching. Maybe we’ll see you on there!
