Gag Reflex, Wesleyan’s Oldest Improv Comedy Group, is welcoming families for a fun and hilarious improv show this evening!
We perform a style of long-form improv comedy called the Armando, in which, upon receiving a word from the audience, one of us will tell a true-to-life monologue that we will use to inspire the rest of our scenes and stories. Bring your families, bring your friends, bring the people who might be upset if you called them that.
Where: World Music Hall
