OOB 2008 Recommendations

Out of Bounds Improv Festival and Miniature Golf Tournament is almost here!

It’s the highlight of the improv year as troupes come in from around the country to perform. There are shows, classes, panel discussions, parties, and of course mini golf. Every year I give my recommendations of shows, since there’s so much going on. I tend to favor out of town performances, since it’s a once a year opportunity.
