Twice a month it is the quaint custom of the improvisers in our fair town to engage in a civilized yet invigorating contest of wills called “The Derby.” This local curiosity features four jolly teams of improvisers competing in games, scenes, and every sort of improv-related chicanery in an attempt to win the prized personal possessions of the other players. Very civilized indeed!How much is a ringside seat at this carnival of competition? Nary a cent. (That’s FREE!) So reserve your ticket now!
