Have you ever read a poorly written novel and thought to yourself, who publishes this crap? Or come across a hilariously out of date self-help book in a thrift store? Perhaps you flipped through Sarah Palin’s/ Justin Beiber’s/ R. Kelly’s etc. autobiography and guffawed at her/his life story. Well, that’s what Say Wha?! is all about.

At Say Wha?! engaging and charismatic performers put their comedic spin on some of the most cringe-worthy, embarrassing and painfully earnest writing in print.

Instant Comedy is an unpredictable comedy mash up of improvisation and stand-up with comics creating a brand new set-list of jokes based entirely off your audience-suggestions. During Instant Comedy, our stand-ups have no more than 30 minutes to prepare brand new material based off of audience-suggested topics. Each comic has seven minutes to wow you with the fresh new jokes they just cooked up and at the end of the evening you crown your winner. Simple huh? The show will feature the Curious Comedy Playas, performing an improvised set while the stand-ups are feverishly writing their material.
