Comedy in a yoga studio? It happens.
The Young Geologists, a sketch troupe featuring two of my favorite comedy peoples Erin Rodgers and Gillian English, host a monthly sketch/stand-up show at The Theatre Elusive, whose headquarters appear to be in a yoga studio, given the nice wooden floors and all the mats.
It wasn’t super packed, but what I got out of this space was a sense of community and support among performers and other comics and friends in the audience, which I think many might agree, can be hard to come by in this often competitive field. Also, just a solid night of comedy – the always hilarious stand-up of Luke Gordon Field, and some great sketches by The Whisky Dicks & The Young Geologists, both troupes I hadn’t yet seen perform, so it was great to finally get to see ’em!
The audience was warm and receptive and most stuck around afterwards to indulge in the complimentary beer, cookies and berries. It might not be huge, but this show is funny, warm, free and offers a space to perform on a Friday, which is awesome!
I was very pleased to be a part of this show and I look forward to doing it again sometime ! 🙂
