So, my fledgling improv team, “Jabberwocky” has changed its name to the similarly sourced “Vorpal.” “Vorpal” sounds faster, and everyone knows that the most important property of an improv team name is how fast it sounds.
In addition to a fast-sounding name, you need promotional photos with actors in silly poses. Fortunately, I’ve got the camera equipment, and fellow troupe member Colin lives in a magical Wonderland with a huge white cyc wall. Silly poses, ahoy!
We’ve been booking shows at a very scary pace for a brand new troupe. We’ve hit the ground running! Our upcoming shows are:
Monday, August 9, 2010, 8:00 PM
38-01 23rd Ave., Astoria (Between 38th St. and Steinway, above Astoria Sound Works)
FREE! (This show is just kind of a warm-up in front of a friendly audience, and get a clean promotional video. If you’re poor and live in Astoria, this is the show for you!)

Hm, it just occurred to me that I have no idea where this one actually is. I guess I’ll need to find out before I promote it. Watch this space! 🙂
