We've all got one. That one family member whose odd behaviors, strange choices, or outright ludicrousness of character always keeps the family talking. Your cousin Blake, who works in a morgue... and takes his work home with him. Your uncle Peter, who got too drunk in the backyard and trampled Grandma Sally's begonias... and Grandma Sally. Your aunt Hilda, and her cats... so many cats. Who knew it was legal to own that many cats? Wait... IS it legal to own that many cats? We meant to say: your RENEGADE aunt Hilda, fugitive from justice, and her ferocious feline army.
We've all got one.
This Saturday, March 2, at 8pm, Riot Improv will pull inspiration directly from YOU, the audience, and all the weird and wonderful your stories you can tell about YOUR quirky family - in order to craft a performance that is fun, funny, and made possible only by YOU!

WHY?!!?? OH, GOD, WHY?!!?!??!!???
Hey - if you want to go through the (sometimes EXTREMELY quirky) roller coaster of your family dynamics alone, that's your prerogative. But why not bring us along for the ride?
