The Phelps Museum is pleased to announce an evening of top-notch improv comedy. Recent graduates of Tim Mollen’s workshop program will take the Phelps Mansion Ballroom stage at 8 p.m. on Friday, March 24. Audience participation will be a key ingredient in this lively and unpredictable performance. Admission tickets are $10 and may be purchased at the door. Because the material will be unscripted, parental guidance is suggested.

This is Mollen’s 11th improv workshop, but it has not been offered in three years. The performers are J.J. Bullis, Meredith Coles, Antonia Lobacz, Heather Micha, Jim Melby, Heather Merlis, Rachael Paz, and Doug Swift.

Mollen is a native of Binghamton, and a graduate of the Theatre Department at SUNY Oswego. While at Oswego, he founded an improv comedy troupe called The Shaun Cassidy Fan Club, which is now a campus institution celebrating its 26th season. After college, Mollen moved to Chicago, where he studied with the legendary Second City Improv Conservatory. For the next ten years, he performed and wrote comedy in the Washington, DC area. He spent a year as a writer/performer with the nationally renowned political comedy troupe Gross National Product. As a member of Washington’s ComedySportz troupe, he developed his own workshop program to introduce students to the exhilarating world of improv comedy.
