Name: Bridge City Improv presents: Broad Selection & High Rollers
Date: February 23, 2024
Time: 7:30 PM - 9:00 PM PST
Event Description:

An evening of improv comedy right in the heart of Portland's Hawthorne District! On this night, Bridge City Improv presents two stalwart improv indie groups featuring talent which helped shape the Portland improv scene we know and love today. First up, High Rollers (Beau Brousseau, Kyle Stebbins, Bill Cernanksy, Daryl Olson). These distinguished gents collectively cover the comedy gamut with humor bold as cabernet, dry as champagne, and smart as a craft cocktail.

Then make way for Broad Selection (Katie Nguyen, Betse Green, Lisa Brousseau, Janet Scanlon, Whitney Johnson, Adrienne Flagg, Kerry Leek, Mariah Muñoz), a powerhouse of some of Portland’s most experienced improv performers and teachers. The troupe formed at the Brody Theater in 2003 (as Girls! Girls! Girls!), and they were featured artists at the 2017 and 2019 Stumptown Improv Festivals. The work of Broad Selection always centers around sharing true personal stories. Their current format builds off a rhythmic presentation of stories that inspire improvised tales that are fun, witty, and often quite moving.

"Bridge City Improv brings together combinations of some of the finest Portland improvisers to create performances that are smart, funny, unpredictable, and joyous. They’re not afraid to address the human condition head on, but also are not afraid to just get completely silly."   — Barbara Scott, founding member of BATS Improv, San Francisco
