The Merge: A Reckless Nexus of Improv and Stand-up Madness!

The Merge returns to the stage on Friday, May 18th (tickets available here). Are you ready? Can you handle this revolutionary mashup of improv and stand-up comedy? Before answering, let’s first take a look at what The Merge has to offer.

What is… The Merge?  

Listen up  – The Merge isn’t your average comedy show. Far from it. The Merge is all about blazing new trails. Shifting paradigms. Reimagining what a comedy show can be. The Merge isn’t concerned with “rules” or “norms” or “traditions” or falling in line. Nope, not a single care in the world for that kind of nonsense. Save that for The Squares, ya dig? When The Merge starts worrying about fitting in, you’ll know that The Merge has lost its way. Or that its been taken over by Big Comedy. Or bodysnatched and replaced with its Evil Twin or some sort of cyborg doppelganger. Short of those randomly posited scenarios taking place, The Merge will always be the real deal: An unconventional, iconoclastic comedy show that’s reshaping the comedy world.

How so?

With variety. Mixing things up. By bringing together comedy’s most polarized camps – improv and stand-up – and having them put on a show together. The result of this devil-may-care approach is an Improv Lab show that combines stand-up sets from local and touring comics followed by the unpredictable improv comedy from MBI’s madcap cast. And in the night’s final act of brazen nonconformist behavior, the stand-up comics join MBI cast members onstage to play improv games.
