Theatre 99 pulls out all its improv tricks with ‘the Funny Bucket’

Brandy and Greg Sullivan run Theatre 99, a comedy club known for its improv shows. (Jason Bennet/File).

Whenever boredom strikes on an idle evening, always keep Theatre 99 in mind. It’s that trusty downtown comedy club that seems to have something out of the ordinary up its sleeve just about every night of the week. Plus, most of its laugh-out-loud improv events cost as much as, if not less than, a movie theater ticket. This weekend, you can check out the Funny Bucket, a new show that puts all the venues’ improv games into an actual bucket, which are drawn at random and acted out on the spot by a group of six of the club’s talented actors such as Andy Adkins, Greg Tavares and Jessica Mickey. Then in the second act, the group takes on a longer-form improv set. If you’ve never seen one of the shows at Theatre 99, this could be a good way to get cozy with the club’s side-splitting performance style.

When: 8 p.m. Friday
