On January 31, 2014 I was supposed to attend the grand opening of the new digs of this Not Burnt Out Just Unscrewed improv comedy group at 3244 E. Speedway (across from the Loft Cinema). However, there were intervening circumstances since the Tucsoncitizen.com was suddenly shut down that day without any warning to us loyal bloggers. (My life that day got a bit “unscrewed” so I guess I can identify. I should have seen the humor in it).
Luckily I had been invited to attend their UT VIP preview opening, and finally last night was able to catch up with this lively group of comedians, who like to stand up (or sit) on their new stage and have lots of fun. And they had been entertaining folks around Tucson for 12 years in different locales, before building their own theater in midtown. And it is their 12th anniversary celebration this weekend.
Info: http://www.unscrewedtheater.org/. Shows are every Friday & Saturday at 7:30 p.m. for only $5/person. You can buy tickets online or at the door. There’s also an “uncensored” (adults only) show at 9:30 p.m. on the 4th Saturdays of the month, which is tonight. Also check out their FB page for updates, photos and contests to win tickets. They offer improv classes, are available for hire, and rent out that theater space as well.
And here’s a 5/15/14 link to an interview about this theater troupe on Az Illustrated Arts: https://originals.azpm.org/p/azill-arts/2014/5/15/35302-az-illustrated-arts-thursday-may-15-2014/
