Local actor Jeff Swearingen, who we may have called "the funniest actor in North Texas" a few times (unless we're writing a review of a show with Andy Baldwin in it...we go back and forth), sends word of an ambitious venture, involving 48 hours of nonstop improv.
Fun House Theatre and Film, a new group he founded, along with Alternative Comedy Theatre and a collective of local improvisers, will attempt to break the world record for long-form improv. The event happens Oct. 7-9 at the Cox Building Playhouse, 1517 Avenue H in Plano. (And now we want to know what the current world record is.)
This long-form improv piece will feature one story, following a continuous thread, created by audience suggestion at 8 p.m. on Friday night and will run nonstop for more than 48 hours. 100 percent of the proceeds will go to Orphan Outreach, an organization that improves the lives of orphans and at-risk children through early intervention, education, and humanitarian aid. The story line will also be available on Twitter and updated throughout the entire weekend.
It begins at 8 p.m. Friday, Oct. 7 and runs 48 continuous hours. A single ticket is $10, or get a pass for $20, which is good for multiple visits.
