What we're about
You are improvising every day of your life.
Experience the joy of improv!
The purpose of our Improv Comedians group is to introduce free family friendly weekly improv comedy workshops through the Monkey Butler improv comedy co-sponsored organization, and invite other improv comedy groups to collaborate with the Monkey Butler organization.
Why learn improv comedy? "Your life is not scripted. You are improvising every day of your life." says Monkey Butler improv coach Tom Grimmer. As Improv Comedians' co-organizer, I believe improv comedy guides us to experience the joy of improv! "Your life is not scripted. You are improvising every day of your life." Fran Rew, co-organizer of Improv Comedians, believes that the lessons of improv comedy are exercises in experiencing the joy of improv, in our everyday lives.
So who should join us? Everyone, of all ages!
For the summer of 2018, Monkey Butler's free weekly Thursday night workshops will be located in downtown Denver, on the west boundary of the Platt River, at 3455 West Ringsby Court, Suite 102, Denver, CO 80216.
Our improv comedy coach, Tom Grimmer, was trained in improv comedy at the SAK Comedy Lab in Orlando, Florida, with the Disney World staff, and with the famous "Who's Line iIs It Anyway?" improv comedian, Wayne Brady.
The Monkey Butler Denver improv comedians (http://www.monkeybutlerdenver.com/) weekly Thursday 7-9 PM workshops are a mix of beginner, intermediate and advanced improv comedy performers. Monkey Butler's intermediate and advanced level performers are available for hire (http://www.monkeybutlerdenver.com/hire-us/) at special events. Their mixed beginner, intermediate and advanced performers continue to perform at community service events.
Tim Cress (Diver Tim), founder of Monkey Butler Denver, is a Seventh Day Adventist pastor, actor, improv comedy coach, and most especially an ocean-loving scuba diver, with his beautiful multi-talented wife and 2 children. Even though Tim has moved his family back to their roots in Los Angeles, California, thanks to the support of LifeSource Adventist Fellowship (http://lafdenver.org) (LAF), since 2010, Monkey Butler Denver continues to grow in Denver, Colorado.
Most the the Monkey Butler Denver group news is shared on their group Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/groups/monkeybutlerdenver/members/).
As a member of this Improv Comedians group on Meetup, even if you're not with Monkey Butler, you are welcome to post and host your own choice of improv comedy events throughout the Denver metro area.
