MTV at Improv Asylum

BOSTON, May 2 -- Hot on the heels of Comedy Central heading to Improv Asylum to audition Asylum cast members for The Daily Show, this week MTV is headed to the Asylum as well. MTV is holding a closed audition casting for a new sketch comedy pilot called Clownin'.

Improv Asylum's current main stage show, "Monkey Trial and Error ... or, You Say You Want an Evolution," has performances Thursday at 8 pm, and Friday and Saturday at 8 pm and 10 pm.

"Monkey Trial & Error ..." includes sketches about the evolution of lying, dying and crying over cigarettes. Throw in a French baby assassin, an evil professor bent on destruction and a song extolling the virtues of Intelligent Design and the result is comedy that's evolved above the rest. The sketches are combined with Improv Asylum's trademark audience-inspired improvised scenes to create an interactive comedy experience like no other. "Monkey Trial & Error ... or, You Say You Want an Evolution." Improv and sketch comedy, intelligent by design.

Improv Asylum has performed over 3,000 shows for over 500,000 people, making audiences laugh some 25 million times. The acclaimed improv and sketch comedy company boasts six weekly shows at their 216 Hanover Street theater in Boston's North End. Improv Asylum also has casts in Los Angeles and New York and has been featured on HBO.

"Monkey Trial & Error ... or, You Say You Want an Evolution," Improv Asylum's main stage show runs Thursdays at 8:00 pm and Fridays and Saturdays at 8:00 pm and 10:00 pm. "Vanity Project," a fully improvised show featuring the founders of Improv Asylum, mainstage alumni and celebrity guests plays every Wednesday at 8:00 pm. "The Madness," a show featuring interactive video, music and improvisational mayhem runs Thursdays at 10:00 pm after the mainstage show. "College SmackDown," a college improvisational competition plays Fridays at midnight. The infamous "Midnight Show" happens on Saturdays at midnight.
