West of Shake Rag is Tupelo's very own Improv Comedy Troupe! What is improv? Improv can be thought of as "on the spot" or "off the cuff" spontaneous comedy driven by audience suggestion, and sometimes participation! In the tradition of Whose Line Is It Anyway?, Thank God You're Here, and NPR's Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me! no two shows are ever quite the same, but are sure to have you laughing!

Greetings, Shakerfans! It's been a while since our last update, but we're no less busy- if anything, we're more busy than we used to be! We've been hard at work on our Thursday shows, with regular performaces from Stranger, Are You Smiling? (see below!) as well as the occasional stand-up night, birthday party, or news brief performed by Carlton Wall. We came back from Chicago with all kinds of new shenanigans we intend to work in during future performaces, so look for those!

For those who have missed it, we have shows on Thursdays now! We perform almost every Thursday night (the exception being on the week of our monthly Saturday show) at 7PM at the Link. Tickets are still $5, and there are free snacks, as well as drinks sold. These shows differ from our Saturday shows (which are still on the 2nd Saturday of the month) in that they're themed for a more mature audience, and they vary completely in style from week to week. Sometimes we're doing shortform with Shortform Showdown, sometimes we're doing longform like West of Shakespeare or SoapProv, sometimes there's stand-up comedy or a performance by Glenn & Casey's Stranger, Are You Smiling?, and sometimes we're trying out a brand-new, never-before-seen, completely off-the-wall format just because we can. They're still completely improvised and based on your suggestions and participation, so come out and see what new shenanigans we're cooking up with Comedy Thursdays at the Link!

For more news on what we're doing on and off the web, be sure to check us out on Facebook! We do a lot of updating there these days, and that'll be the first place you see things like our posters and extra photos.
