Des Moines’ Local Improv Group Turns 14 Years Old!

Comedy XPeriment, Des Moines’ favorite improv group, returns to the Stoner Theater on May 5-6, 2017. The Omega Show features the local cast presenting a fan-favorite mix of short-form and long-form improvisation. Actors will book-end a thirty to forty minute improvised “play” based on a few suggestions from the audience with a barrage of high-energy and stylized short games. Suggestions from the audience are chosen randomly and have included such hits as “My Horse Loves My Dog” and “Mustafa’s Fifth Prelude”.

Comedy XPeriment shows last approximately 90 minutes, with a 10 minute, 01 second intermission. Each show is unique since it has never been rehearsed or performed before and will never been seen again! Since everything is improvised, even the performers themselves don’t know what’s going to happen. Story lines may cross over each other or merge into the end. Don’t be surprised if the actors commit light Treason or try to sell you Liberace’s candelabra!

All shows begin at 7:30pm (except New Year’s Eve!) and doors open at 7:00pm. Tickets are $12.00 and can be purchased in advance at the Des Moines Performing Arts website. They can also be purchased on the night of the shows at the Civic Center box office.
