The Journal w/Professor Merryweather's Time-Traveling Improv Show

Mojo Dojo Comedy is proud to present THE JOURNAL, a longform improv show that pushes the boundaries of collective storytelling in fun and exciting ways.

Inspired by an audience member's life, a narrator recounts chapters from their personal journal. As the cast (Tony Berg, Tim Farley, Erik Koconis, Lee Rowley, Tess Rutkowski, Chris Schmidt, Luke Summers, Jonathan Wachala) brings the story to life, new characters, themes and plotlines are added. New narrators incorporate these into the larger tale, and--hopefully--wrap everything up in hilarious, satisfying conclusion!

You'll also be experience the impossible wonder of PROFESSOR MERRYWEATHER'S TIME-TRAVELING IMPROV SHOW. Witness a spectacle unlike any other as Professor Merryweather himself (Vince Figueroa) uses his time-traveling hot air balloon to assemble an improv group from across time and space (Kristin Althoff, C.J. Guzan, Robin Lewis, Tony Mayer, Móni Murphy, and Hunter West)

It all takes place at Urban Harvest Brewing Company, where they brew hand-crafted ales and lagers in small batches several times a week. This creates a versatile line-up of beers to choose from, as well as adventurous seasonal and specialty brews.

Enjoy a pint or two before, during and after the show!
