Said And Done: Brush With Fame w/Rich Talarico

  • Urban Harvest Brewing Company 1024 S. 5th Street Milwaukee, WI 53204 (map)

Ampersand Theater Company is proud to present SAID AND DONE, a unique combination of story slam and improv. Each show features a unique theme to serve as inspiration for the comedy.

This month, the Said And Done team is joined by a very special guest: comedian RICH TALARICO, an Emmy-nominated and Peabody Award-winning writer and producer best known for his work on Comedy Central’s “Key & Peele.“

In addition to working on shows like ”SNL,” “Mad TV,” and “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” Rich is also a veteran improviser trained by Stephen Colbert, with extensive experience with storytelling-based improv in the long-running "Armando Diaz Experience, Theatrical Movement, and Hootenanny."

In honor of this very special guest, this month’s theme is BRUSH WITH FAME. Whether it was meeting your childhood idol, embarrassing yourself at a comic book convention, getting into a Twitter flame war with a Z-grade influencer, or the time you were on the local news, we want to hear about it!

Come to the show with a short (3 to 5-minute) prepared monologue, and let us know you'd like to participate. Speakers will be selected to share their tales during the show.

After your story is all SAID AND DONE, our ensemble (Mike Betette, Fredrick James Dakin III, Pat Dwyer, Patrick Guiney, Audra Handschke, Sam Hanson, Sean Keith, and Renee Ann) will perform a montage of improvised scenes inspired by it!

You’ll also see longform improv from House Tina Team HASENPFEFFER!

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!
