Last Saturday night I got to trek out to the Labelle Theater in South Charleston for an evening of improv comedy from the No Pants Players. It was a great night. The group was really hitting on all cylinders that night, and the all-ages audience was totally into their performance. For this performance, the pantsless crew was made up of Joe Wallace, Brian Roller, Tony Slack, Jason Dunbar, Jamie Dunbar, Duncan Stokes and Kevin Pauley, and they played their parts to perfection.
Last weekend, the No Pants Players worked with the “game” format of improv, which is great for audience participation and made for a very fast-paced show. I am eager to see what this talented crew can do working in the sketch form. Maybe we’ll get to see that in a future show.
It’s great that we can now see this sort of improv locally. Improv is a great way for young talents to develop their acting chops, and it’ll be interesting to see if any big, giant, Hollywood stars come out of this group. Keep checking PopCult for news on the next performance by the No Pants Players. And don’t just take my word about how much fun they are to watch. My fellow Gazzblogger Karin Fuller was also at Saturday night’s show, and writes about it here.
