Bovine Metropolis Theater is a company that performs, teaches and offers theatrical improvisation and comedy experience at the heart of Denver Theater District. Currently at its 10th year, it offers various improv shows suited for all ages.
Enjoy the On The Spot Show, dubbed by the theatre as the “fastest and funniest hour on earth!” The show has been a local favorite, which makes use of the unique suggestions of audience to improvise games, songs and scenes. Up to 25 games are performed in a single show. This makes it perfect for birthdays, anniversaries, company parties, bachelor and bachelorette parties or any event. With the “Whose Line is it Anyway” style, a moderator and four actors incorporate audience suggestions for an action-filled night of craziness.
Improv Hootenanny will surely improve one’s night. In the past decade, almost every improv group in the state has played at the theater in all styles of imaginable improv. Appropriate for all ages, tickets will cost $7.
