ImprovBoston Strong


The events in Boston this week have been surreal.

For the last two years working as the Managing Director of ImprovBoston (Cambridge, MA) I've realized just how small our comedy community can feel and the impact we have on each other. Tonight ImprovBoston planned on opening its doors for FREE so that the people of Boston could laugh together. Now, because the shelter-in-place warning in Boston and Cambridge does not seem like it will be lifted, Mike Descoteaux (IB Artistic Director) and I made the hard call for ImprovBoston to remain closed.

I've been on lock-down in Massachusetts since 6AM, spending my day online and on the phone, not laughing, watching updates, coordinating staff and our community, and I've felt the pull to do something. While we regroup here in Boston and discuss how, as an organization, to give back directly, I've made the personal decision to donate 100% of ticket sales from DSI shows this weekend to ONE FUND BOSTON on behalf of ImprovBoston.

Laughter is the best medicine we have to give.

Laugh and help DSI support Boston!

Get out and see shows while our friends in Boston stay safe.

Thank you.
