Fifthwall Comedy Troop performing tonight

Blue Valley’s own improvisation group, Fifthwall Comedy Troupe, performs its first 2010 show today at 7:00 in the PAC with doors opening at 6:45. There is no entry fee but the group encourages donations to the American Cancer Society.

The group originally started by former BV student Alex Nichols is now led by junior Joseph Davies.

Tonight’s show will be strictly improvisation so the performers will have no preparation time for their skits.

“Every scene we create is based on audience suggestion, so everything must be made up on the spot,” Davies said.

The comedy troupe decided to donate to the American Cancer Society in order to raise enough money to participate in the event.

“The Fifthwall Comedy Troupe is almost always invited by the Relay for Life committee to perform at the actual event, so we just decided to form a team for Relay this year,” Davies said. “The money is just something all teams need to raise, so we just do it improv style.”
