Outliars Improv Comedy show at the Renaissance Hotel – Glendale is sure to entice hotel guests and area residents, alike. For individuals looking for something different to do in the West Valley, this is a great show at a great location. Just show up, and purchase a $10 ticket, and enjoy laugh-out-loud comedy while sipping on a cocktail, or for beer lovers, beer. Just be sure to take a drink in between skits because the show is spontaneous and can trigger a laugh.

The Renaissance Hotel - Glendale offers various food and drink options. Hungry show goers can also order high class, scrumptious food while watching the show. The quesadilla is crispy, filled with flavor, and is stuffed with choice of chicken or steak, pepperjack cheese, cilantro, corn, and peppers. There are various starters to choose from, all at a reasonable prize. For those who want a sandwich or burger, there are Panini, sandwich, and burger options ranging from $7 to $10. Upscale dinner is also available. Choose from the Cowboy Ribeye to Honey Fried Chicken. Dinner prices range from $13 to $25. Dave Thurston and his comedy troupe will offer entertainment while guest chomp and delectable food.

So what is improv comedy anyway, and how does the show play out?

The show begins by introducing the comedians who are also considered actors, then, dives in and asks audience members for suggestions. Thurston, who acts as a host and organizer of the show, will ask guests a question to start a skit. For example, he might ask, “Name a crowded public place?” That is when the audience shouts out suggestions, “airport, mall, ect.” Thurston offers a unique spin on how to make the show more entertaining by changing up how the audience offers suggestions. Sometimes he will ask anyone in the audience to volunteer and offer information about themselves, and in turn, the cast will create a spontaneous comedy skit, based off the provided information by a volunteer guest. Thurston might ask the guest, “Describe what you did today” or “What is your idea of a perfect date?”

What’s better is Thurston does not push audience members to participate. It is solely up to them if they want to be a part of the show.
