CSzCSz Houston

ComedySportz Houston has officially closed the doors on Gigglyfield at 901 Town and Country and has taken up residence at the Holiday Inn West-Energy Corridor.  Make sure you catch a show in their new temporary digs while their new hilarity haven is under construction.  Check their website for details and directions.

In other news, make sure you check out NBC’s new Fall series, Constantine, co-starring one of the original members of CSz Houston, David Born.  Congrats David!

Dark MatterStation Theater

In addition to their regular shows Thursday through Saturday nights, Station is adding Dark Matter on Friday nights at 10:30pm.  It promises great late night comedy, and unhindered imagination.

September also hails a change in the Station line up.  Their featured show on Thursdays, Structure, will be showcasing the form “The Pretty Flower.”  This long form improv format is an evolution of a mono scene that allows players to explore additional wo
rlds of a base scene through deconstruction and tag-outs.  Structure shows are always a lot of fun, so don’t miss it.

September also hails the rotation of the cast line-ups for the Supernova Armando on Fridays and Station’s student showcase, Launchpad 4.0.  Make sure you head on over to the theater at 1230 Houston Ave and check out the new folks.
