While rainy days aren’t all that common in Orlando, especially days with so much of the wet stuff that it ruins outdoor plans, that doesn’t mean it will never happen. The good news is sunny skies are sure to reappear soon and in the meantime, you’ll find plenty to do indoors. From fascinating ...

Another class session in the books! Congratulations to these SAK Comedy Lab Level 3 class graduates. They did amazing in their showcase last night! Thank you for allowing me to help you as you continue through your improv journey. Good luck as you continue on to Level 4! w/ Mike Andrews, Taylor James Gorder, Duncan McMahon, Michael Patalano, Susan Barrie Sussman, Dan Wunderlich, Michael Furlong, Charm Baxter (not pictured).
I could not find or tag: Elliott Cooley, Sarah Drew, Darnell Kreuzer, William Logan, Joel Hoornstra, & Carlos Perero.
My cousin and his family were in town visiting his son at UCF during Hurricane Ian…so they all came out to SAK Comedy Lab to see a show on Sat., Oct. 1st, to get some laughs!
Terry and I met a dozen or so years ago. I had this idea where I wanted to gather a bunch of artists in Downtown Orlando. He helped connect me with other artists and community leaders, and in 2012, we facilitated performances throughout downtown everyday during the month of October.

Over the last 12 years, he has been a good friend to me and an amazing supporter of Creative City Project... as "Chief Arts Instigator" for Orange County, Florida Government.

Terry is passionate about art and its crucial role in making a place worth living and visiting. He's one of the original founders of SAK Comedy Lab, Orlando Fringe and FusionFest. And today, he continues to support dozens of arts organization and hundreds of artists.

I can honestly say that Creative City Project and IMMERSE would not be what they are today without his support and leadership. He's a true example of a community builder and arts supporter. Thanks for being awesome, Terry!

David Russell, president and a co-founder of SAK Comedy Lab has been with SAK since 1983 when it was a performing group at the newly opened Epcot Center at Walt Disney World. Russell was instrumental in SAK’s transition into a full-blown, brick and mortar theater company in downtown Orlando.
