I honestly don't know which is more enjoyable-the hilarity this crew makes out of thin air or how much they enjoy each other. Both are incredibly contagious and you leave much happier after any show. They take one word or phrase from the audience add immediate intelligence and tremendous humor every time. Please support this local treasure. All you have to do is show up and have fun. It costs so little and they truly care about everyone who enters their lair.
Cannot wait to share the stage with Dawn Rosenbaum again tonight as the lesser half of He Said/They Said !!! 7pm at the Blue Brick Theatre. Masks and vax proof required. BYOB!!! $12.50 As my dad would say, you can't beat that with a stick!!
Super fun opportunity with the Blue Brick Theatre and We're Locals! Join them on October 16 for presentations, surprises and much more!
Andrea McCloskey, associate professor of education (math education) started teaching at Penn State in 2008. She has a passion for solving problems. She also has a passion for making people laugh. Dr. McCloskey is one of the founding members of the comedy group Happy Valley Improv. You can catch shows on Friday nights in downtown State College at Blue Brick Theatre. The performances are unscripted and directed by audience participation. Dr. McCloskey uses her quick thinking to put on a show. She uses that same quick thinking to keep her students engaged and interested in the future of education.
Lots of laughter at the Blue Brick Theatre on October 1st! Be sure to buy your tickets below for a good time!
