NEW YORK! Del Close Marathon 12

27 07 2010

Zach Ward, Jeremy McDonald, Paula Pazderka and Harrison Brookie head to New York this weekend to represent DSI Comedy Theater at the 12th Annual Del Close Marathon. It has been an incredible honor for MISTER DIPLOMAT to take the stage at the UCB Theatre over the past couple years.

For 2010 MrD performs Sunday 8/1 230PM at the UCB — Are you coming?

For the DCM we are sadly down Andy Lavender (Andy may be off performing some amazing feats of Chemisty or SAVING THE WORLD!)

Both AU JUS and THE 708 are representing the DSI Comedy Theater Harold program in New York, so you should check them out and support HAROLD —  (The 708, Saturday 12pm Hudson Guild and AU JUS, Sunday 1pm Hudson Guild).

New York should get our song ready. Love, Mister Diplomat

The Onion and Improv Sitting in a Tree

8 07 2010

I’ve suspected for a while that The Onion, a satirical newspaper, had some kind of relationship with improvisation. With articles like this and graphics like this the writers clearly know something about the subculture that is improv comedy. I’ve even recognized improvisers from their Onion News Network videos (not to be confused with DSI Witness News). Here’s Improv Everywhere’s Charlie Todd discussing  how all wrestling fans are actually paid professionals:

But my suspicion has been confirmed by yet another reference to improvisation in this recent video (at the 1 minute 20 second mark):

Who else could know that nerd male improvisers only talk to nerd girls improvisers? Speaking of, if you’re interested in becoming either one of those, Zach Ward’s 101/201 summer intensive has 2 spots left!
