You can catch Not Burnt Out Just Unscrewed, (NBOJU), a madcap improv comedy troupe this Friday, August 7, at Revolutionary Grounds Books and Coffee, Fourth Avenue’s new(ish) coffeehouse (606 North 4th Ave, where Rainbow Planet used to be).
NBOJU was created in 2002 as an outlet for actors, comedians, and performers in the Tucson area. Founder Dana Cianciotto hoped to bring together a unique group of people from different backgrounds with different levels of experience to create a well rounded and eclectic performance troupe.
Over the years they’ve had a change of personnel but their commitment to zany comedic entertainment has stayed true. In addition to performing a 21+ show twice a month at The Executive Inn and Suites, and shows in different venues around town, they work with organizations and corporations to tailor shows and workshops for specific needs.
The show starts at 7:30 on the back patio. Get there early to grab a drink and a snack and then watch as they create quick paced games and scenes based on audience suggestion and participation.
It’s fun, funny and free although donations are happily and gratefully accepted.
