NBC’s Today in the Bay’s Mike Inouye Jumps Into Action for a Fast-paced Improv Comedy Show at Ohlone College - Press Release, Office of College Advancement
Fremont, CA—They say laughter is the best medicine. It can even help you lose a few pounds along the way! How? Well, it’s because comedy can be a sport as well.
ComedySportz is the award-winning interactive comedy show where two teams of "act-letes" compete for audience laughs and points while improvising scenes, games, and musicals based on audience suggestions. The teams will be breaking all the rules, so expect nothing but fast and fun improv comedy for all audiences when they take the stage in the Smith Center at Ohlone College on May 2 at 8:30pm. This special performance features comedian and traffic news anchor Mike Inouye of NBC’s Today in the Bay.
Each ComedySportz show is different. Everyone gets involved as audience members shout out cues to the players that will prompt the next turn of comic events. “The performance you see will never, ever be repeated because everything’s made up right there on the spot,” said Inouye.
A South Bay native, Inouye serves as NBC’s weekday morning traffic anchor. In addition to reporting traffic, Inouye has a passion for live performance. He has appeared in multiple venues including the Comedy Store in Hollywood, and with various clubs and Bay Area theatre companies, including ComedySportz’ San Jose chapter, where he performs as a professional improvisational comedian.
No time outs… just a fast-paced improv comedy that pulls you into the action. Bring the entire family, be prepared to laugh out loud, and don’t miss the show at the Smith Center at Ohlone College. For more information or to purchase tickets, please visit www.smithcenter.com.
