Class Up Your Comedy

Dallas has a long way to go to achieving the kind of improv comedy scene that Chicago has become thanks in part to visionaries like The Second City and comedy buddha Del Close. We may reach that plateau one day in the distant future presumably sometime after the Goat Flu scourge has wiped out a decent cross section of humanity and President The Cable Guy declares war on the company that bought Budweiser and technically turned it into an imported beer. Even if those events don’t happen, we’re off to a good start with local comedy improv favorites like Franzia and Roadside Couch, two of the crown jewels in the cap of the local long form improv powerhouse that is the Dallas Comedy House (2645 Commerce St.). Both groups will take to the theater’s tiny black stage at 9 p.m. Friday, Feb. 6th. Advanced tickets are $8 each and general admission tickets are $10 at the door.
