CULTURE OF COMEDY FOCUS OF HCC PERFORMANCES

BRIDGEPORT – The Culture of Comedy will be spotlighted Thursday, Oct. 20 when the comedy group Gotham City Improv makes a two-part appearance at Housatonic Community College.

The group will conduct a workshop with HCC Theater Arts students from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. , in which a performance piece will be developed. At 6:30 p.m., the piece developed in the workshop will be performed and the group will give a solo performance.  Both events will be held in the Performing Arts Center in Lafayette Hall.

The events, which are open to the public at no charge, are being held as part of the college’s Third Thursday Cultural Celebration series. During most months in the academic year, a performing artist representing a specific culture comes to the college on the third Thursday to develop and perform a piece with Theater Arts students and give a solo performance.
