3rd Annual OC Improv Cup

It's that time of the year again, where all the improv troupes in Orange County gather together to perform for a worthy cause. That event is the OC Improv Cup headed by the Spectacles Improv Engine in Fullerton, CA. Friday & Saturday November 16 & 17.

Secret City Comics Society is pleased to participate for the second year in a row and we had a great time performing and building bonds with other groups in the area. Last year, we helped raise over $3,000 for the Painted Turtles organization and audience donations helped with donations during the show that night.

The OC Improv Cup is truly a unique improv event. It's not a competition of all the improv troupes in Orange County to see who's best. 2 Members from each group are paired with 2 members of another group and they work together to make you laugh.

Just so you're aware of what's happening the weekend of the cup (this weekend)...

Friday, we are performing a warm up show at 8:00 pm at our theater. We'll then head to Stages Theatre at 11:00 when our first members compete. This night half the participates will be eliminated based on show performance by professional comedy judges.

Saturday, all members will move on to the next day (because we're that good!) and at 6:00, we compete and  winning will be based on Audience vote. If you can attend Saturday's show, we could use the votes.

Here are the Secret City Members competing in this year's cup.

Joey Shope and Keegan Lund

Daniel Eachus and Dimithri Perea

Rocco Ambrosio and Jared Lomeli

The Painted Turtle offers children with serious medical conditions and their families a unique camp experience designed to foster personal growth and exploration. Our goal is to empower campers—to make new friends, try new things, build self-confidence, and become more independent in their medical care. In short, we aspire to help our campers discover all that is possible in their lives.

If you want to help, here's how!
