Pimprov Knows What You Want, Baby

Photobucket - Video and Image HostingThis Friday at 9 PM, Schadenfreude will be throwing their July rent party at the Gallery Cabaret. Rumor is that it will be a variety-show type extravaganza. Performers will include Chicago writer Claire Zulkey, Pajama Men, Deb Downing, and Pimprov, who are currently at IO.

Pimprov performer Marz Timms, who has performed in more festivals than you can say in one breath, shares some favorite improv festival memories:

"The thing I like most about festivals is that you're performing with the best and brightest improvisers. Everyone is on their A game, even in improv, where sometimes it can be a crap shoot.

"My favorite experience might be performing at the Del Close Marathon in New York. We were about to walk on stage, and I look back and Horatio Sanz is standing behind me. I said 'Are you coming on stage with us?' He said 'Yes, but I don't have pimp costume.' So he decided to come out and introduce us. It was a packed house, and he introduced us as his favorite improv group from Chicago. We hit the stage with our music blaring, and the audience went nuts. I was so excited that a little trickle of pee ran down my leg...just kidding."
