Critic Christy here, and ready to give you the goods on local Improv Group: SAK Comedy Lab!
To start with, I just want to say that THIS IS ONE OF MY FAVORITE ACTIVITIES in Orlando! No, seriously! If truth be told, I have been visiting SAK since my freshman year at UCF wayyyy way back in 2008. After my first visit, I was hooked! They always have a hilarious cast that keeps me laughing every time I visit!
So who are they? What do they do? The SAK casts are made up of a variety of performers (different nights are for different “skill levels” and corresponding prices) who are great at making stuff up…funny stuff!
Their main show is called “Duel of Fools” and is fairly similar to such shows as “Who’s Line is it Anyway…” you might even recognize some SAK graduates **cough cough Wayne Brady** who got their start at SAK wayyyy back when! Dual of Fools is by far my favorite performance, so if you can choose only one…CHOOSE THIS ONE!!
Gorilla Theatre, a sort of improv competition, is one of their newest, yet amusing, shows put on by their “professionals,” while the Lab Rats and Gen S are shows in Tuesdays and Wednesdays by SAK students, or those who are newer to performing. Don’t worry, though, they can be equally funny as the weekend ensemble!
Finally, there is also an Early Show over the weekends, but I have not had the opportunity to go at this time ever.
What else can I say about my favorite downtown activity besides GO! You WILL love it, and you WILL go back for more!! This is way to short of a post to adequately sum up all of what SAK is or how amazing they are, but that’s all you get for now!! 10.9/10!! Christy out!
I am not going to write as much, but I will say that I didn’t know what to expect when I went to SAK, but I do like Who’s Line, and I really like the shows that I have gone to! 9/10!
