Bad Habits - Week 5: Post-Election Conversation

  • Annoyance Theatre 367 Bedford Avenue Brooklyn, NY, 11211 United States (map)

BAD HABITS is a month long social/improvisational experiment. 

each week, the cities most degenerate, despicable, and deplorable improvisers and comedians will be challenged to give up their bad habits for the sake of comedy. 

the show will commence with one of the most difficult habits to kick: coffee and cigarettes. For the entire week leading up to the performance, one group of comedians will throw away their cigarettes and vapes while the other group will cut their starbucks membership cards in half. 

WEEK 1 (10/16/16): COFFEE and CIGARETTES — no cigarettes, no coffee for an entire week. half the group will be asked to give up smoking, the other half caffeine. 

WEEK 2 (10/23/16): DRINKING — no alcohol, except, not exactly. one group will be asked to give up alcohol for the entire week before the show. the other half will be asked to get drunk before and during the performance. 

WEEK 3: (10/30/16): SUGAR and SLEEP — one group will be required to give up sugar for the entire week before the performance. the other group cannot sleep for 36 hours straight. 

WEEK 4 (11/6/16): BOOK CLUB — the entire group will be required to read a book or a play the week before the performance. the show will focus on the piece of literature we’ve read.
