FERNDALE – Go Comedy! Improv Theater is set to premiere two shows Oct. 8: “Super Action News” and “Shim & D’rothy.” The new line-up replaces “Travel Earth Time Shares,” “Douche Douche Bhang Bhang,” “Silent” and “Matt Naas & The Sing A Long Singers.”

Go Comedy! is ready to go where local news fears to tread. “Super Action News” will take metro Detroiters to the funny side of the headlines. Quick bites, sketch comedy and in-depth reporting will shed a comedic light on what’s happening in metro Detroit and beyond. The “Super Action News” team – Anne Faba (Clinton Township), Louie Krause (Garden City), Matt Naas (Ferndale) and Mikey Wilson (Detroit) along with special guests and correspondents from the Go Comedy! family and stage manager Pete Jacokes (Ferndale) – present the latest scoop at 9 p.m. every Thursday night through Nov. 5.
“Shim and D’rothy” is written and performed by Go Comedy! member Ryan Parmenter (Southfield) and Carrie Hall (Berkley). Shim fancies himself a comedian. D’rothy fancies herself a social crusader. Together they put on a heck of a show that’s part educational presentation, part variety show, and a lot of hilarity.
Directed by Jaime Moyer (Detroit), with stage direction by Peter Jacokes (Ferndale), “Shim & D’rothy” incorporates multimedia elements by Mikey Brown (Ferndale) and choreography by Lauren Bickers (Ferndale). It plays at 9:30 p.m. Thursday nights through Nov. 5.
At 8 p.m. every Thursday night, the theater will showcase a series of Go Comedy! original presentations by members of Go Comedy!’s casts.
Tickets for Thursday nights at Go Comedy! are $10 for the night and are available by calling 248-327-0575 or in person beginning at 7 p.m. Wednesday-Sunday at the Go Comedy! box office.
Go Comedy! Improv Theater is located at 261 E. Nine Mile Road in Ferndale in the building formerly occupied by the Ferndale Secretary of State office.
