Event Description

I hope you can join me for some heartbreaking hilarity on Valentines Day. 2 shows 8&10!

THORNS: Valentines Day Isn't Just for Lovers...
An ImprovBoston Celebration of The Hilarity of Heartbreak...

"Let's See Other People". "No, no, no - it's not you, it's me...". It's Valentine's Day at ImprovBoston— and anybody who believes that "'tis better to have loved and lost," has clearly never had their heart ripped from their chest and stomped into the ground!

Join the team that critics around the Hub Area are calling Boston's BEST comedy for a night showcasing the hilarity of heartbreak and the funny to be found in finding love. Let ImprovBoston distract you from the torture of Valentine's Day for about an hour and a half.

Dumped, disheartened, or disillusioned, ImprovBoston has the show for you. Thorns is hosted by Deana Criess Tolliver and T.C. Cheever, and features rants, monologues, original songs, and short films from some of Boston's top talents as well as from comedians around the nation. After all, heartbreak is universal.

looks great - a person could do a double feature -"errors of eros" at Ryles and then "thorns" at IB. Love the candy hearts - very cool!
