The Armando Improv Comedy Show with guest host Lance Rice from the upcoming documentary Lance’s Brewery Tour at iO West
Saturday September 21st 2013 9:00 pm-10:30 pm
$10 for the show and no cover for the bar
The Armando Show at the iO West Theatre is a 90-minute improvised comedy show. The celebrity host (Armando) gives a personal and truthful improvised monologue based on an audience suggestion. The cast, composed of veteran Chicago and Los Angeles trained improvisers then perform scenes based on the monologue, which in turn inspires a response from the Armando. For a special event for LA Beer Week, the iO West in association with Rare Brain Studios and AmericanCraftBeer.com present Lance Rice from the upcoming documentary Lance’s Brewery Tour as the Armando!
Lance Rice has a rare photographic memory with a one-of-a-kind area of expertise… the history of beer. For more than 30 years, he has dreamed of writing a book on American beer history and he is currently traveling across the country to various craft breweries gathering information to write his book and achieve his dream. Lance is also autistic. The entire beer industry has welcomed Lance with open arms and his project is inspiring people every day and set to be the “can’t miss” beer movie and book for years to come. Join us at the iO for this one-time event to hear Lance’s anecdotes and to see improvisers perform comedy based off of those stories. The cameras for the documentary may even be filming the event.
The iO West improv theatre also has a full bar attached with eight handles which will tap specialty and hard to find crafts. At $4 a pint, the iO West has the lowest price for amazing crafts in LA. Some of the proceeds from event sales will go toward Lance’s Brewery Tour and future charity benefitting scholarships and occupational training for people who fall on the autism spectrum, and for farm sustainability. Tickets and information for the 9:00 pm show can be purchased online and will sell out soon: http://ioimprov.com/west/io/shows/the-armando-show. The iO bar will be open from 7:00 pm to 2:00 am if you want to drink inexpensive beer and support Lance. You may even be able to have a chat with Lance himself or be on film!
