Improv Comedy for Rochester, NY
The Village Idiots is an improv comedy troupe comprised of local Rochester, NY talent that perform in the Village Gate Square (near the Memorial Art Gallery). They stay busy all year long by:
- performing three shows a weekend,
- offering improv comedy and acting classes,
- hosting improv comedy competitions, and
- exploding Diet Coke/Mentos every New Year's Eve!
The Pillar Theater is so named because there is a very large, obtrusive pillar in the middle of the stage. The performers and most audiences don't seem to mind. This black box theater seats over 50 people, and there is no age restriction. Concessions include: coffee, soda, candy bars, chips, and other high-fructose corn syrup products.
Also, there are several restaurants/bars next the theater. We always recommend making an evening of it by dining at one of our awesome neighbors, and then coming over to see a show.
BYOB. You are allowed to bring alcohol into the theater and drink responsibly, if you behave. But, of course, management reserves the right to remove unruly patrons.
