Last night Hashtag Comedy performed with WNCI's Kelsey Webb and Medha Gandhi at Shadowbox Live's Backstage Bistro! It was really an honor to be joined by these two lovely ladies in our improv comedy show. The first half was comprised of improv comedy games, with some help from our two special guests. This was followed by three stories by Kelsey and Gandhi, that were the basis for improvised scenes by the members of Hashtag Comedy. Thanks again to all who came out and we hope to have these two back soon!

On Tuesday, Hashtag Comedy presented its very first musical improv show in the Green Room at the Short North Stage, joined by many talented improvisers and musical performers from across Columbus. The musical was "TBD" - the title was chosen by audience suggestion!

The first half was "The Exorcist, starring Christopher Walken as the Priest." This was followed by "Supreme Court: The Musical." We were so happy so many people came out - setting a new record for attendance at a Hashtag Comedy show at the Garden. We plan to perform more musicals in the future, making this into a regular feature.

Hashtag Comedy performed at Shadowbox Live's Backstage Bistro as a fundraiser in conjunction with the Central Ohio Alzheimer's Association and Walk (Marilyn's Mighty Memory Makers Walk Team). Our snazzy new shirts were donated by our friends at the 90/10 Collection. Proceeds from ticket sales, purchase of #ENDALZ t-shirts and other donations totaled $700! W00t!

The Jeremy Pelzer All Stars (featuring Brendan Gray, KC Novak, Katie Drown, Stephen Doughten et al.) opened the show with a long-form improv set. Then Hashtag Comedy took the stage with short form, improv comedy games. The fun and laughter was interspersed with tears in stories of loved ones who had struggled with Alzheimer's - this disease has touched many of our lives. It was a great show, and Hashtag Comedy was proud to do our small part for our friends and our community! Let's End Alzheimer's!

Last night at Shadowbox Live's Backstage Bistro Hashtag Comedy performed with....Hashtag Comedy! No, seriously, folks....it's been a while since we had a show at the Bistro with just the eight of us - since December 2014, to be exact! We love all of our special guests and all the creative talent we feature from around the city, but it was fun to host a show with just ourselves for a change.

This was our 25th show at the Bistro since 2014, and we were pretty excited about that milestone! We had a great crowd, including a lot of new faces. Thanks for coming out to see us!

NOTE: Please come out next week, June 10th, to our benefit to End Alzheimer's! More info here.
