Laugh Along to “The Black Version” at The Groudlings

For February’s Black History Month, The Groundlings staged an improv show called The Black Version.  The show is the brainchild of Groundlings member Jordan Black (of the cancelled-way-too-soon Comedy Central program Halfway Home).  The idea is to take movie suggestions from the audience, and then do satirical “black versions” of the movies.

The show was such a hit, it was extended, and there will be performances on Monday March 7 and Monday March 14.  Tickets are available at the box office and the Groundlings web site.

In addition to Jordan Black, performers include:

  • Daniele Gaither (Mad TV, Chocolate News)
  • Keegan-Michael Key (Mad TV, Gary Unmarried)
  • Phil LaMarr (Mad TV, The Pee Wee Herman Show)
  • Jordan Peele (Mad TV, Wanderlust)
  • Gary Anthony Williams (Boston Legal, Boondocks)
  • Cedric Yarbrough (Reno 911, Black Dyanamite)

If you have never seen Gary Anthony Williams do improv – he is really one of the very best, especially with improvised songs.
