As well as our two improv shows this weekend, you can also catch our friends Geekenders performing two Nerdlesque shows on Friday night: A Nude Hope and Full Frontal Nerdity! The troupe combines burlesque, geekery, drag, queerlesque, dance, and theatre into their productions, and is always a fun night out!

There is also a live performance of The Dating Game, a Sketch Battle, and a Star Wars Fan Film screening!
