First Five w/Professor Merryweather

  • Urban Harvest Brewing Company 1024 South 5th Street Milwaukee, WI, 53204 United States (map)

How much information is actually given out in the first five minutes of a movie? David Ryan Lane wants to find out!

In FIRST FIVE, Dave and his hand-picked squad of performers (James Boland, Brittney Giessel, Erik Koconis, and Audra Handschke) watch ONLY the first five minutes of a movie, then improvise the rest!

Whether it's a big budget Hollywood blockbuster or bargain-bin, direct-to-video trash, it's going to get a LOT funnier once Dave and his team get through with it!

You'll also witness the impossible wonder of PROFESSOR MERRYWEATHER'S TIME-TRAVELING IMPROV SHOW. Witness a spectacle unlike any other as Professor Merryweather himself (Vince Figueroa) uses his time-traveling hot air balloon to assemble an improv group from across time and space (Kristin Althoff, Beth Ann, C.J. Guzan, Robin Lewis, and Tony Mayer)!

It all takes place at Urban Harvest Brewing Company, where they brew hand-crafted ales and lagers in small batches several times a week. This creates a versatile line-up of beers to choose from, as well as adventurous seasonal and specialty brews.

Enjoy a pint or two before, during and after the show!
