It’s been TOO LONG!
But your FAVORITE Lincoln, Nebraska improv troupe is BACK, LIVE, and IN-PERSON!
We’re doing another fundraiser to support cancer patients, and the quest for a cure — raising money for the American Cancer Society through Relay for Life.
The show is on Saturday, June 18, 2022, at 7 PM.
It’s at Church of the Holy Trinity, 6001 A St, Lincoln, NE 68510. The show is in the Parish Hall — enter on the East side of the building.
There’s a suggested donation of $10 per person.
All proceeds benefit Relay for Life. This is our fourth annual fundraiser in support of Relay for Life, because of the personal impact the American Cancer Society has had on the Occasionally Hilarious family.
We’d love if you could also RSVP via Facebook and share with friends!

Due to all everything going on, this class has been cancelled. Look for another class coming up in July, 2020
Do you want to be funnier? Have more fun? Be more spontaneous? Be more open in communication? Or maybe even get over your fears of getting up and talking in front of a room full of people?
Do you want to learn a new skill that can help you in every area of your life where you communicate with other human beings (and perhaps the occasional non-human)?
Or, do you have secret (or not so secret) aspirations of joining us as a future member of Occasionally Hilarious?
These and all your wildest dreams can come true… In Improv 101!
Lincoln, Nebraska’s BEST improv comedy and performance class is ALSO where Occasionally Hilarious came together.
You’ll find a warm, welcoming environment where you get to learn and practice improv games, acting, and comedy with a group of peers who are going through it with you.
Improv 101 is once again being offered as a continuing education course from Southeast Community College, starting April 6, 2020.
Our fearless founder, Tim Mittan-Thompson teaches the class. In it, you’ll learn the fundamentals of improv. Plus, you’ll have ample opportunity to practice and play in a safe and welcoming environment.
And good news if you’re afraid of performing — you don’t have to! Once you’ve completed Improv 101, you’ll be ready — if you choose — to go on to the next level, and potential performance opportunities.
Here are the formal details:
Improv is spontaneous, entertaining and fun. It is the ability to create a scene (with at least one partner), spontaneously, in the moment, based on a suggestion. Join us and discover the basic rules of Improvisation; Agreement (Yes, and), Adding New and Useful Information, and Commitment to the Scene.
Improv is unique in that once you see a scene there will never be another exactly like it. Improv is different every time.
Your seasoned improvisational instructor, Tim Mittan, brings professional experience to the classroom so don’t miss this great opportunity!
April 6 – May 18, 2020, Mondays from 6:30-8:30 p.m.
