BOOKER AND A BUDDY
June 27, 2015 @ 10:00 pm
Storied and renowned Austin improviser, Tom Booker, performs an hour-long improvised romp with a friend of his choosing. Invited guests will include the best performers, improvisers and entertainers from across this fine city as well as special guests visiting from the far reaches of New York, Chicago and LA. The resulting performance will be a funny and breath taking joy ride through the great unknown and beyond!
June’s guest is KENNY MADISON, who was born in Tulsa, Oklahoma, raised in Sand Springs, Oklahoma, and went to school in Norman, Oklahoma, which logically places him in Austin, TX. Much to your surprise, he started improv in Oklahoma in 2008, where he was a player, then a coach, then an artistic director, then a friend. Since moving to Austin, Kenny has done regular shows at the Institution, Hideout, and ColdTowne Theaters, ranging from Junior Cast Member to Show Director. Most of all, Kenny wants you to realize that you need to accept how great you are and know that everything you’re doing is correct.
TOM BOOKER has studied and taught improvisation and sketch at The Second City Training Center, ImprovOlympic, and is a founding member of Chicago’s Annoyance Theatre. Tom has written, directed and acted in several productions, such as “Patty, Patty, BANG! BANG! – The Patty Hearst Musical!” and a stage version of Valley of the Dolls as well as playing Bobby in the Off-Broadway run of “The Real Live Brady Bunch.” Tom has appeared in several television shows, films and nearly a hundred commercials.
