Laugh 'til You Die

The comedians performing in The Duel: An Improv Cagematch may not be fighting to the death, but they are fighting to stay alive into the next round of this improvisational showdown, which pits two comedy teams against each other every Saturday night at the Voodoo Comedy Playhouse.

“Each team is given exactly twenty minutes on stage. They can do whatever type of improv show they want — no rules, no restrictions,” says host James Clark, of the Governor Jack comedy troupe.

Tonight, local duo Third Curd goes up against last summer’s champs, the Transient Playboys; Governor Jack opens the show with a pregame set. Several solo acts will entertain the crowd once the duel is over and the audience votes are counted; the winner moves on to the next Saturday-night round.

The Duel begins tonight at 10 p.m. at Voodoo Comedy Playhouse, 1260 22nd Street; tickets are $5 at the door. For more information, visit or call 303-578-0079.
