It’s Thursday and you’re in the dead of winter and want something other than the everyday vino or pivo to pick you up at the end of the day. Instead of going back into your apartment after work to sit in front of another screen disguised as Netflix, how about going out for some laughs and surround yourself with some fellow expats?
As a weekly-goer to comedy shows back in the US, I didn’t plan to stop my binge in Prague. After some quick googling, I came across Prague’s Blood Love and Rhetoric Improv Comedy Show. What is it? It’ll be the highlight of your week where you witness an ingenious group of expats and Czechs put on a completely improvised show. I’ve seen many different groups in Prague but this one strikes you in all the right spots and is by far my favorite. And yes – it’s in English. No show has been the same and it’s almost guaranteed that you’ll crack a smile or ten or even a few tears.
This group started in 2012 and is still going strong. Their shows can be interactive, so be sure to sit in the back corners if you don’t want to be called on (warning). Otherwise, sit anywhere and enjoy the ride. Their shows are inside a room that’s connected to a bar, so no worries about the lack of your daily pivo or vino.
Thinking of them checking them out? Good choice. Here’s all the info you need:
