Government Employees Receive Free Admission to DSI Comedy Theater
As the government shutdown continues, DSI Comedy Theater is offering laughter to government employees throughout the shutdown. Any government employee, furloughed or not, can take advantage of this offer. They just need to show proof of employment. The show schedule can be found online at www.dsicomedy.com. All shows take place at DSI Comedy Theater, 200 N. Greensboro Street, located in the Carr Mill Mall between Elmo's and Southern Rail.
"The government can furlough what it considers non-essential employees but it cannot shutdown laughter," explains Executive Producer Zach Ward. "We may not all be proud of our elected representatives but my performers are proud to offer this opportunity for government employees to laugh this month. The show must go on."
DSI Comedy Theater, an 84-seat non-smoking theater located in Carrboro, North Carolina, boasts a local company of 45 active performers and a national network of almost 100 professional comedians. A dedicated member of its community, the theatre continues to reach out to the greater Triangle region with fundraisers, outreach, and educational opportunities for all ages and abilities. It is the home of the DSI Comedy Training Center, which offers new classes every month in the art of improvisation, stand-up and sketch comedy. Zach Ward, Owner and Executive Producer of DSI, has trained improv talent featured on television (Jeff Richards, Saturday Night Live, MADtv), the big screen (Maddy Curley, Disney's Stick It), and students now featured at IO Chicago, IO West, UCBT-NY and UCBT-LA, Second City, Boom Chicago (in Amsterdam), and ComedySportz.
