Main Street Theater Students to Present THE HUMOR GAME

Nine Main Street Theater students perform in the hilarious spoof, The Humor Games. "It has been a blast working with these energetic and talented teens," says director Jonathan Gonzalez. "They have a wonderful flair for improv. We reference "The Simpsons," Groucho Marx, "Seinfeld," Monty Python, and many more comic archetypes. Of course, it's all made even more absurd and goofy in the context of a fantastic "Hunger Games" parody where the participants have comedy the death. Comics can "die" on stage, or "slay" the audience...but never before like this!"

There are 3 public performances: Friday and Saturday, April 29 and 30, at 7:30pm, and Sunday, May 1 at 3:00pm. Performances will be held in Matchbox 1 at the MATCH, 3400 Main Street, Houston, TX 77002. For tickets, call 713-524-6706 or visit All tickets are $9, and seating is general admission.

About The Humor Games by Dean O'Carroll

When Katskills Wintergreen takes a pie in the face for her little sister Dim, she enters herself into... The Humor Games, a comedy battle to the death! Her fellow competitor Tweeta Mellish ropes her into a romcom, and she must contend with her childhood friend Gable Sevenhouse, a member of the collective resistance against evil President Nobiz L. Shobiz. In this slapstick parody of The Hunger Games, who will have the last laugh?
