The Bet­ter Than Ba­con Im­prov Com­edy Show will ben­e­fit ACT in Faith of Greater West Ch­ester.

How about in­tro­duc­ing a lit­tle bit more spon­tane­ity in your life?

En­joy an evening of im­prov com­edy for a great cause on the Satur­day after Thanks­giv­ing. Tick­ets sell out fast for the Bet­ter Than Ba­con Im­prov Com­edy Show ben­e­fit­ting ACT in Faith of Greater West Ch­ester. This year’s show will be Novem­ber 24, at 7:30 p.m. at the Uptown! Knauer Per­form­ing Arts Cen­ter in West Ch­ester, with a spe­cial open­ing act from “Hot Break­fast,” Delaware’s com­edy mu­si­cal duo.

Voted “Best of the Main Line & West­ern Sub­urbs” by Main Line To­day, Bet­ter Than Ba­con Im­prov Com­edy per­forms in com­pletely un­scripted im­pro­vi­sa­tion that is driven by the au­di­ence’s sug­ges­tions and in­ter­ac­tions. Every word and ac­tion is cre­ated on the spot, and every show is a brand new ex­pe­ri­ence!

“Eight years ago, we started out as a bunch of adults who met at im­prov com­edy classes and de­cided to take a gam­ble by cre­at­ing our own im­prov com­edy troupe,” says Bet­ter than Ba­con’s Bob Cur­ran. “We ap­pre­ci­ate the role that our West Ch­ester com­mu­nity has played in sup­port­ing our craft, so it’s a plea­sure to give back with this per­for­mance ben­e­fit­ting ACT in Faith.”

A por­tion of all pro­ceeds from the per­for­mance will ben­e­fit ACT in Faith of Greater West Ch­ester, an in­ter­faith or­ga­ni­za­tion that seeks to em­power un- and un­der-em­ployed West Ch­ester res­i­dents to sta­bi­lize their house­holds and build to­ward sus­tain­abil­ity. Ser­vices in­clude evic­tion and util­ity shut-off pre­ven­tion, em­ploy­ment sup­port ser­vices and a Com­mu­nity

Cup­board, which pro­vides per­sonal care and house­hold items as well as dry food goods and home­made frozen meals.

“If you’re look­ing for some­thing to do on the week­end after Thanks­giv­ing, this is cer­tainly it,” says ACT in Faith Pres­i­dent Denise An­tonelli. “You never know what will hap­pen next at a Bet­ter Than Ba­con show, and of course the Uptown! is a beau­ti­ful place to sit back and watch it all un­fold.”

Tick­ets are $25. To pur­chase, visit up­town­westch­ester.org.
