In addition to plays, such as 'Murder Ballad Murder Mystery,' 'Elephant's Graveyard,' and 'The Difficulty of Crossing a Field,' and dance productions, like 'Big Range Austin Dance Festival' and 'Bodies in Urban Spaces,' he performs vaudeville-style clown with Schave & Reilly, creating 'The Slapstick Comedy Juggling Show,' 'Department of Angels,' and ''Some Other Day.'

Beer Shark Mice Lottery

Austin, TX

Beer Shark Mice is a legendary long form improvisational show originating from Los Angeles and this is your chance to play with them. Any improviser attending the show can put their name in a hat which could be chosen at random to play a 30-minute set with BSM and all their comedy glory.

The suggestion of a location is taken from the audience after which a forty to forty-five minute long show unfolds. The initial location acts as the starting point for an array of scenes where the players tag in spinning scenes in new directions or wildly out of control to sometimes end up full circle where it all began. The quintet is a well respected group of Chicago men that learned the art of Improvising from Improv Olympic, The Second City and Annoyance Theater.

Please note: Joel Murray is traveling to Paris on Monday for the French premiere of his film "God Bless America," and so will NOT be performing with BSM on Monday night in the Lottery.
