This tour will span the entire month of July and will be exclusive to the state of Florida. The title, “Laughter Is The Best Medicine!” is fitting, seeing as the tour will be raising funds for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, National Association for Children of Addiction (NACoA), and Susan G. Komen. All events have been organized by Florida-based non-profit wellness clinic, Next Step® Institute of Integrative Medicine; “At Next Step, many of our patients live with these diagnoses, so we hold these charities close to our hearts… We know first-hand the impact the charities have on people’s lives,” comments Katherine Ryan, assistant tour coordinator and Next Step® employee, “We also know how much joy the Impronauts bring their audience and can’t wait to share their talent with Florida!” The energy from the Cambridge Impronauts is almost palpable, even from overseas.
Jack Lawrence, Impronauts co-director, explains,
"The tour represents the biggest challenge the Impronauts have undertaken - we've performed in Cambridge, Edinburgh and London... this time we're going international and it’s sure to be the experience of a lifetime, made all the sweeter by the good causes we're doing it for.”
The improvisational comedy troupe is extensively known in the UK for their short-form, ‘quickfire’ shows (similar to Whose Line Is It Anyway?) and long-form, movie-esque improvised stories. As the name suggests, “improv” designates that every show be made up on the spot, based on audience suggestions. The Impronauts routinely receive five star reviews and sell out their local shows.
Although the comedy troupe is made up of Cambridge students primarily from Britain, the troupe boasts members with an international range of backgrounds. One of the performers on tour is Florida’s very own Rachel-Marie Weiss, who found her way to Cambridge several years ago to pursue psychology. She is one of the twelve Impronauts traveling to Florida this July.
