Chicago's Improvised Star Trek Comedy Troupe Celebrate "First Contact"

April 02, 2013|Elliott Serrano, for Redeye

Considering my - um - history with Star Trek folks, you'd think that I wouldn't be so welcome in their universe. Let's face it, the first time I met William Shatner he tried drowning a Jean-Luc Picard Action Figure that he assumed was mine. Newsflash, Captain Kirk! It wasn't!

Anyhoo...

Despite my checkered past with the crew of the Enterprise, the funny folks of "Improvised Star Trek" have invited me to be a part of their show this Friday! I'll be a contestant in "The Away Mission Game" where I will be selecting my favorite captain in a "Dating Game" style game-show! I sure hope whoever I pick is nicer to me than the last guy.

Here are the details on the show and a link where you can but tickets!:

On April 5th, 2063 the human race makes first contact with some pointy-eared extra-terrestrials, setting the stage for an exciting trek through the stars! On April 5th, 2013 you can celebrate the 50th pre-anniversary of this auspicious day with fellow Trek fans and figure out how you’re going to kill time the next half-century.

Join us for a night of comedy, music, and excitement in celebration of Star Trek! With strange, new performances by Improvised Star Trek, The Nerdologues, & Plan 9 Burlesque.

7:30 pm, 3914 N Clark, Chicago IL

Now, if you come to the show I will have some Star Trek-themed prizes on hand to give away! To win, you must be among the first people to see me at the show and say "I beat the Kobiyashi Maru and all I got was this lousy t-shirt."

Easy enough, eh? So come on out to see Improvised Star Trek with me! And don't be shy, say hello and be ready to say the "secret phrase."
