Improviser Matt Donnelly leaving NYC for Vegas

If there’s one part of the comedy scene that has not gotten enough due on this site, it has to be improv, which is extra-weird for anyone who really knows me, since I started my professional comedy career in improv in Seattle. Fortunately for New York City, Keith Huang covers the improv scene here quite well and photomographs it, too, at his site, improv is good for you*. Huang reports today in The Apiary that improv star and teacher Matt Donnelly will be heading out for Las Vegas, and gets many of Donnelly’s NYC comrades to weigh in on what Donnelly has meant to the community. If you want to see him off with a bang and a laugh, Donnelly will perform at 11 p.m. tonight at The PIT with his teams Threat and Neutrino, and also Wednesday as part of the entire schedule.
