Just when you thought Drew Carey and his ilk had killed off the art of bullshitting their way through a decent joke, local improv troupe THEY bring the practice back to life. For the first time in Fort Lauderdale, THEY will spend 90 minutes cracking unrehearsed jokes based on audience suggestions alone; so yell loudly, and yell often. This group of actors gets together to perform its spur-of-the-moment shenanigans this Saturday night at the Fort Lauderdale Children's Theatre (640 N. Andrews Ave., Fort Lauderdale) for more than just the giggles. Despite the venue, this isn't some cutesy kids program. Tonight's show is a benefit for the FLCT; proceeds will be used to fund drama programs for kids. The show starts at 8 p.m. Tickets cost $7.

About THEY improv

For now there is no corporate structure and no financial relationship, with their first several performances to be done for charities and the money never even being seen by the troupe. Marketing funds and efforts will either be donated by the members or provided by the charities themselves.
