It’s a great 2-4-1 performance! Bet on the comedy trifecta, Louisville, Nashville, and you. Louisville’s premier improv company is heading down south to performing with the NIC. Blending together like a perfect mint julep, this refreshing shortform show will be a night to remember.
Based out of Louisville, Kentucky, Damaged Goods has quickly become The River City’s premiere and most sought after improv comedy troupe. In just three short years, they’ve taken their special and unique brand of high energy short form improv games and managed to become a recognizable name in Louisville’s soaring and vibrant arts scene. In 2011, Damaged Goods was chosen as the 3rd place “Best Comedian” as well as the 3rd place “Best Performing Arts Group” as voted on by the people of Louisville in the LEO Readers’ Choice Awards. In April of 2013, Damaged Goods set a new standard for improv in Louisville as they were honorably selected to be a part of the 16th annual Chicago Improv Festival. Damaged Goods currently performs regularly at The Bard's Town Theater in Louisville.
