The Hamazons will present "Holiday Hoopla," three evenings of comedy improv. Shows are scheduled for 8 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 6, at The Rogue Building, Rogue Community College Redwood Campus, Grants Pass; 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Dec. 7 and 8, The Black Swan Theatre, East Main St. and Pioneer St., Ashland. Based on audience suggestion, the Hamazons offer a different show every night.




"The Warrior Princesses of Comedy" developed The Creed &

comedy that includes no gratuitous sex or violence, and puts no one down, including the performers themselves. Within this circle of clean comedy, everyone is welcomed and everyone laughs hard. As Victor Borge said, "Laughter is the shortest distance between two people."




The Hamazons have performed consistently since 1999, enjoying a longevity supported by a large following of fans. What they do is comedy improvisation (that's spontaneous funny stuff on stage), much in the styling of television's "Whose Line is it Anyway?"




The current Hamazons include Kyndra Laughery, Carolyn Myers, Eve Smyth and Cil Stengel. For this holiday show they will be joined by alumni Deborah Elliott, Sierra Faith and Bobbi Kidder. The Hamazons dress with eccentric abandon, and invite their audience to do the same.




Tickets are $15 and are available at Hearts and Hands, Ashland; Bad Ass Coffee, Medford; and The Kitchen Company, Grants Pass.
