Improv Night at the Physick Estate

The Victorian era wasn't exactly famous for its riotous sense of humor, but the heart of Victorian Cape May is hosting comedy tonight. Emlen Physick Estate, the home of the Mid-Atlantic Center for the Arts & Humanities, holds Improv Night - seriously, folks. The MAC people say that "the only rule to improv is always to say 'yes,'" and they promise that their performers, above, know how to follow that one. The instant-comedy-squad members also have to know how to work a crowd, since the audience is always part of the show on Improv Night.

If You Go: Shtick-time is 8:30 p.m. in the Carriage House Cafe and Tearoom at the Physick Estate, 1048 Washington St., Cape May. Admission is $12; refreshments are available for purchase. For more details, see or call 609-884-5404.
