(Flipside Memphis is produced through a partnership of Live From Memphis and the Memphis CVB)
About a month ago, I was invited to participate the Wiseguys’ “Storytellers Night” at the Full Moon Club. I had a blast talking about the beauty pageant I entered on a dare in college during the show, which is sort of like a combination of the Moth and “Whose Line?”.
Every so often, the improv troupe will invite Memphians to share true stories on a randomly selected topic. After the story is told, the Wiseguys act it out to the best of their ability. In addition to their “Storytellers” shows, the group has monthly improv shows at the Full Moon Club and Cafe Eclectic.
The group is made up of a handful of whip-smart local comedians who manage to be funny without being too wacky or over the top. Audience participation is encouraged at their shows, and each performance is different.
If you’d like to see them live, check out their full performance schedule.
