2011 has been an amazing, inspirational year for Funny Bones Improv.
I am honored to be involved in this organization. More so, I am humbled by the amazing people who play integral roles in our ability to exist. Our players (in New Orleans and Chicago), our staff and our board of course. Just as equally important, our friends, partners and donors; In improv, success on stage comes from supporting your team and we could not find success in this venture without your support.
But most importantly, we cannot extend enough gratitude to the children we visit. They are so unbelievably strong every day in their personal fights. We thank them for sharing their time, their laughter and their incredible ideas with us. Together we have come up with some hilarious scenes and our lives have been transformed. THANK YOU.
We have performed for over 200 sick children this year, along with 150+ members of their families. Here are just a small sample of some of the brilliant scene ideas that have come out of our 2011 shows.
- “Frozen Barbie Dream Fly Away” Ice Cream – Chicken finger flavored Ice cream that you eat with a Barbie Doll – created by Helga
- Creating a new species of animal – the cow-frog. Sound: Moooo-ribit. Does it have udders or legs? Is it lime green or black and white? The adventure continues!
- Did you know Hannah Montana has a lucky turtle named Terrence, who is made of spaghetti?
- “Bieberology” is a new major at a Florida University – and it’s accepting applications today!
- And so many more!!
We cannot wait to see what we explore in 2012!
We wish everyone a very healthy and happy holiday season filled with laughter. See you in 2012!!
