Thunderdome | guam, third time was a charm


GUAM, L to R: Frances, Shirley, Mithra, Ariel, Ashley (and that’s Dermy, the Pig)

Last week Tuesday, the third time was a charm. Yes, after our second win, Guam garnered our third win.

“We” are the all women improv troupe, Guam (on Facebook). Our win? We emerged from the weekly San Francisco THUNDERDOME Cage Match (on Facebook), produced by James Roop. Our challengers? The dapper dressers, Fools of Mercury (on Facebook, “… a San Francisco-based improv group consisting of Nathan Emley, Rico Roque, and Andy Schweig).


THUNDERDOME, as described by host Endgames Improv (on Twitter, web), is as follows –

“Two teams enter, ONLY ONE SURVIVES! THUNDERDOME is the weekly cage match style show through Endgames Improv Theater. Every Tuesday at 9 pm two teams enter the THUNDERDOME and improvise for the audience’s laughter and adulation.

The loser gets a lifetime supply of shame, embarrassment, and a disappointed text from their mother. The best part: the audience decides the winner! Come judge some people every Tuesday at 9 pm! $5!”
