If you’re in the mood to de-stress a bit with a few knowing chuckles that will likely grow into gut-wrenching laughter about the foibles of life as portrayed a troupe of improvisational comedians, you won’t want to miss the Mile High Comedy Troupe performing at the Prescott Valley Performing Arts center across from the Harkins Theater.

This location is a new event venue – the official address is 2982 N. Park Avenue, Suite G 1 – and the cast has high hopes for a full house for the two shows scheduled for Sept. 23 and Sept. 24 at 7 p.m. The doors open at 6:30 p.m. Tickets must be purchased at the door. No presale or card sales are available at this time.

For $8, the cost of a fancy coffee or fast-food meal, the cast of this combined improvisational, stand-up and sketch comedy troupe is assured to provide frank fun that can fizzle their audience’ frazzle.

No one show is ever a replicate of another because the audiences are never quite the same, and the topics the audience provides the players is the fuel for the funny performed in spontaneous fashion. Mile High Comedy does advise that the spontaneity of the shows and content are intended for adults only. The skits might prove inappropriate for audiences under age 18.

The show’s producer Cynthia Sobo is described on the troupe’s website by a reviewer from Nickelodeon’s “Parental Discretion” as “one of the funniest, smartest, creative people in the business.”

Another reviewer said Sobo is someone who is not only funny, “but knows funny.”

Mile High operates without a skit, but rather the cast plays off each other comedic skills in a series of games and skits that are fueled by audience suggestions. Some are suggestive, even raunchy, and others are the hilarious truths that are part of everyday life. Facial expressions, body movements and commentary are all key to this group’s humor.

The Mile High Comedy troupe have been frequent guests at various local entertainment venues, including the Elks Theatre & Performing Arts Center in Prescott.

The Prescott Chamber of Commerce described this group of comedians’ performance as a blend of such shows as “Whose Line Is It Anyway,” “Saturday Night Live” and “Comedy Central.”

Mile High Comedy’s website states that their goal is simply to make people laugh. They, too, are always seeking new performers “able to make us become legendary,” the website reads.

“Our goal at Mile High Comedy is to create short, satirical and hilarious comedy,” the website states.
