Here’s what folks had to say about Premature Punchline:

Sean G. – “Premature was the best laugh I had in awhile.”

Emmanuel P. (about the improv)  – “I was sold.  I thought the acting was really good; the actors were funny as hell, and we (as an audience) threw them a curve ball.  It did not matter to them – it was like they rehearsed that part of the show.

Brittany B. – “Each one of the members brought something to the table.  It was balanced; no one was deadweight.  You were all funny.”

Cynthia P. – “It definitely exceeded my expectations.  The show was very entertaining and I loved the chemistry that the actors and actresses have with one another and that they always keep their audience in mind.”

Reymundo B. – “I was laughing so much, I probably lost some calories that night.”

Terell C. – “I would recommend people that want a good laugh to go watch.”

Marcus R. – “My eyes were watery the whole time and I could not stop my laughter.  The next day, my face was sore from smiling the whole time.  My throat was sore from laughing.”
