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.”
