Let’s LAUGH!!

TurkeyZ

Happy Thanksgiving!!  We are excited for this annual tradition to share laughter with you and your family!  Have your meal early, grab a nap and come laugh the night away with Turkey’Z (ok, that was a stretch – it will be the Jester’Z – but some of them really are turkey’s!!).  Join us as we give thanks for laughter, family and friends.   This 90 min show WILL SELL OUT in advance – so get your tickets early!   You supply the topics and we’ll provide the belly-laughs to work off those extra calories! (studies show that 15 min of laughter will burn 10 to 40 calories)

Comedy Zombies Flash Mob

Special Events, Uncategorized | 1 comment

JesterZombie FRONTREGISTER & ORDER YOUR TSHIRT HERE

On Saturday September 20, 2014 from 5-6pm we are looking for FUN and comedic Zombies for a

Zombie walk and dance flash mob at Mesa Riverview!

Here are the details:

  1. Have fun dressing up as a fun/funny zombie.  We DO NOT want it to be too scary!!  (There will be children around, so please be sensitive).  Seriously – it’s a comedy mob!  Have FUN!!  Feel free to combine the Jester theme / hats / costumes, etc with the Zombie genre.   We will have PRIZES for the funniest, cutest and most unique Zombies!!
  2. Arrive at Mesa Riverview at 5:00pm and park behind Chik-fil-a just west of Party City (there’s open lot).   We will meet you there with a “brain” to follow.  This will give you about 30 min to zombie wander SLOWLY through the property and catch the attention of all the true patrons, drivers, etc and peak their curiosity.   They may even follow you or ask for pictures.  Bring your walking shoes!!
  3. Be aware of time and make your way to the courtyard in front of JesterZ Improv theater (suite #114) to be at the courtyard no later than 5:30pm.
  4. When you arrive to that area, there is a round planter in the center of the courtyard – join in the race by walking clockwise with the rest of the group!!  Chase the brain (slowly!!!).  Please don’t really catch it!!  It’s a time waster until everyone arrives.
  5. At about 5:40 there will be a dance number by the kids of Dance Studio C.  Once Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” music starts, please step out of the way for them to have room for their dance.  We also have a special hip hop group that will join us – after they do their number, we want YOU to join in for the finale!!
  6. Please watch THIS VIDEO and to receive specific instruction and make sure you LEARN THE DANCE!!  It’s not much, you are probably familiar with it already.
  7. We will have a practice / run through of the dance on Friday Sept 19 at 5:30 at the courtyard – please be there if you can!!!
  8. After the dancing is done, we want you to show us your BEST/FUNNIEST/CRAZIEST Zombie walk down the Red Carpet!  Get your Z-walk on and bring a friend who can take a picture or video for you!
  9. Don’t forget #JesterZombie on all your photo’s and video’s!!

 

CLICK HERE for Release Form

WE ARE FILMING THIS FOR DVD!!  We need your “release form” so that you can be seen on the DVD!!  Please PRINT and bring with you to the event.  EVERYONE (including guests) must bring it with them!!  Also, no logo’s on shirts.  You and your clothing will be BLURRED out and/or removed from final copy or may be asked to step out of participating altogether.

ALSO:  Please be courteous and respect the local businesses and patron’s.  Be mindful of crossing the street.  If it’s a matter of staying in character or getting hit by a car – we hope you’ll make the SMART choice.
