Crisis Hopkins appeared at VIC’s Laughstock Comedy Improv Festival on Saturday, August 30, 2008, at 9pm.

Crisis Hopkins is a San Francisco Bay Area comedy improv troupe that infuses games, scenes, and comedy of the fast and slow variety in an evening of in-the-moment hilarity. Valuing joy above elegance and play above dignity, Crisis Hopkins commits to the moment and finds inspiration in the topics of the day and the experiences of its players. We are named after an infamous 19th century San Francisco vagrant who interrupted the sermons of street preachers with the cry “The Fire and Brimstone preachers are gone, friends; Now Listen to Reason!”

Crisis Hopkins is: Christy Daly, Lily Harvey, Chris Hayes, Sam Shaw, Anthony Veneziale and Jamie Wright. Cassidy Brown is a Swing Player. Julie Potter is a Player Emeritus.

Crisis Hopkins is a resident company of San Francisco’s Climate Theater. Their current show, The Off-Night Spectacular, runs every last Wednesday in 2008.
