Liquid Fun presents...Running On Empty: 24 Hour Comedy Marathon to Benefit the Greater Boston Food Bank

It's back! For the seventh year in a row, Liquid Fun is hosting 24 hours of delirious funny, and it's BIGGER THAN EVER! Between 7 PM on Friday, March 23 and 7 PM on Saturday, March 24, the Funners will be joined by more than 16 professional and student comedy groups from around Massachusetts in a sleep-defying comedy feat never before attempted by (sane) humans! All your favorites are back for the 2012 LF marathon: Uncensored Hour! Ammunition Hour! Alumni Hour! Newbie Hour! Skirtprov! More delirious incoherence and whimsy than you can shake a Red Bull at. (PLEASE BRING US RED BULL.) $3 suggested donation for all 24 hours, or $1 suggested donation per hour if you want to avoid untold badgering and scorn. This is a great value since some of these groups usually charge $5-$12 per show! So you get to see all these professional groups, plus a bunch of great college troupes, plus rare opportunities for collaboration all for the low price of $3 suggested donation! PLUS, new this year: PRIZES! $3 donation gets you a punchcard to rack up audience points — the more hours you log at the marathon, the better the loot! (And the more vivid your waking dreams!) Prizes have been kindly donated by the likes of ImprovBoston, the Coolidge Corner Theatre and Star Market. It's a sweet haul. While supplies last, obviously — this is a benefit, y’all. All proceeds benefit the Greater Boston Food Bank! Read on for a complete schedule, and click the link below to read each group's bio!
