Comedy games to keep us sane

Timberlane Regional High School, in Plaistow, is home to an outstanding, hilarious improv troupe called The Milkmen. The school shutdown and stay-at-home order effectively put a premature end to the 13th season of The Milkmen – and all extracurricular activities, clubs and sports, unfortunately.

However, Milkmen advisor and Timberlane teacher Michael Castano has been staying in touch with the Milkies, and this week has instituted the start of a series of improv games to keep the Milkies’ chops sharp, and everyone else sane.

It all starts with today’s game, Evolution Rock, Paper, Scissors. Check out Castano’s instructions and give it a try.

For a sense of how the Milkmen shows look and feel, (and because my kid is a Milkie and the bass player and I can,) here’s the Milkmen house band, Udder Chaos, playing the troupe’s intros for the October show this past year.

It’s typically a sold-out, raucous affair, as can be seen in this recent Milkmen finale:
