Improv Asylum Offers Boston’s Answer To ‘Saturday Night Live’
Now that “Saturday Night Live” is on summer break, Boston’s Improv Asylum is taking its turn in the late-night weekend comedy slot.
The North End based company responsible for The Oscar Winning Boston Movie faux-trailer is launching a half-hour sketch comedy TV show that premiers Saturday at midnight on WCVB Channel 5.
If all goes well, Improv Asylum hopes to take its new “Vanity Project” national. We get a sneak preview.
