Its today's news broken wide open. 

The show wraps up with the League performing Water Form, the style of long-form improv developed in-house specifically for The League of Pointless Improvisers.

Summer Games

Pointless brings the heat this summer with a lineup of playful improv games!

Each show opens with a guest improv group, followed by the wacky fun of Summer Games, starring the League of Pointless Improvisers. These games will keep our League on their toes as they use your suggestions in such favorites as "Oscar Winning Moment," "Steal-A-Line," "Take That Back" and more.

Brews & Views presents Gerrymandering: An Update

Hosted by the League of Women Voters of Ann Arbor

We will connect with Voters Not Politicians for this session to get an update on the ballot initiative to amend the MI constitution to create an Independent Citizens Redistricting Commission and end gerrymandering in Michigan. For those who aren't familiar with the initiative, we will briefly review its content and background. We will also hear about how Voters Not Politicians is planning to continue their work between now and November. What is the status of the legal challenge to the ballot initiative? How can we as a community support this proposal and make sure that we end gerrymandering in our state? Voters Not Politicians will answer all of these questions and the presentation will be followed by group discussion.

This event is free and open to the public.
