Tomorrow night at the Magnet is the 5th anniversary of some very special fellows and ladies.  Hello Laser, The Boss, and Junior Varsity, The Magnet’s most veteran house teams, all turn five years old.

Five years is a long time to be an improv team, and you can see that experience borne out every Thursday in the playfulness, patience, trust and skill that these teams exhibit every time they hit the stage.

Come on out tomorrow night and laugh until your silly once again.  Vets Phooka will open up the night at 8pm, followed by Laser, Boss and JV.  At 10pm, there’s a big mix-em up with all the teams as players swap sides for a set or two.  Join everyone at local watering hole Mustang Sally’s after the show for the official after party.

Whew.  We can’t wait.  It’s been a crazy ride.  To celebrate their achievement in longevity, we at the Mblog thought it’d be fun to take a look back at some old photos of these teams so you can see what they were like through the years…

Featherweight & Phooka  hit the stage two years ago this week on the Wednesday night Megawatt stage.  Both teams have delighted audiences and provided us all with a consistently high level of patient and hilarious long form improv comedy every week.  Both of these teams have also taken their acts on the road and performed in multiple cities.

To celebrate their accomplishments we would like you to join us on Saturday August 14th at 10PM where each team will dazzle you with 25-30 minute sets.  254 West 29th Street, NYC.
