Comedy community to present tribute to Thomas George

The Richmond comedy community, including ComedySportz, the Coalition Theater and others, along with producer PJ Dietrich, will present the Thomas George Comedy Fest Sept. 14-15. George, who taught the improv arts to many in the community and had been a popular improv performer for more than two decades, died suddenly Dec. 30, 2012.

The two-day festival is designed to celebrate and remember his life. It will begin at midnight Sept. 14 at ComedySportz Improv Theatre with an improv community jam – unscripted improv scenes and games by the entire Richmond improv community. It will be hosted by members of the ComedySportz Adult Rec League “T831,” who worked with George shortly before his death. The theatre is located in the Gold's Gym Plaza on West Broad Street near Parham Road.

On Sept. 15, the Thomas George Comedy Fest will resume at Byrd Theatre in historic Carytown with an afternoon of entertainment. The all-audiences show will feature a variety of local performers presenting a tribute to George with laughter, music and comedy, all unscripted.

Featured performing troupes are Overtime Improv, Full Contact, iProv (all musical), Paradox Comedy, West End Comedy, the Coalition Theater and ComedySportz Richmond. Street parking is available.

Tickets to the Saturday night jam will only be available at the door, and audiences are asked to pay what they can. Tickets to the Sunday show at the Byrd are available online at, and availability is limited. All proceeds will support the George family, helping to offset expenses incurred surrounding funeral and associated costs. If available, tickets will be sold at the door on the day of the performance.
