SUNDAY NIGHT IMPROV – a "unique" (Time Out New York), "wonderful" (Backstage), "hilarious" (Newark Star-Ledger) comedy jam session – continues its run of Sunday performances on the Upper West Side at the Soter-Lee Black Box Theater at 78th Street and Broadway.

The theater is run by Endgames Improv, and their stated goal is to "stage cheap and free improv comedy shows as well as teach longform improvisation that is a blend of the best parts of Chicago, New York and LA's style. We believe that great comedy should be affordable and accessible and should NEVER come with a drink minimum. Ever."
"Neurology has determined that Doug lost 90 percent of the left side of his brain, with no hope for recovery. He looked forward to a poor quality of life in a nursing home, which he has always expressed that he would not want. It was a difficult decision for us, but was done in love and mercy. It was a family decision to let Doug pass on to his next adventure." – statement from the Nervik family, October 2012

"I want you to be prepared for what I'm about to tell you.""I'm sitting down," I said, not recognizing the name "Janet Smith" on my caller ID nor the voice of the man on the phone. "This is Jerry Patterson, Tom." "Jerry Patterson," I said slowly. I paused. "It's been a long time."Twenty-five years, in fact.
