OUI BE NEGROES:
J.C. SHAKESPEARE


One of the few African American troupes in the Improv world, the Negroes are a perennial favorite at
Big Stinkin'.  Oui Be Negroes Creative Director Shaun Landry is an "Improv guru", meaning she's been doing this a long damn time.

Her background in
Second City brings a classical structure to the troupe, and they fearlessly dive into all types of improvs. Political commentary, racial foibles, and good old-fashioned Improv are all woven together in a show that's a rollicking stomp on the wild side.

You know Landry has a sense of humor; she's married to Hans, the token honkey!
