WHEN: 8:30pm (doors @ 8pm)
WHERE: Gallery5 (200 W. Marshall St.)
The Richmond Comedy Coalition's all-improvised monthly show series, Richmond Famous, features live and totally unscripted comedy, created on the spot, inspired by the true stories of some of RVA’s most interesting people.
The improvisers will be hearing their guests’ stories for the first time onstage and what unfolds afterwards is as much a mystery to them as it is to you, creating a show so funny you’d swear it was scripted (but you know it’s not).
*** This month, the RCC welcomes Casey Longyear and Marshe Wyche, the owners of Rumors Boutique, to the Gallery5 stage ***
ABOUT RUMORS AND OUR GUESTS
Rumors is Richmond's premiere thrift boutique, providing the south with pre-selected & pre-loved clothing for guys & girls. They buy, sell & trade clothing daily from customers, handpicking each item to ensure they offer a wide & varying selection of high quality clothing at starving artist prices.
The owners, Casey Longyear and Marshe Wyche, met in 2003 and opened Rumors' doors in 2007 without owing anyone a dime, meaning they slept on the store's floor and showered at the YMCA. Rumors opened as an independent boutique offering locally designed products, as well as exclusive international indie lines, but has since been revamped into Richmond's first thrift boutique.
In their first year they had over 400 bands play in the shop, held fundraisers for over 25 nonprofits, and were exhausted, broke and loving their lives.
Today, they are still trading daily with the diversely fashionable community of Richmond, traveling the states in search of lucky finds, spreading as much positive energy as they possibly can and, in mid-June, Rumors will be expanding and moving to a new location at 723 W. Broad Street!
