On the occasion of T.I.M. turning 3, let’s remember way back to the summer of 2011:

Meanwhile, after years of dreaming and months of planning, a plucky group of performers and administrators affiliated with Milwaukee-based ComedySportz kicked off what they hoped would be a monthly improvised musical called T.I.M. (The Improvised Musical).

Three years later, gas costs about the same, the Brewers are barely in first, Congress is still dysfunctional and T.I.M. is stronger than ever.

T.I.M.’s one-hour on-the-spot improvised musicals, inspired by audience suggestions, continues to evolve. Among the cast, only co-founder Jacob Bach and Mary Kelly remain from the first show in July 2011 – although Mary is leaving for Chicago. Patricio Amerena moved to the cast from the original T.I.B., The Improvised Band, which has doubled in size in three years. Steven Baird has continued as T.I.B.’s guitarist since the beginning, and co-founder Mary Baird remains the show’s producer.

After three years, T.I.M. maintains its third-Thursday-of-the-month performance schedule, meaning that its third anniversary show will be at 7 p.m., Thursday, July 17, at ComedySportz, 420 S. 1st St. Tickets still cost only $5 cash at the door.

But for all that hasn’t changed for T.I.M. since 2011, its popularity has. Consider reserving tickets by calling ahead on weekdays at (414) 272-8888.
