Need a Friday-night date idea? Try “Citizen Improv” at Improv Inferno. During this show, an audience member volunteers three impromptu monologues that range from personal anecdotes to thoughts on the news. The inferno comics then improvise a series of scenes based on the monologues. The show happens every Friday at Live at PJ’s, 102 South First St. Tickets are $10.
