West Palm Beach comedy improv fans, the Villains are coming! Mod 27’s good friends from Miami, the Villain Theater, will be traveling to West Palm Beach on November 18th for the first time to share their love for improv with Palm Beach County. Led by Jeff Quintana and Peter Mir, the Villain Theater was founded in August, 2015 and has quickly become one of Miami’s strongest companies focused on improvisation. The company features Chicago-style long form improvisation, sketch comedy, and improv classes.
Mod 27 Improv Troupes
Joining the Villains on stage will be two Mod 27 troupes. O’Hy-o (pronounced Ohio), the first team, is a duo long form group featuring veterans Tom O’Donnell and Dave Hyland – the company founders.

Swede Fest Palm Beach is back! And for the third year in a row, Mod 27 house team, Cheese and Crackers has the honor of emceeing the event. The Swede Fest features laughably bad, 3 minute remakes of Hollywood hits made by amateur filmmakers throughout Palm Beach County.
I know what your thinkingâ€¦ Whatâ€™s a Swede? Well, in the 2008 comedy â€œBe Kind Rewindâ€ Jack Black and Mos Def remake Hollywood movies with zero budget. Their resulting products, hilarious one-take scenes, were called â€œSwedesâ€ â€“ as in the Swedish version of the movie. â€œBe Kind Rewindâ€ inspired a cult following spawning a national craze of â€œSwedeingâ€ movies by amateurs. Which resulted in our very own Palm Beach County Swede Fest, in 2012, to show case these â€œbad movies made by good peopleâ€. 2016 marks the 5th year for Swede Fest Palm Beach which is sponsored by Palm Beach Film Society, Thalo.com, Brewhouse Gallery and The Alchemy Group. Tickets $12 in advance ($15 at the door) and are available on the Kelsey Theaterâ€™s website.
In addition to appreciating these fine “works of art”, the audience votes on the best/worst film made. So, filmmakers could win Swede bragging rights and prizes. Mod 27 has joined in this fun and donated one of the prizes – a set of our West Palm Beach drop-in improv classes. Perhaps the filmmakers can use these classes to hone their skills for next year?
