Meet the GoldenPalace.com Improv Group!
GoldenPalace.com has named adults and babies and even monkeys, flowers and cows, but never a whole team! A NYC Improv Group has just sold the right to name their group on eBay. With a winning bid of $1,385.00, the online casino will now lend their name to the hitherto unnamed comedy troupe. Here?s how they put it: ?Anyone who's ever formed a garage band, started a company, or even owned a pet knows coming up with a name can be a stressful endeavor. But when eight people have to agree on that name it can be a nightmare. That's why we, an as of yet unnamed comedy troupe, have decided to auction off that decision. Also, we're just a bunch of starving comedians who provide joy and laughter to the world without pay. Proceeds from this auction will be used to cover rehearsal expenses and promotional materials.?
This improv group consists of Jarret Berenstein, Beth Cartier, Nick Cook, Alex Farlow, Dave Furfero, Alan Lidogoster, Peter McNerney, and Shawn Wickens, and was formed as part of an ongoing resident ensemble workshop at New York's Magnet Theater. Performers submit to an intensive 8-week audition process where director, Armando Diaz, identifies strong improvisers who work well with each other. Those asked to continue will perform regularly at the theater. And the winning name will be revealed at our first performance on Saturday, July 22 at 9 PM.
GoldenPalace.com has named several humans so far, but this is the first case where an entire group will be named after the online casino. And this might not be the last either; they have put their name on a new species of monkey and flower too. So far there have been human babies and an adult woman that have given their naming rights to the Online Casino. Who knows who or what will be next?

This is so cool. I think I speak for the group when I say, \"Somebody pinch us.\" Check out the ebay auction for the right to pinch us starting tomorrow.

Thanks GoldenPalace.com! As you can see in the photos, we did what any other bunch of kids would do when handed $1,385... we splurged on ice cream! Very FANCY ice cream. You can guess how fancy by the looks on our faces when we got the bill. But hey, this is New York City we shoulda known better. Thanks for the exciting finish to our auction. I can\'t wait for tomorrow night\'s exciting debut when we drop (y)our new name on the public. If you\'re in NYC, check us out at the Magnet Theater in Chelsea, 9pm!

There is a great Chinese seafood dim sum place by my house, that is coincidentally named Golden Palace as well. I hope they are not litigious and chop sue-y you guys. ;-) Hey, where do you guys think Alan got his sense of humor from?

While it\'s hard to take seriously an improv group that quite literally sold out, it\'s also difficult not to respect the bounty you took in. I can\'t speak to your collective comedic genius, but clearly, you are all pillars of capitalism. Bravo (and I mean that in only a partially sarcastic way).

When soliciting suggestions, given the new name, it\'s a miracle no one suggested \"golden shower.\" Great show, y\'all!

I\'ve noticed a bunch of the other auctions GoldenPalace won went to benefit cancer charities and stuff, while this one only benefits the improv group. i thought that was really selfish until i remembered laughter is supposed to be the best medicine. Good luck kicking cancer\'s ass, Ha rollers!
