Tahoe’s own improv group, “Spontaneous Combustion,” is set to perform at Brewbakers Coffeehouse/Grill, 871 Emerald Bay Road, from 7 to 9:30 p.m. Nov. 19 as part of a fund-raiser for Unity at the Lake. Proceeds will go to support Unity’s planned spiritual growth center in South Lake Tahoe.

Tickets for the fund-raiser are $15 each and will include dinner, entertainment and a chance to bid on a fabulous list of silent auction items. Reservations are required, but tickets can be held at the door by calling either Kim at (530) 577-1965 or Unity at the Lake (530) 544-2266.

“Spontaneous Combustion,” previously known as “Tahoe Improv Players,” includes Johnny Bolton, Paul Dancer, Frank Riley, Gerry Orton and Jen Tobin. The group is Tahoe’s newest and oldest improvisational comedy troupe. “They’ll make you laugh until you ask them to stop. But you’ll probably have to ask twice. They’re like that,” says Jen Tobin, their “token female.”

Silent auction items so far include an outpouring of services from local church members with professional training; chiropractic, belly dancing, music, spiritual healing, massage, portraiture, hypnotherapy, and cleaning, as well as a one-week stay at a condo in Hawaii (airfare not included). A one-day sailing trip including lunch at the Beacon, as well as a romantic overnight stay for two in a rustic Hope Valley cabin (catered dinner included) are also offered.
