Improv group brings comic relief

Death’s Door Knockers hopes its soon-to-be-named "Poet Poor-eate" has the antidote to people’s cabin fever. The Sturgeon Bay-based improv group has been hosting its putrid poetry contest since it first started to accept entries in February. Now viewers can vote on their favorite putrid poems by watching videos of Door County celebrities reading the entries on their YouTube channel. One of the lead Knockers, Ross Dippel, hopes the contest brings a smile to people’s faces during an otherwise uncertain time.

The contest’s winner, known as "Poet Poor-eate," will be named on April Fool’s Day. Dippel hopes more people will join the Death’s Door Knockers for fun nights of improv games once the ban on mass gatherings is lifted.
