About the Show

“In a World of...Improvised Movie Homages” is a unique show where we use short-form improv games to create long-form improv stories in the style of famous movies.

So how exactly does that work?

Each episode begins with a genre or example movie as a starting point (i..e “Slasher movie like Friday the 13th”). Then the show is divided into two parts: The discussing/prep part and the performance part.

The show is broken into four segments:

  1. Discussing the Genre Tropes - We spend five minutes talking about the tropes, cliches, commonalities, etc. of this type of movie.
  2. Creating the Outline - Once we have the tropes down, we create the outline for our “movie.” We may stray from it (this is improv comedy after all!) but this is the plan going in.
  3. Picking the improv games - We will play one improv game to tell/perform each “Act” of our movie. In this section we discuss and pick what those games are.
  4. Showtime! - Once we have things all hashed out, we jump in and perform the show! We work through the outline and improv games where each individual game has the silliness, energy, and humor of short form improv, but each game is connected with characters, setting, and overall story.

It is creative, funny, and a ton of fun (to play, and hopefully to listen too as well!)
