In the Style of a Heist Movie Like The Vault, The Italian Job, and the Leverage TV Show

In a World…where some people would be willing to dominate the world’s caviar supply by stealing and holding on to the world’s rarest caviar…one plucky group of thieves will commit to pulling off the ultimate heist: stealing it back!

This episode features the improv games Prologue in a Minute, Dating Game, Two-Word Typewriter, and Cutting Room.

About this Episode

In this episode, we pay homage to “Heist” movies. Those glorious (and sometimes convoluted) movies and TV shows where a small group of criminals (who are usually good people or only stealing from bad guys (or both)) have to create complicated plans to pull of daring and difficult - dare we say, “Impossible” heists (or “missions”). We specifically focus on Leverage (the TV show) but also the Mission:Impossible TV show and a number of movies. We also have some truly bad European accents…
