Improv comes in as many flavors as there are forgotten MySpace passwords. The performers make up situations and details as they go along and what hilarity emerges is a result of training, audience suggestion, and underlying psychological issues. Experience this comedic instability first hand at one of NCC's shows. Their Fringe show at the Shadowbox is all ages and the oddest of the bunch, appealing to those with a taste for the weird and wild. The New Dinner show at the M.I.C.A. offers a chance to combine food and guffawing (softer, mashed foodstuffs are recommended for safety reasons). The Usual Saturday Night show at Yo Mama's is adults only and extremely competitive. Audience participation is not just encouraged but enforced; the crowd is split in two like a sentient watermelon with two mothers, and teams are pitted against one another in troupe-led games throughout the show.
