From Our Editors
Improvolution’s motto is “live funny, die laughing,” and although it’s a slightly edgy sentiment, the troupe promises that its shows are clean enough for kindergarteners, grandparents, and everyone in between. The crew, whose managing director is also a regular cast member, regularly stages evenings of short-form comedy at their new venue or at business and birthday functions. Continual audience interaction and occasional wacky props produce a stream of new inspirations for the performers as they build quick scenes or even stage a rap video at a moment’s notice. The troupe also spearheads workshops in the art, helping aspiring actors flex their adlibbing abilities and audiences break through debilitating suggestion-shouting blocks.
