The Annoyance Theatre's Trigger Happy is a newly styled long-form improv show that consists of a series of unrelated scenes inspired by a single suggestion from the audience. How does that differ from any other improv? In this production staged at the Chicago improv haven, the cast shares an invisible language that will trigger certain events, as if by magic. The goal is to create a show that, although completely improvised and funny, still provides the look and feel of a staged production. In artistic director Mick Napier's own words: "In one moment, everyone in the cast may exclaim something at the same time for what appears to be no reason, or most of the players might suddenly exit simultaneously, leaving only two people on stage to do a series of five different five-second scenes."
