During fast-paced Friday-night shows, a troupe of improv comics, ranging from professionals to up-and-coming goofballs, takes the stage to belt hilarious musical numbers and innovatively quip its way out of improvised skits and interactive sketches. The performers' ad-libbed bits brim with comedic gems such as unexpected associations, absurd imagery, and reenactments of Plato's famed cave puppet show. Nestled in a cozy 70-seat theater, the audience feels intimately involved with the action, even sometimes getting to participate in the scenes and ditties. Accompanying the onstage action, Bertrand Laurence's live guitar music enhances the songs' clever lyrics in the same way a plastic skull enriches dramatic monologues. Many of the performers hail from the Everett School, an organization of professional artists who meet across generations and cultures to cooperatively create original performances and mentor young artists.
