Needing little more than a stage, a set of chairs, and an enthusiastic crowd, River City Improv’s charismatic cast MacGyvers together side-splitting skits, games, and songs using suggestions plucked from the audience. As comedic ambassadors of Calvin College, the team of off-the-cuff performers mines for laughter without resorting to going blue, like a sailor holding his breath until he sees mermaid. Because shows are fueled by audience participation, each one creates a brand-new, unexpected experience every time. River City Improv also occasionally performs scripted material, such as hilariously choreographed dance numbers, in between segments for an even more diverse show.
