Now Thats Some Good Quality Improv2O

Last night, I managed to convince my parents to let me have the car and drive downtown.

The reason for my sudden interest to drive downtown was to allow me to attend an Improv show by my buddies Without Annette. Their set was about an hour long and they did a long-form game they call Uno. They start off with an ask for, which is then followed by a spoken monologue by one of the perfomers. Then, several small skits are done whose themes are inspired by the monologue. It was hilarious and I quite enjoyed it. My friend Nadine came as well and at some points almost fell out of her seat laughing. They did two 30 minute sets.

The first one revolved around Gil's monologue about music, spawning skits about a band's direction of music, lost homework, harry potter audio tape recordings and an allmusic.com interview.

The second half revolved around Brian's monologue about stairs, spawning skits of a mother on a date with her baby sitter, two brothers taking advantage of an empty apartment, working out at the gym and a spiral staircase to heaven.

The show was at Theatre St. Catherines and only 6 bucks! As far as I know, they'll be doing it every saturday night at 11pm. I highly recommend you check it out! (Yes, I'm talking to YOU!)
