Thanks everyone, for a great show at The Front Porch last Saturday. The Experience brought 90 minutes of excellent longform improv based on audience stories and (allegedly) real people audience members have known. Thanks to Emily Morrison at The Front Porch for hosting us, and thanks to Lora and Jen for working the door and concessions! The first part of the show was based on audience experiences from the previous few weeks. Audience members described a trip to Richmond where they first learned about the term ‘lumbersexual,‘ being trapped in Portland during a recent major snowstorm, accidentally scaring a Trump supporter at a Starbucks near Washington, meeting a creepy person on a ski lift, and (allegedly) planning to move to Canada.
Improvisers Nauder Namaky, Larry Goldstein, Brian Weisbrod, Deborah Arenstein, and Finn Mehigan created worlds of log distribution, kombucha delivery to snowbound cars, old timey gods, a surgically reconstructed butt, conversation spotting, a strange documentary about Quebec, and much more.
After a brief intermission to consume snacks, (Thanks for the delicious cookies, Jen!) The Experience returned to pull slips of paper from the hat where audience members had written down some interesting people they knew and experiences with them. The improvisers developed scenes about a wide variety of real-life characters and situations that will remain anonymous to protect the dirt dishers.
