Heat Sweats is a hilarious high-energy improv comedy team composed entirely of improvisers from Houston.
(Elena Martinez, Anthony Householder and Ethan Smith) HELL YEAH is a celebration of the weird, wicked and wonderful.
(John Boyle, Mike Christensen and Ryan Miller)
Plush Squad is a gritty crime drama where a special division of the LAPD made up of stuffed animals investigates celebrity murders. The audience gives us the celebrity and the clues, but it is up to our crack team of stuffed animals and humans to solve the case. Think Law and Order combined with pop culture and ridiculous stuffed animals.
(Tamara Nixon and Nathan Price)
Price/Nixon is comprised of Nathan Price and Tamara Nixon, who met one weekend while taking an improv class at St. Joseph Catholic Church! They felt the comedy spark and the knew they had to start improving together! That was the Saturday morning that Price/Nixon was born! They’ve been performing ever since! You may have seen them at local charity fundraisers, nursing homes and other free events around Western Washington!
(Dartanion London and Graham Downing)
Art is Truth. Truth is Pain. Pain is Funny. If there’s one criticism most people have of performance art, it’s that it’s not pretentious enough. Hanz and Hiemen are here to solve that problem. These two fake foreign artists make more artistic art in a minute than most artists make in a lifetime.
(Carter Atkin and Denny Atkin)
The Next Generation Gap, 14-year-old Carter and his dad Denny take on everything from Snapchat to dating to music. The audience suggests a topic where a 21st century kid might have a different take from his 20th Century dad and they riff on their takes it for a couple of minutes, and then do a variety of scenes based off the topic. When it comes to a teenager and his dad agreeing about anything–whether it’s smartphones, dating, music, or curfews–as you’d imagine there’s never any shortage of material.
This show may contain mature themes and language, but everything will be in good fun. That being said, we won’t turn anyone away based on their age.
