We had a great time last night at IMPRO (vs) TANDUP at NerdMelt LA. For the uninitiated, the show pits an single improv team against a trio of stand-ups with the audience deciding who they liked better.
After our show (no video, sorry), stand-ups Andrew Santino, Melissa Villasenor, and Andy Peters took to the stage for back-to-back sets. Despite repeatedly calling us “improvers,” all three comics were polished and hilarious. You should definitely check them out at your favorite comedy venue whenever they’re there.
After the stand-up sets, it was time to turn the tables. The improvisers had to do three minutes of stand-up and the stand-ups had to do three minutes of improv. We elected our own Mike Coen to represent us. Mike killed it – taking a suggestion from the audience and riffing on his age with references to Faces of Death, White Rain, and Dan Haggerty (from our most recent show) in the charming, self-deprecating way that only Mike can.
Then the stand-ups took to the stage and improvised a few scenes that included some good-natured ribbing at improvisers in general (it’s true, we do say “yes and” a lot).
The crowd was small, but very enthusiastic, and after the votes were counted, we actually tied with the stand-ups – which we immediately called bullshit on. We teamed up with the stand-ups and threatened to take on the audience and our hosts. Luckily, no blows were thrown.
Thanks to our hosts Rajan Dharni and Christian Spicer for inviting us to play. It’s always fun to perform in new venues and for new audiences and IMPRO (vs) TANDUP was no exeception. Be sure to check out their next show on April 11th at UCB.
Seamus McCarthy joins us again for this week’s show – inspired by the suggestion “apple.” If you don’t anything about Dan Haggerty, you will after this show. Check it out:
Okay, so Dave didn’t actually find a human skull in the LA River, but the Friends of the LA River society he talks to on this episode of Brain Food Daily once did. Big deal, I say. Call me if they ever find my dignity. I dumped it in the river 10 years ago after a night of whiskey and wandering. Oh, to live the hobo life again….
