About This Show
The Twin Cities improvisation community is booming. Each week, local improvisors Philip Simondet and Matthew McCloud interview an improv team (or other artist) and then improvise with them. Matt digs deep into the improv philosophy and theory behind each guest during the interview portion of the show. In Philip’s Corner, Philip proves that you don’t have to ask good questions to get good answers. Then, the hosts join the guests for some improvisation that could go anywhere and be about anything!

Grant Ertl and Justin Bettencourt (unfortunately Kenneth Pierce couldn’t join us) of 2017 Troika winners, We Have Faces, join us to talk about how three strangers who have never met can quickly develop chemistry and evolve a form to become champions. They also discuss types of improvisers, the importance of support, grounded absurd-ism, how small groups require members to jump more, and the effectiveness of gimmicks.
Also, we observe the rise of acronyms.
