Are you a fan of short form improv comedy like Whose Line is it Anyway? Are you intrigued by the idea of long form improv comedy storytelling? Are you interested in storytelling and the creative process? Do you enjoy funny movie podcasts? Then this is the show for you! Join Avish Parashar (improv comedy performer and teacher and professional speaker) and Mike Worth (improv comedian and music composer of film, tv shows, and video games) build a “movie” on the spot, right before your very eyes - err - I mean “ears.” Here’s how our “improv comedy podcast” works: We start with a base genre and a couple of example movies, shows, or stories. Then the show is broken into segments: First, we brainstorm the tropes and standard elements of that style of show Second, we create a high level outline for this week’s show. Third, we pick the improv games we will play to create this story Finally, we perform the show! All this is done in real time so you can observe the creative process and also enjoy the finish product.
