Ladies and Gentlemen!
The Inaugural Improv Battle Royale
Featuring Spontaneous Combustion and Blue Blanket Improv
Never-before-seen extravaganza for the senses! Watch these amazing performers contend for the crown title! These toned competitors have been getting into shape: verbal sparring, status lifting, weaving story lines and dodging the doldrums! Now, ready for the competition of a lifetime, we present to you…
In this corner: Your coastside favorites, Blue Blanket Improv! Yes-and-ing in Half Moon Bay since 2007, this intrepid troupe establishes scenes and endows characters with the best of ‘em. Light on their feet and always ready to accept a challenge in the form of an audience suggestion!
In the opposing corner: Introducing the traveling troupe from the north, Spontaneous Combustion! Bursting onto the scene in 2009 in a ring of fire, these talented performers build scenes with a blaze of passion. Their crackling wit and burning intellect will warm the cockles of your heart. Beware their searing sarcasm!
Referee Eric Fronberg will keep the proceedings fair and funny. Don’t blink, you’re bound to miss something sublime!
The Battle Royale: Mixing and matching players from each troupe, two teams will inspire each other to greater heights. Audience applause and laugher will help the Referee judge which team wins the points for the game. But before the ink is dry on the scorecard, the next round will begin. Our audience is the ultimate winner as the whole really is greater than the sum of its parts, as we strive in competition to crown the winner of the Battle Royale!
Disclaimer: This evening is not about martial arts. We’ll be performing short form improvisational comedy: audience suggestions will fuel short scenes of hilarity. The competitive format really is new, and we hope you will lend your voice and applause to help us ensure its success. Blue Blanket is excited to join forces with Spontaneous Combustion for this show!
