A.S.S.S.S.C.A.T. Improv
Premieres, Wednesday Sep 7 at 11/10c

The critically acclaimed and highly successful cutting-edge comedy group, Upright Citizens Brigade, brings its signature, one-hour long form improv comedy show, "A.S.S.S.S.C.A.T.: Improv" to Bravo this fall. The fully improvised one-hour special features an all-star cast of founding members Matt Besser, Amy Poehler, Ian Roberts and Matt Walsh. Special guest performers include SNL's Rachel Dratch, Tina Fey, Horatio Sanz, and late Night with Conan O'Brien's Kevin Dorff and Andy Richter.

The special, like the live show, begins with a suggestion of a single word from the audience. From there, a guest performer improvises a monologue, which plants the seeds for the all-star cast to build a series of interlocking, improvised scenes. The show follows a loose structure where character and story are instantly created, resulting in a surprisingly fresh, mysteriously interconnected and hilarious piece of improv comedy that can never be performed the same way twice.

"A.S.S.S.S.C.A.T.: Improv" (an acronym for Automatic Sprinkler System Shutdown Siamese Connection Alternative Theatre) lives up to its reputation as the best improv show in New York City as the cast fearlessly explores any subject thrown at them by the audience. The troupe generates a side-splitting storyline involving the Philadelphia Bicentennial from Fey's use of the word "squish," a sensual game of tennis arises after Richter spouts out a monologue originating from the word "dunk." In the end, this spontaneous show proves that established comedians are much funnier without a script

They have some really ---BIG--- televisions over at the Fox & the Hound (next to the Gingerman, where the old Waterloo Brewery used to be). I would love to go over there with a group of improvisers and muscle out the sports fans to stake out a TV.

Since it's a sports bar, we could wear improv-team shirts. Which team jersey would you wear?

If we wanted to play nice, we could bring fliers for local Improv shows to pass out, but if we did that, we'd have to wear robes and shave our heads (or wear bald-caps). HA!

Moved all my improv files on my website. New address for the shirts =

I would have changed this in my previous post, but I don't know how to do that (or even if I can do that).

I'm bumping the EARLIEST AIC posts... just for grins.

Also, those links are dead. Not sure where those image files are. I'll try to update them laters.
