3033

Post by TexasImprovMassacre »

I uploaded this show 3033 show. Its one of the sweetest improv shows I've ever seen. I don't know how long i'll leave it up, but its here in 3 parts if it interests anyone.

part one
part two
part three

I would call what they do a harold. Every time we see them their shows seem to find their own form. Some nights it works better than other nights, but this night in particular was extremely satisfying for me to watch. I appreciate the simplicity of it...please, enjoy.

Aw yeah. Every one of their shows is so different and the form the show takes each week is completely a result of the suggestion they get. One huge reason I love to watch them. This show was super sweet and the energy in the room was insane.

Thanks Cody. I miss seeing these guys -- most of them were on People of Earth back in the day, plus Rush who had left Chicago a bit before I did. Glad to see he's back and they're all playing together again.

Wow, dude. First of all, York would freak out if he saw all the perfect memorization/recall in this show. Second, What's amazing to me is that the last two thirds of the show is almost all just the game of the sushi fighting. But that's the best part. It's so repetative and so satisfying. Normally when those types of big events are set up they end up falling short of expectaions. I can't believe how well they made it work. And the whole show was so fast.

This show is vindicating to me. It's more the style I identify with. You don't have to play all "slow comedy" to achieve amazing results. Awesome! Thanks for uploading that, Cody.

Personal lessons: Pay attention. Don't be afraid. Don't judge. Have fun.

I don't use the word "rad" often, but that show was pretty sweet.

One thing that was great was how the sound was a little off, so the Japanese stuff really looked dubbed.

Delightful. I was impressed with how long they sustained the frenzy of playing/fucking with each other in that way that shows they're all having a blast and connecting... reminds me a lot of some moments of the Dasariski OOB show.

It blew my mind a little to see that. Because, yeah, you would normally think that doing a whatever off scene (sushi off, dance off, etc) couldn't go on for as long as they sustained it and still stay as entertaining as it was. ha, but it all looks so simple. They simply decided to make it the show, and made it work beautifully. I really appreciated Alex editing the first time that Rush stabs Andy as ricky carmichael in competition, and leaves something to come back to. Ha, I appreciate how Danny clearly knows what they want from him but he won't give it to them (in a fun way).

I know that they were trying, but they make it look so easy. I wish I had been around during people of earth.

It was fun -- I think it was around Christmas because I remember the christmas tree to the right of the stage got trashed during that show and the theater wasnt full. Erika and I were watching from the end of the bar, if memory serves, with Carlson. I missed the one were Danny got naked though.

I know I've mentioned this a lot, but I saw a 3033 show once where the suggestion was "moving day" and EVERYTHING wound up onstage: most of the chairs and tables, (there were only about seven people watching), the popcorn machine and chip rack from behind the bar, the ticket-taker's podium from the foyer, and I think maybe some cleaning supplies from the back bathroom hall. The show went meta and lost some momentum when they integrated the bartender, but I was glad I got to see it anyway.

This was what I loved about watching POE -- often times the suggestion became the form for the show, at least for the ones I remember. Erika just reminded me of the one where they got the suggestion of Communism. After a few scenes, Ryan came out onto the stage and said to the other guys that this show was unfair since he hadn't gotten to do much in it yet, he should get to do a scene now ...and so on.

In my mind, that troupe is Golden Eagle.
