Improv Showdown: Unexpected Productions’ Theatresports
March 9, 2018 @ 10:30 pm - 11:30 pm$4.75
There is a buzz of excitement in the air when you pass the Market Theater’s famous Gum Wall and enter a world of comedy. People are lined up at the concession stand and the smell of fresh buttered popcorn fills the air. Over at the bar they are serving up icy cold drinks and everyone is getting primed to laugh. As you enter the theater, you feel the beat from the music and then it’s on. BAM! This is Theatresports. Seattle’s longest-running show with some of the best improv the Northwest has to offer. At Theatresports, teams of improvisational actors use their quick wits to create scenes on the spot, based entirely on audience suggestions. A panel of judges — sometimes including guest celebrities — then weighs in on which team is the funniest. Be prepared with clever suggestions to throw out, because the two most valuable audience ideas win prizes. The Seattle Times theater critic Misha Berson called Theatresports “the most polished improv troupe in the city.”
