IMPROV RESIDENT TEAM NIGHT!
Check out our current lineup of Resident Improv Teams! These teams perform Long-Form Improv all inspired by a suggestion from the audience. Think of it as a sitcom made up on the spot.
Catch them before they are gone! These teams rotate every three months!
Cobranauts do fast-paced improv and strike quickly (much like a Cobra) and are totally out there (like an astronaut). The longest running house team at the Westside Comedy Theater and seven-time winners of their improv tournament, the ‘nauts are always excited to take the stage at their homebase and at festivals around the country including SF Sketchfest in San Francisco.
Team: Lish Bliss, Jennifer Cowan, Mary Gutfleisch, Rolland Lopez, Jen Parker, Atul, Singh, Cole Stratton, Jon Thompson
Earlier this year, I had a great time creating HTSTRK for Westside’s Resident Team night.
This new project is still focused on combining clown and improv. But this time around, instead of exploring the idea of rebellion and anarchy, I wanted to subvert beauty and gender. The conceit behind flwls is that I’m a cruel choreographer who wants to bring more grace and poise to improv. So I’ve brought together a group of my students to create beautiful shows. Of course, everything falls apart because they are clowns who really only want the audience to love them.
This is a live direction format like HTSTRK. But I’ve been experimenting with lighting sources (flashlights, electric candles), simple props (colored scarves, blindfolds) as well as epic music tracks played from the booth. The cast is a diverse mix of female-identifying performers who are students of mine. We’ve done some at the Clubhouse to a great response, but we also all play together regularly in various kinds of clown shows, including my other improvised clown formats (like Night Zoo and Live Chad Directs)
Team: Chad Damiani, Nalini Sharma, Brianna Ahlmark, Deidre Lee, Caroline Cummings , Reshma Anna Meister, Ava Lalezarzadeh, Emily Shankman
