Bernie Mac and Cheese
Bernie Mac and Cheese Improv Troupe was founded in 2019. They are made up of all walks of the improv spectrum: some trained at various levels of The Groundlings, Second City, Westside Comedy Training Center and others who have only done the improv jam circuit. More than half also perform standup comedy.
Their diversity of cultures and training have led to much success in the LA Improv Community in a relatively short amount of time. They were a staple at The Pack Theater Deathmatch and were eventually named the winners of the Deathmatch Tournament of Champions. They have also hosted an event at The Comedy Central Stage, been granted residencies at The Pack Theater and The Clubhouse (both prior to pandemic). They were also selected as participants in The Westside Comedy Festival III. They also have performed in many indie shows by request including a reunion, some birthday parties and corporate events.
Their style is very easy to follow for their audience… the get is one word, they do 3 completely different base scenes inspired by that word, followed by a group game or scene to capture a theme then a montage consisting of tags tag runs sweeps & callbacks.
Requiem for a Scene
Our theater company, Requiem for a Scene, produces long form improvisation with a focus on emotion and connection in a form at least once referred to as “a naked Harold”. We typically perform with a group of 6 out of the overall company, often stick to two person scenes and usually remain the same characters. We do not perform the “palette cleanser” style of group scenes nor provide an opener other than taking the suggestion of a meaningful life moment from the audience. We deeply explore the relationships between our characters, striving toward heightened connections that lead to wonderful comedic moments.
The group started in the online workshops held by Chris Alvardo in the early days of the Pandemic in 2020, and now we rehearse regularly in person under Chris’s direction. Our members have taken classes and performed at the Westside Comedy Theater. Requiem for a Scene have performed shows at The Glendale Room, fanaticSalon, ArtBar, and The Clubhouse.
TV Unscripted Presents Dungeons and Dragons
This is a longform improv genre show in the style of a Dungeons & Dragons adventure campaign. We bring two musicians, a pianist and a guitarist to accompany us with live music. We have some gimmicks that have worked well with audiences, including oversize dice and an action wheel that the audience can use to be part of the show. We also have prizes (sometimes 3D printed!) for participants. We have a lot of audience interaction in the show, and our format is to treat the audience as if they’re playing the adventure with us and work in at least one audience member as a character.
