A very special edition of our weekly showcase of the top improv teams from Curious Comedy Theater, the greater Portland area, and beyond!!!
Working Title (Amber Nash & Kevin Guillese)
Scratch (Kevin Guillese & Arlen Konopaki)
Scratch is a two person long form improv show featuring Kevin Gillese and Arlen Konopaki that has been performing at festivals across the world since 2005. It's a narrative driven, fast paced show that packs in plenty of characters and physicality into a tight 60 minute package. They started at the Edmonton Fringe festival in 2005 and Vue Magazine said "the best improv show I've ever seen. Five stars." And after their performance at the Edmonton Fringe festival this past year Vue Magazine said "these seasoned veterans have set up camp at the apex of Comedy Mountain, refusing to let go of the top spot at a festival they hold so close to their hearts. Five stars."
Working Title is a two person long form improv show featuring Amber Nash and her adorable sidekick (AKA husband) Kevin Gillese as they create a screenplay based off of audience suggestions in about 60 minutes. Gillese always plays the main character which leaves Nash playing every other character in the story, part of the joy is watching this virtuoso improv comedian bouncing around seamlessly from character to character. This show was originally inspired by the screenwriting manual "Save The Cat" and has toured across Europe and the United States. The most recent touring engagement was at the Amsterdam Improv Festival in 2018.
This show is hot, hot hot! And it's ONLY $5!!!
