A blue whale can swallow nearly 500,000 calories in one gulp. A Wonder Whale can generate 500,000 laughs in one show.
Wonder Whale’s members create comedy by adopting a single voice at the top of the show and then exploding that voice’s traits throughout the course of their Harold. Like an orca changing its hunting territory to find more prey, Wonder Whale puts its initial comedic premises in new environments with new characters in later scenes.
The end of a Wonder Whale show becomes a feeding frenzy of premise exploration and character interaction. Look up a video of humpback whales going after herring. That’s what it’s like.
