Unoprov + Nox! + The Hypothesis
Washington Improv Theater - May 20, 2023
WIT's unpredictable improv comedians turn an audience suggestion into a never-before-seen comedy show.
Three Idiots present: Unoprov!!! Come see this unpredictable and manic show that consists of three separate short scenes (based on suggestions from the audience) where in each scene all of the characters are played by one of our lovable ‘Idiots’. Sometimes referred to as multicasting, the format consists of one performer playing all of the parts while the other performers provide outrageous suggestions to push the scene into the Theater of the Absurd! Cast: Matt Alexander, Kae Tvrdy, Hannah Piper
Nox! uses one event — such as a wedding, a book launch, or a carnival — to inspire a round of hilarious scenes. Each show has a broad swath of scene types, ranging from SNL-style skits to Adult Swim-style absurdity. As one of the longest-running troupes in DC, Nox! is a close-knit team that thrives on high-energy, memorable characters, and playing with both real and imagined worlds.
The Hypothesis combines science and improv to both inform and delight audiences. The Hypothesis format consists of the audience asking the performers a question (ex: How does memory work? Why is the sky blue? What happens in a black hole? Can you terraform Mars?), and players with the knowledge then attempt to answer it. The team consists of scientists and science enthusiasts with diverse science backgrounds — ranging from neuroscience to ecology, from climatology to psychology, and everything in between. Their three- to four-minute science answer both informs the audience and provides a basis for the following premise-based montage, which heightens and builds on itself as it goes.
