Featured review from makkay

Someone is picked from the audience and interviewed about their life. From the answers the person gives, the performers make up improvisations. It can be good or horribly boring depending on the person selected and the skill of the interviewer. This first person choosen was horribly boring. The second person better but the interviewer was not great, so the improvisations were just mediocre. They perform much better in their "Theater Sports" format.
Quotes & Highlights
“Bounce-in-your-seat funny.” –San Francisco Chronicle
Eight-time Best-of-the-Bay winner, including “Best Theater Company” and “Best First Date Spot” in 2006. —The San Francisco Bay Guardian
“San Francisco ’s Best Improv Company. Chicago has Second City. L.A. has the Groundlings and San Francisco has BATS.” –S.F. Weekly
“Two wild and crazy hours doubled over with laughter.” –S.F. Arts Monthly
This show proves that everyone has a story worth telling. An audience volunteer will be interviewed about his/her life. (Don’t worry… you won’t be pulled out of the crowd or put on the spot unless you want to be!) Our actors will improvise scenes inspired by the information revealed. Some of the questions will be easy and others will be more probing. It won’t be 60 Minutes, silly comedy or psychodrama, just theatrical, evocative and fun.
