ShLong Form Improv
It's not the size of your form; it's how hard the audience laughs.
Seoul, Korea’s most hilarious ex-pats perform a delightful mix of SHort and LONG form improv comedy! The audience randomly selects two short form games – favorites from ‘Whose Line is it Anyway?’ – such as New Choice, Foreign Film Dub, Asides, Sound Effects, and more! Each short form will inspire the characters, themes and storylines for the long form. The best of both worlds of improv! Featuring veteran improvisers, plus special guest performers from other shows at the Montreal Fringe Festival!
