Hooray for Hollywood. Movie-style improv is a common form, but it's not often that you'll see only two performers — in this case Neil Casey and Anthony Atamanuik — acting out an entire Hollywood blockbuster. Or small independent comedy. Or black-and-white Hitchcockian thriller.
UCB, hey you know me. The former roommates that make up this duo are veterans of the Upright Citizens Brigade New York theater. Their friendship kicked off in a movie-style improv class; one thing led to another and they ended up with a weekly slot at UCB. They also performed at this year's Charleston Comedy Festival and were so funny that Theatre 99 invited them back for Piccolo Fringe.
Name that tune. The action is kicked off by a song lyric suggestion, so prospective audience members should have one at the ready. The genre options are limitless for the pair, but they like to stay away from lampooning comedy. Apparently funny plus funny equals not so funny.
