Current Format: Stand Up Improv
It’s stand-up & improv comedy UNITED: Stand Up Improv! In this format, a comedian will perform a stand-up comedy set, and the cast of improvisors (who have never seen comedian’s material before) will perform scenes inspired by the comedian’s set! It’s two styles of comedy for the price of 1!
What’s the difference between stand up comedy and improv comedy?
Simply put, stand up comedy involves one comedian performing material that has been rehearsed or pre-planned. Improv comedy features a cast of 4-8 comedians who perform scenes with no pre-planning or scripts. They are inspired by audience suggestions or (in this case), a stand-up comedian’s material.
How is Friday Night: After Hours different from Laugh Track City?
Laugh Track City is a short form improv comedy show that features 10 – 12 games that usually last 3 – 5 minutes each. Each game has set rules and involves audience suggestions to inspire them. Friday Night: After Hours is a long form comedy show that is inspired by a rotating format. There is usually less audience participation, but since there are less rules in long form, the scenes and skits in this show are able to be fleshed out more for lasting comedic effect! And hey, it’s a different style of improv!
Laugh Track City is a 90-105 minute show that includes a 10 minute intermission. Friday Night: After Hours is 45-60 minutes with no intermission.
