Rarely do the improv and standup worlds interact in such a unique, exciting way as when they collide at Listin Up, a new, high-concept show at the Upstairs Gallery. Standups improvise sets based off of set lists made up of audience suggestions, and then improvisers draw inspiration from ACTUAL set lists used by the standups during more traditional performances.
The whole thing might sound confusing on paper, so Dan Friesen (The Nicest Guys In Town) and Daniel Shar (Phat Beethoven), the show's two producers, sent over this quick audio guide, complete with examples of how the night might go!
Listin Up is tomorrow night (Wednesday, May 29th) at 8pm. The show is totally free but donations are accepted!
