Q&A: Character Bash Duo Show with Elena Skopetos & Ari Miller
What's more fun than your average Character Bash? Why, the Character Bash: Duo Show, of course! Double the comedians, double the characters, double the fun! Elena Skopetos and Ari Miller talk shop with us below. Reserve tickets for the show, Friday, February 16 at 7:00!
What's special about improvising from true stories?
The audience gets to know the people who are creating the show they're watching. I think it's more intimate. There's less pressure to create a perfect comedy product when you can step out of a scene at any given moment and talk directly to the audience to let them know what you think about what's going on.
What happens in Character Bash? Is the Duo Show any different?
Character Bash is a showcase of some of the best writers and performers in NYC doing solo character monologues for the first time FOR YOU! But backstage the magic really happens as the show starts and the cast gathers to compare crock pot recipes. MmmMMmm baby, daddy loves crock pot. Each month we have a theme and this month we're doing something pretty special: we're performing a DUO SHOW! We've asked some amazing comedians to ask ANOTHER amazing comedian to perform with them. Let's do that math real quick: one cast of amazing comedians + the cast of amazing comedians they've asked to join = DOUBLE the crock pot recipes! HELL YEAH!
What does performing as a character duo allow you to do that performing alone doesn’t?
How do you go about creating a character that is unique and memorable?
If you could form a duo with any comedian/character out there, who would it be?
Elena - What's the stupidest thing about Ari?
