Crisis: An Improvised Comic Book
About the Show
CRISIS: AN IMPROVISED COMIC BOOK is half improv comedy, half pulp fiction, with all of the strengths of both worlds but none of their weaknesses. With the help of an audience suggestion, they spontaneously create the origin story and exciting adventures of a never-before-seen superhero in the style of reading a graphic novel from cover to cover. This exciting issue features a crossover with the antics of the amusing androids in Metal Boy, who have been chosen to perform one of improv?s SECRET FORMS: sets which incorporate a challenge inspired by comic book tropes.
Ever since that fateful night when Matt Kerstetter, Kevin Tully, and Mark X Guinn witnessed the murder of all of their parents at once in an alley behind an improv comedy theater, they swore together to become more than men. They have honed their improv skills among wolves in the Yukon wilderness where they were kidnapped by a secret organization that conducted terrible experiments on them to augment their "Yes, And" skills beyond the normal human limit. After they escaped, a wizard sent them to the past when they all punched Hitler at the same time before returning them to present-day America. By day they are millionaire playboy-philanthropists, and by night they are the improv team CRISIS! When their powers unite they are able to accomplish what no one of them can do alone, and improvise the first issue of a brand-new superhero comic book.
