Main on main cutoutMain on Main guests again on Comedy Criminals to talk about those jokes that are funny, but not necessarily to the whole audience.  Do they drive better comedy? Challenge the audience? Should improv performers avoid them?  Can they?  So many questions, maybe you’ll find some answers in this freewheeling conversation with Dave Kempher, Dave Dufour, Ian Crighton, Steve Leininger and Todd Lucas.

Main on Main at the Bristol Opera House

When is a rehearsal really an audition for an improv troupe?  When it’s an open rehearsal.  And it makes sense; newbies get a chance to try their chops in a non-threatening, fun situation, get to know the more experienced performers, and see if they like improv-ing enough to come back.

In this episode, we welcome Ian Crighton, Todd Lucas and Steve Leininger, members of Main on Main Improv Troupe of Syracuse, Indiana, winners of last year’s Comedy Criminals Improv Festival and Competition.  The gang talks about open rehearsals, their value, and finishes off with a rousing game of “Walks Into a Bar.”  Join the fun!

Here’s the first episode of Comedy Criminals: The Podcast, in which the Comedy Criminals talk about the hows and whys of improv comedy, and have a little fun along the way.  This week’s crew is Dave Kempher, Kaitrin Higbee, Kasey Roske and Patrick Roske, along with host and podmaster Dave Dufour.

Improv (improvisational comedy) is great actor’s training, and it’s fun.  For the Comedy Criminals, it’s sometimes a competitive activity, but mostly, it a good way to connect to audiences and stretch one’s acting skills of listening, trusting, reacting and more.
