Folk Lordz: Warriors & Fools

 

Review


Todd Houseman and Ben Gorodetsky are doing something special with improv: they’re sharing their heritage through comedy. In Folk Lordz, the two improv-experts take suggestions from the audience and use them to create a long-form piece that’s an homage to the various storytelling styles that make up their respective cultural backgrounds. It links their art form of choice to those of their ancestors. On Friday night, we saw a Cree-Blackfoot war story and a Jewish fools tale. It was educational, funny, smart, and — something that’s atypical in improv — it tugged, just a little, at the heartstrings. By Kathleen Bell
