Improv Against Humanity: Yet Another Dumb Expansion

 

Review


Improv Against Humanity happened in a bar in the middle of the day. The troop from Go4Broke played theatre games, some of which involved the audience and some of which didn’t. I enjoyed Clayton’s Steve Urkel impression, and watching an old co-worker pretend to have Tourette’s and two peg-legs. I know Edmonton is white, but I was very unimpressed with the fact that there was only one woman and no diverse performers in the lineup. It’s 2017, and there are many talented female actors of colour in this city. Why aren’t they in the troupe? I saw some theatre games that I’d seen before and some that were new. 'Freeze' is an old favourite, but I’ve never seen the game where volunteers make sound effects to go along with the scene. Nor have I seen a game where someone had to play host to a party and the audience members had to shout suggestions out so the actors had their own roles, afflictions and characters. The show promised to offend—and yes, there were some offensive moments. But, it’s also in Blues on Whyte, so that’s to be expected. Reviewed by Alexis Kienlen.
