Ace of Hobos and Big City Improv (SF Improv Festival 2013)
Big City Improv:
Downtown San Francisco's longest-running improv show! Featured on KRON-TV and KCBS Radio as well as a being an SF Bay Guardian "Best of the Bay" Winner.
BCI performs short-form, long-form, and medium-form improvisation based on what the audience wants to see. Big City Improv was originally founded as The Oakland Playhouse in 2000 by Justin Neal and Jayne Entwistle (. The troupe grew and performed in various venues, including with Producer Fred Anderson's "Comedy on The Square" at The Shelton Theater. The Shelton shows were such a success that the troupe began performing in San Francisco each week. The troupe still performs at the Shelton every Friday night doing short, medium, and long-form improvisation based on audience participation.
Ace of Hobos:
Kicked off the train with not a can of beans to their name, fifteen young comedians worked vigorously throughout night and day to raise money for a chance at fame. They played game after game after game, from sunrise to sunset, studying to obtain the holy grail of timing. Months later, $10 richer and 2 inches closer to that holy grail, these actors are happy to perform a series of short-form improv games for your entertainment.
