TFN - Online Improv Show - LA
T.F.N. presents The Online Improv Show. The only live skype improv show in the country hooking up two casts in two cities via the Internet. Audiences in San Francisco and Los Angeles come together to suggest, witness and been seen with fellow Californians 400 miles away. The Online Intenet show is your good old fashion short form improv mixed with some online connection and tech magic. Hard to imagine. Must be seen.

"Quirky" , "Really funny" with "Sparks of brilliance" and "An intriguing idea with loads of potential." - LA Weekly

âTILTED FRAME stretches the boundaries of traditional improvisationâ¦
They drop the facile and forced wackiness of comedy club improv for a far more daring and difficult form." -  SF Guardian

âThe talented cast takes suggestions from the audience and riffs, improv style, but with a technological twist. With video and computer screens, they maneuver in and out of the stage (you have to see it live to get the full effect). There are a few glitches here and there (and kudos for being able to coordinate dialogue while manipulating media), but the actors use each mistake to their advantage, joyfully pointing them out, in fact, and gaining our respect. It is obvious they are all having the time of their lives.â -Kate West Reviews

Tilted Frame Network (TFN), the only live improv show in the country which hooks up two casts in two cities via the Internet returns to Los Angeles and San Francisco. TFN entreats audiences in both cities to participate in shaping the Network's new "season" (short-form improv games based on TV, Film and Internet). In the first half of the show, audience members are treated as producers and writers and asked for suggestions to shape the shows they'll see that night. Once everyone is accustomed to Tilted Frame's signature techno improv format, Tilted Frame Network takes the show to the next level with long form improv and more audience involvement on and off stage as both cities Jam online.

Started during the dot com revolution, Tilted Frame has been pushing the envelope of multi-media production for more than seven years. Opening with Taste Like Random in the summer of 2002, Tilted Frame used video and the Internet in a way no other company had before. Now, with troupes in Los Angeles and San Francisco, Tilted Frame has further experimented with and expanded the format of the show to premiere the first-ever, recurring, cross-state performance in theater.

Combined Artform has been producing new and classic works in the performance scene for over ten years. Created by Producing Artistic Director Matthew Quinn and Bertha Rodriguez in 1998, they were joined by Steve Kahn in 1999, and have collaborated with actors, singers, filmmakers, sketch comedy groups, musicians, improvisers, and fine artists in hundreds of shows, including Santaland Diaries, Eavesdropper (SF), PAPA, Tilted Frame â" SF & LA, the SF Solo Festival, PianoFight on Shortlived and FORKING (LA) and in LA with Impro Theatre and Improvatorium. They built Off-Market Theaters in 2005 and took over Theatre Asylum in Los Angeles in 2007. They continue to develop the connection between SF and LA as well different arts and artists to be a part of the evolution of performance and production.  www.combinedartform.com
