A Look Back at 'The Committee' (2010 SF Improv Festival)
The San Francisco Improv Festival presents a program on the pioneering San Francisco improvisational theater company The Committee with Alan Myerson, Jim Cranna, Larry Hankin, Carl Gottlieb, Dan Barrows, and Allaudin Mathieu in conversation with author Kim "Howard" Johnson. Come early for concessions and bonus slide presentation (starting at 6:30pm).

The Committee was a San Francisco-based improvisational theater cabaret established in 1963 by Second City alumni Alan and Jessica Myerson. Initially headquartered in a former bocce ball court in San Francisco's North Beach, The Committee's decade-long run included numerous television appearances, from The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour to The Tonight Show,  the feature-length releases "A Session With The Committee", "Billy Jack", and "Steelyard Blues"  and theater companies  in San Francisco and Los Angeles.

The Committee's long list of alumni includes Howard Hesseman (WKRP in Cincinatti),  Peter Bonerz (The Bob Newhart Show), Julie Payne (Curb Your Enthusiasm) and Rob Reiner (This is Spinal Tap). The Committee's legendary workshops introduced improvisational theater techniques to a generation of new performers and teachers including Robin Williams, Gary Austin (The Groundlings) and Corey Fischer (San Francisco's Traveling Jewish Theater).
