Hardly young upstarts, Artificially Intelligent : Improvholics Anonymous or AIIA (pronounced "AI-YA!" w gusto) for short, were last seen at klpac's Open Day this January. And now they're hoping to invade your minds again with their madcap off-the-wall humor tempered with their I-have-no-idea-what's-going-to-come-out-of-my-mouth panic.
Yes, PANIC. Because this is pure improvisation.
NO SCRIPTS. NO REHEARSED LINES. NO HOLDS BARRED.
Just your suggestions and their wits. So go with your thinking caps on! Or off, depending on how evil you are.
They'll be staging a full-fledged show at klpac from 13th-17 July. Full details after the break.
But say you're not familiar with improv comedy or just not sure about this whole improv comedy thing, why not go for a taster session?
AI:IA will be featured for one night at FUSED at The Actor's Studios@ Lot10 next Tuesday the 14th, for only RM10!!
So if you work in town, instead of wrestling with the jam, why not drop by the Actor's Studio Lot 10 and check these guys out?
AI:IA will be showcasing new members, some new games and will be hoping to whet your appetite for more improv comedy in July.
