Old Milwaukee

Los Angeles

Old Milwaukee does fast paced, long form improv, which features a wide variety of characters and scenes. A typical show is kicked off with the group interviewing a member of the audience finding out about their hometown and then doing a montage of scenes based on the information provided. All this in the hopes of having it all tie together by the end of the show.

Old Milwaukee is a long form improv group originally from Milwaukee and currently living in Los Angeles. Group members have been seen on The Office, MADtv, Comedy Central's Premium Blend, Workaholics, Parks & Rec, and Reno 911! .

Ballpark Theatre Company

Oklahoma City, OK

Ballpark Theatre Company presents Stageflix. Stageflix is a long-form narrative show that tells a full cinematic story from beginning to end, taking a suggestion for a film genre, satirizing the tropes within. The show is accompanied by a full improvised piano score, and does not limit itself to being comedic or dramatic, but contains elements of both.

Ballpark Theatre Company is comprised primarily of OKC Improv graduates, who studied under Buck and Clint Vrazel, of the nationally recognized duo Twinprov. Director Kyle Gossett has been musical accompanist for Twinprov and Villain: the Musical for six months, and has accompanied Jill Bernard's Drum Machine. The group favors scenes that focus on characters and emotional content over plot and exposition.

ColdTowne

Austin, TX

ColdTowne is an improvisational comedy trio that performs character and relationship driven long form pieces. The made up people who inhabit ColdTowne are unreasonable, and the situations they find themselves in are completely absurd. If ColdTowne were a jazz band, Justin York and Michael Jastroch would hold down the rhythm section on drums and bass respectively, while Arthur Simone explores the outer reaches on saxophone. And like any jazz combo, their group mind borders on dysfunction.

ColdTowne (Michael Jastroch, Arthur Simone, and Justin York) formed in 2004 and founded ColdTowne Theater in 2005. They have appeared at countless festivals and colleges all over the country, are two time B. Iden Payne Winners and three time Best of Austin winners. Their weekly show at ColdTowne sold out for almost four years running, and helped to solidify ColdTowne as one of the city's premier alternative comedy venues.
