Lounge-asaurus Rex

Minneapolis, MN

Lounge-asaurus Rex combines musical and improv prowess to create a fully improvised lounge singer experience. Mustached, bejeweled, and dressed to the nines, Rex works the crowd with witty banter, soaring ballads inspired by audience suggestions, and more schtick than you can shake a stick at. Hear Rex roar for the fourth year in a row at OOB!

Tom Reed performs regularly at ComedySportz-Twin Cities, Huge Theater, Brave New Workshop and in long form groups including Ringo, Rampleseed and Lounge-asaurus Rex which have appeared at OOB and the Twin Cities Improv Festival. In addition to improv, Reed recently starred in "The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged) at Camp Cabaret, "Avenue Q" at Mixed Blood Theatre as "Princeton," and created the hit one-man musical parodies "Bite Me Twilight" and "Parry Hotter & the Half Drunk Twins" and "Disney Dethroned: Snowcahontas and the Tangled FrogBeast" at the Minnesota Fringe Festival.

Third Curd

Denver, CO

Third Curd has been playing together for 7 years in Denver, CO. They have been performing in local theaters. The two performers focus on energetic and fun characters. Third Curd gets two suggestions for locations, and they split the stage into the two locations. In each scene the two of them will play from three to how ever many characters needed to tell the story. Mark and Chris switch between each character, and swapping characters is requirement for their set. As they switch characters they also switch between scenes. Third Curd then ties up the set by having the two separate scenes tie together at the end.

Mark Shonsey and Chris Woolf have a consistant playing time together for 9 years straight in different teams and theaters. While performing all over Denver, they also find themselves working full time at Denver's longest running improv show Impulse Theater. With the all of the play time that the two of them have had it has become natural for them to feel out a scene, characters, and a story arch with ease. Third Curd is a two man group that never will stop pushing the envelope of improv, and their own play.

Third Curd has appeared at the Denver Improv Festival, the Colorado Improv Festival, and the are the Remake Rumble Champions at the Impulse Theater.

The US National Improv Team

New York City

The US National Improv Team brings an athletic energy to the field of long-form improvisation. Using an audience suggestion of a recently-learned fact, a single scene becomes the source of relentless exploration and well-supported play.

The US National Improv Team is a group of seven UCB-trained improvisers who have been told that they play with "aggressive faith," which they like, because it makes them sound both cool and sensitive. They thrive on competition, going on winning streaks at the UCB East Indie Cagematch and PIT's TUG-of-War, and feeling like winners at many more non-competitive improv shows around their native New York City.
