Pulp Friction - 1822


In certain circles writer/director Quentin Tarantino is considered a god. People often look to the gods for inspiration, which is exactly what this group of improvisers does when they present "Pulp Friction - Improvised Tarantino!" Drawing from the movies created by the man who brought you such great cinematic achievements as "Reservoir Dogs," "Inglourious Basterds" and "Pulp Fiction," this group of actors push the boundaries of Improvisation to create an experimental narrative, full of excitement and mayhem, that is better than a Royale with Cheese!

"Pulp Friction - Improvised Tarantino" was the brain child of director Tom Booker, owner of The Institution Theater in Austin, TX. Tom wanted to play with time, space, and style similar to the visual stylings of Quentin Tarantino's most popular films.

RuBin - 1620

New York, NY

RuBin (Ruby Marez & Binu Paulose) will improvise, create & play several different characters within a single event. They'll either be lovers or fighters - sometimes both. It will all end awkwardly.

RuBin has collectively performed at various improv festivals, including the "North Carolina Comedy Arts Festival" in 2009, the "Boston Improv Festival", "Montreal Improv Festival", & "NY Musical Improv Festival" in 2010, "Duofest" in Philadelphia, PA in 2011 & 2012, "Philadelphia Improv Festival", "Toronto Improv Festival" & "Exquisite Corpse Festival" in 2011, the "Del Close Marathon", "Baltimore Improv Festival" & the Washington Improv Theater's "Improvapalooza Festival" (headliner) in 2012. In 2013, RuBin was not only asked to perform in this year's "Chicago Improv Festival" but was cited by "Time Out Chicago" as their Critics Pick for groups to see at the festival. In 2012, they were nominated by Improvisation News for an INNY for Best Comedy Duo.
