Collective Alibi

Improv – Austin, TX

FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites

Collective Alibi performs the improv comedy format The Evente, a show that examines a group of disparate people thrown together for a particular event and then jumps back in time to see what molded these people into what they are today. The show concludes by returning to the original event where we see how everything comes to a head. Think ABC's LOST, but a comedy.

Formed as the most recent ColdTowne Conservancy Student Troupe, Collective Alibi has been performing long form, Chicago style improv comedy around Austin for the past six months with no signs of letting up any time soon. The troupe explores diverse collections of characters thrown together at common event and finds out where they came from and what makes them unique.

BRAIN TRUST

Improv – Austin, TX

FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites

In the tradition of ZZ Top, Motorhead, Cream, Green Day and the Police, three of the most respected Improvisers in Austin combine to form a new Power Rock trio. Power trios have at times been characterized as loud and bombastic, often embarking on long improvised jams that would highlight the virtuosity of the individual musicians. BRAIN TRUST combines the virtuoso performances of: Michael Joplin (The Available Cupholders), Troy Miller (The Confidence Men), Dave Buckman (The The Frank Mills).

A BRAIN TRUST show creates a holistic world based on the suggestion of a workplace where we see all socio-economic aspects and personalities within that one building, where people gather to connive, betray and compete in the name of business.
