What to Expect:
Short-form improvisation usually takes the form of playfully competitive games and scenes based on a large amount of audience suggestions and participation. Popularized by Drew Carey’s “Whose Line Is It Anyway,” short-form is where you might see us perform a Beastie Boys rap about your crappy Thursday, or do a 2- minute film noir about the struggles of an elevator operator. Sea Tea loves short-form because it is a raucous, physical embodiment of both popular culture and traditional stagework. Plus, the audience gets to abuse us quite a lot, which they seem to love.
Long-form improvisation is a series of related scenes and games based off a single audience suggestion. In long-form, players use the single word to get down to the bottom of all of its associations and implications, and build off of those and each other. The product is sometimes a completely improvised three-act play, a complete story, or a series of increasingly brilliant scenes. Sea Tea loves long-form because of the time available to develop complex plotlines, relationships, and patterns. Long-form is not always funny but it is very often mind-blowing. Many of the greatest comedians of our time began by doing long-form: Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Fred Willard, Steve Carrell, Stephen Colbert, Mike Meyers, Chris Farley, Vince Vaughn, and so many more. Long-form has more of a tendency to be strange and uncomfortable, but come along for the ride and we promise you’ll never see anything like it again!
