This was a nice surprise! I'd planned to see another show prior to seeing Tap Shoes and Buckets - but evidently, that showed cancelled and this one took it's place. I didn't think I'd be able to see Tim Wick or Jena Young in a show this Fringe season - and there they were! Another very fun show - never disappointed! The Ironman bit was great.

This show is all about the guest performers, of which there were 5 up on stage in addition to the emcee and the timekeeper. What little I saw and heard of the first 4 performers suggested that they would probably be quite entertaining if given a chance to talk. Unfortunately I'll never know because the 5th performer was determined to be the focus of attention for the entire duration of the show. After the first few minutes I literally closed my eyes to better focus on what was being said by everyone else, which helped a bit. As with any improv, you roll the dice with each performance. This could be a very funny show but tonight's was just annoying.

It was entertaining. We'd like a little more for our bucks, say some costuming, juggling, a gong and definitely a trophy.

A great way to see some of your favorite Fringe performers try and beat the clock by talking for a minute without repeating any words! The game is really hard and great fun ensues!

Don't go expecting a plot but do expect to be entertained.

I enjoyed this. Back in the day when The Scrimshaws had late, late shows, this would have been a beautiful fit. If you're a Fringe geek, you'll enjoy the inside references. If you're only seeing a few shows, I'd skip this one. Allegra won! Yay!

What a perfect way to end a Fringe evening! This show is a delight and a great surprise. If you're looking for a delightful time with some of your favorite Fringe performers, writers and volunteers - this show is for you.

I went and saw this because another show nearby was sold out, and the Fringe person mentioned this as another local show. I generally don't love things entitled "improv" but this actually really did make me laugh. The performers were funny and talented. The show wasn't hugely attended, which is too bad, because I think with a crowd that was more "in it" it would have been even more fun, but I definitely wasn't disappointed!

When the premise was explained to me, I really didn't know what to expect. I was impressed with all the performers abilities. This show was a lot of fun.

...but only for the audience.
The set-up on this game sounded simple enough, leaving me wondering how this could possible entertain for an hour. About a minute in, the realization hit that it really is a drinking game in sheep's clothing where the banter of the participants and their interactions was the main show. Definitely a lot of fun with the Sunday's contestants. Check the show's page to look for your favorite performer(s) - don't think you'll be disappointed if you give this one a shot.

5 Stars because my 9yr old insisted (the same child who said she wanted to go home as we entered the theater)-I'd have given it 4 only cuz it wasn't theater in the traditional sense-more like being the studio audience at the taping of a game show. A really engaging, clever gameshow. Like the ones I watched as a kid-with celebrities. I did feel a tad voyeuristic somehow; as tho I were eavesdropping on a bunch of funnier-than-my-friends group of people sitting in the next booth in a pub. The group I'd want to be a part of. OK I WOULD give em 5-mostly cuz the "host" is fabulously quickwitted &the guy with the 'hawk was cute. Oh and Dawn is the bestie I never had.
Great way to wind down the night! Even better cuz we live around the corner!

And a very nice opportunity to get to know some of your favorite Fringe performers in a new way, as well as maybe meet some new ones. The game is harder than you might think. And s/he who hesitates is lost. But everyone has a good time, including the audience.
