Sinopsis

The Twin Cities improvisation community is booming. Each week, local improvisors Philip Simondet and Matthew McCloud interview an improv team (or other artist) and then improvise with them. Matt digs deep into the improv philosophy and theory behind each guest during the interview portion of the show. In Philips Corner, Philip proves that you dont have to ask good questions to get good answers. Then, the hosts join the guests for some improvisation that could go anywhere and be about anything!
