North Coast presents: ANYBODY


North Coast, New York City’s premier hip-hop improv team, has long been known for their seamless melding of high-energy freestyle rapping and long-form improv comedy. In the spirit of Lin Manuel Miranda’s Broadway hit Hamilton, ANYBODY is a fully improvised historical “hip-hopera” based on a historical figure suggested by the audience. Named one of the “Top Ten Best Comedy Shows” by Time Out New York, North Coast has been featured on VH1, on Slate’s Podcast The Gist, The Village Voice, and The New York Times Comedy Listings. They perform every Saturday night at The Peoples Improv Theater in New York City.


Grammelot


Grammelot is an improvised musical art piece. Starting with three randomly chosen objects from a bag of miscellany and concluding with three or more developed characters, Pittsburgh Magazine’s 2016 “Solo Tour de Force” Best of the ‘Burgh performer Ayne Terceira and her accompanist take audience members on a journey that spans gibberish preludes, memorable refrains, genre and social commentary.


Improvised Mythology


Improvised Mythology asks the audience for a question and then creates an original myth involving mortals, royals, monsters, and gods. Dressed in simple ancient Greek garbs, the players embark on an adventure ending with the mythical answer to the question given at the beginning.
