10:30pm @ Salvage Vanguard Theater - Apples Stage

Shana Merlin, Sara Farr, Shannon McCormick

Get Up

Austin, Texas

Get Up is two master improvisers from Austin, Texas presenting narrative long form at its best. Expect multiple characters, quick edits, and sophisticated comedy as they make up a complete story on the spot.

"Get Up improvisers Shannon McCormick and Shana Merlin are so in sync, it's scary. Is it supernatural? A mind meld? Or just wicked smart improv?" -- Austin Chronicle January 30, 2009

"**Recommended. These two veteran ensembles consistently make us laugh with their commitment to characters, story and occasionally un-PC situations. Get Up's Shannon McCormick (Salvage Vanguard Theatre, Gnap! Productions) and Shana Merlin know how it's done" -- The Austinist July 27, 2006

Winner: Austin Critics Table Award

Rod Ben Zeev, Ben Silburn

Live Man Show

Amsterdam, The Netherlands

For generations, man has struggled with the age old question: what makes a man, a man? In 2010, Ben Silburn and Rod Ben Zeev discovered the answer after a late night joint. The answer was transformed into a show and the show was performed for a grateful all-female audience in Florence, Italy as part of an effort to raise money to prevent violence against women in Africa.

In this totally improvised performance Ben and Rod will take the audience on a journey that will finally explain why men behave the way they do and whether this vicious cycle can ever be stopped.

Live Man Show is a 50 minute improvised show about the various stages in an audience member's life from birth to death. The show breaks the forth wall in its first ten minutes gathering info from one male audience member and continues for an additional 40 minutes by showing the various stages in this person's life without breaking the forth wall.

Live Man Show is a theater piece that happens to be improvised. Every show takes the audience on a unique journey that combines physical and verbal play which will be both funny and touching.
