Description

December 14th is the last show. Yes! This is your last chance to see a Moment show in the 9th Street Independent Film Center. It has been a glorious 2 years of growth and experimentation here in the SOMA, but this time has come to an end. This by no means is the end of Moment Improv Theatre classes or shows. In fact we have a very special announcement to make at the end of the night. If you are a friend of Moment, have been a part of a class or performed on the Moment stage we urge you to come out one last time to help close out this chapter and to learn what the next chapter has in store for us all.

Running since 2015, Moment Improv Theatre hosts a monthly "Two Play Improv Extravaganza" which features three unique improv comedy duos who each push the limit of what is possible onstage in inventive and interesting ways. Hosting the show will be special guest, Tirumari Jothi, who will have you laughing before and after each improv performance with engaging crowd work and top notch comedy.

This month we have an incredible treat for you! Closing out the show will be local favorites Liss n' Sams with Second City alumnus Joe Liss and Moment's Artistic Director, Marcus Sams! They've played multiple improv festivals across the country as well as Second City, LA. Ron West of Whose Line is it Anyway said, “Liss n’ Sams made me laugh… and I don’t laugh at improv anymore.”

Right before them you will see Veteran Improv players hailing from Leela, Nicole Odell & Christopher DeJong Nicole has been killing it with Killing my Lobster, Chris just saw the Grand Canyon, and together they slayed at the San Francisco Improv festival!

Opening the show will be a one local guest that just played the Hawaii Improv festival and an out of town guest that is one of Seattle’s Best! Come see this special delivery known as Staciegram!

Laugh off your long week with us at Moment!

This is a 18+ Event.

Host: Tirumari Jothi

Tirumari has been performing comedy for six years, with stand-up as his first love, but he also loves improv and sketch acting so please don't ask him to choose. You can find him either performing with the geeky comedy group he co-founded, Komedio Comedy; hosting videogame drinking tournaments/shows with the Super Trashed Bros at the Brewcade, PianoFight Theater, or Beer Nerds; acting on stage with Killing My Lobster performing sketch comedy; or online in a variety of random commercials, if you're specifically into watching commercials for some reason. If you want to hear his voice without any of the accompanying visual aspects, you can catch him regularly on Komedio's hit podcast; Nerd Rage: The Great Debates! If you can't find him doing any of that, then he's home playing videogames or watching cartoons.


Liss n' Sams : Joe Liss & Marcus Sams

Joe Liss and Marcus Sams first performed together in a Leela show and they instantly felt the improv Karma that transformed into Liss n’ Sams! Since then they have improvised all over the country. Joe is a Second City alumnus and has appeared on TV in Hidden America with Jonah Ray, Curb Your Enthusiasm, and Strangers With Candy. Film roles include God Bless America, Wayne’s World II, Home Alone 2, and Major League. Among his writing credits are Third Rock From the Sun, SpongeBob Squarepants, and Drawn Together. Marcus is the Artistic Director of Moment Improv Theatre, the co-founder of the Bay Area Film Mixer and a working actor. He has performed in 60+ national improv festival shows, was a member of the critically-acclaimed group, Oui Be Negroes, and has performed with Leela for over decade.


Odell, & DeJong: Nicole Odell, Christopher DeJong

Odell & DeJong explore the inner lives of characters onstage, improvising performances that combine comedy with emotional truth. They met while teaching and directing at Leela in San Francisco, formed a duo in 2015, and have been playing in San Francisco and at improv and comedy festivals ever since.


Staciegram: Stacie Blanke & Graham Downing

Staciegram is a delightful duo with Graham Downing and Stacie Blanke. They met at a Hawaii improv festival and fell in friendship love instantaneously. Although Graham hails from Seattle and Stacie is here in the Bay, they refuse to let distance stop them from delivering you a message of improvised joy. They both enjoy regularly eating entire ice cream pints in one sitting. Stacie has performed with Peach Pit for over three years locally and at festivals across the US. Graham has been doing improv since 2004, has performed a multiple national improv festivals including the Chicago Improv festival and the Out of Bounds Comedy Festival in Austin, TX!
