What is IMPROV MONSTER? It is true stories, live comedy, completely
unscripted. Imagine the irreverence of early Saturday Night Live, the
colorful characters of Christopher Guest's best work (Waiting For
Guffman, Best In Show), and the madcap improvised mayhem of the
Upright Citizens Brigade. Now imagine it performed by Atlanta's best
improvised theatre veterans, and you have Jackpie's IMPROV MONSTER.

Co-directed by Jackpie Theatre founder Jim Karwisch and John Sexton,
IMPROV MONSTER takes its inspiration from different guest artists
every week, whose performances provide the source material for their
long-form improvised scene-work. Recent sources have included
burlesque troupes, circus acts and musicians ranging from Granville
Automatic to award-winning composer Klimchak. Together, IMPROV MONSTER
and their guests forge a unique artistic fusion unlike anything the
Atlanta improv scene has ever seen.

In December the show's theme will be the holidays, with a different
monologuist spinning yarns every week. Guests will include Santa Sam
Smith (Dec 2), the cast of Actors Express' "Every Christmas Story Ever
Told" (Dec 9), and actress Kara Cantrell of Stone Mountain Christmas
(Dec 16). Tickets are $10, $5 with student ID, or FREE with the
donation of a new, unwrapped toy for the Atlanta Union Mission.
