PRODUCTION DESCRIPTION

*** Comedy Response Unit closed it's doors in the summer of 2002 *** Centuries ago, long before the dawn of history, a furtive and introverted people erected a statue. Massive and ominous it stood among the green pastures of the unknown knolls of Pangea. For those who idolized it, nourishing rains and bountiful harvests permeated the lands, and those people, unnamed even in our own lifetime, lived a life bordering on hedonism. But for those who disparaged it, it brought minor annoyances like the dreaded hangnail and often-difficult-to-get-rid-of cankersore.

(The rest of this enticing history can be found on the CRU home page.)

Long-Form Supremacy

These guys and gals don't get the credit they deserve in this town. I just read that they are struggling to keep alive and that is a shame. I urge anyone who hasn't seen them to go. If they have to close down, you will have missed some of the finest performances in Atlanta. I've seen them numerous times and no one in Atlanta does it like the CRU. They have long-form shows, 2 hours long, and long-form pieces, such as the Harold, that are 30 to 45 minutes long (depending on which night you go).

They have brought the true art of improv to this town and they have been looked over. They are just as good as any of the groups from Chicago and New York that I've seen. The connections that they make during their performances always make me think "how did they find that?" It is intelligent, entertaining and unique. What a shame.

Raw, risk-taking, and intelligent. These guys have great connections on stage. The theater looks amazing with all of the changes and additions. Definitely check them out. [POST A COMMENT REGARDING THIS REVIEW]

I've seen these folks on off nights. I've seen them when there were eight people in the audience. Invariably, by the end of the evening, my face hurts from laughing. Spontaneity is a big part of it, but the real thing here is chemistry. It's obvious these folks love working with each other, and the audience reaps the benefits. CRU deserves to be as revered in Atlanta's improv scene as TheatreSports at Dad's Garage. [POST A COMMENT REGARDING THIS REVIEW]

I went to see the CRU this past Saturday and just wow! I laughed myself silly. Not only are they funny, they truly make improv an art form. True to their word, they're original and unique. [POST A COMMENT REGARDING THIS REVIEW]
