Picture your high school drama class. The Adventures of Poncho Kid is kind of like that, except these guys know what they’re doing.
In an improv performance, it’s essential to act as an ensemble. Some improv shows are painful to watch. Actors try to be funny, or don’t carry each other.
This was not that show.
Throughout every game, even if some scenes flop, and they inevitably will sometimes, it’s clear how much fun the actors are having. That commitment makes the successful turns even funnier. Through audience interaction, it allows you to play with them. It’s a greatly intimate kind of performance, written partially members of the crowd. The players are great at ensuring that first-timers, children and seasoned improv veterans all understand what’s happening so they can enjoy the production.
This show is not one of substance, nor one to take seriously, but if you’re willing to have fun, it’ll do the trick.
