16 Jan The Nursery Podcast #23 – OTS
We are celebrating the new year by releasing our Slapdash 2017 podcasts. OTS performed on Thurday night and if you haven’t seen it, watch their show below. It’s magic. In this podcast, they talk to Heather and Jules about silent movies, making up a whole style of improv for yourself, the meaning of ‘Aloha’ and Morcambe and Wise.

On the Spot Improv
On The Spot Improv is Hawaii’s longest running improv group. Established 2001, the group has been called one of the most innovative improv groups in the world by Chicago Improv Festival Executive Producer Jonathan Pitts. Their signature style incorporates narrative storytelling, minimal dialog, and strong blocking to create cinematic images to tell complex stories.
OTS made a name for themselves in the national improv community creating several original genre-esque formats, including but not limited to their improvised macabre show “Tell Tale Dreadful,” their improvised homage to the master of suspense “Hitchcock,” their playful 1920’s live action silent movie show “HUSH”, a fully improvised Kabuki style show “Screwbuki”. They have performed all over the country in places such as the Austin Out of Bounds Comedy Festival, Phoenix Improv Festival, Chicago Improv Festival, and the Seattle Festival of Improv Theater.
