Storyline

To celebrate the "birthday" of the famous Improv comedy club, 6 famous comedians get up on stage and do their thing. However, to make things interesting, while each one does his particular routine, the other 5 comics sit at the back of the stage and heckle the performer. This video is especially notable for Martin Mull issuing a zinger at Robin Williams that shuts-up the otherwise motor-mouthed comic for at least 5 seconds. Written by Afterburner <aburner@erols.com>

Not to be missed!!!
6 November 2002 | by (Kansas City) – See all my reviews

All of these talented comedians do standup-riffs and take-offs of each other - from the simple set of a half-dozen bar stools and a mike or two. Nothing between you and their Brilliance! They play off against each other, again and again, and even Crystal & the ever manic Williams are soundly topped, by the guy you would never think could top them all!

No spoiler, but if you don't find a way to see this you will have missed the top stand-up performers at the height of the form and their form - with one really hot hot hot wit blowing every one of the others away - to the point that they are falling off their stools while this comedian shows that even low-key delivery can demolish the fastest brains in the business.

See this show!
