The Five Deadly Improvisors
Kung Fu Improv. Really. In the summer of 2011, five improvisers, who each were accomplished in the San Francisco improv community, had an idea for a new improv group. The goal: to create an ensemble that would perform fully improvised classic Kung Fu movies.
The main trait that would distinguish this group was realistic looking stage Kung Fu combat, amble physical movement, dynamic environments, and active chases. The shows are a serious evocation of the genre, not to parody. They have an epic feel. The stories are classic battles of good versus evil, and love lost and won.
