Rare Bird Show
One word is everything for this long-form improv trio. The premise is simple: Audience members arrive and yell out random words, one of which inspires the entire 30-minute act. This year, the comedians are adding two hourlong shows to their repertoire - either they'll split the hour into two shows, allowing the audience to inspire them twice, or enter unprecedented territory and riff off a single word for 60 minutes. That's next-level.
