The Armando Show is a 90-minute long improvised comedy show inspired by an audience suggestion, which the celebrity hosts interpret through a personal and truthful improvised monologue. Inspired by that monologue, a cast composed of veteran Chicago and Los Angeles alumni perform scenes that, in turn, inspire a response from Armando. This propels hilarious interchanges between Armando’s monologues and the company’s scenes.
The cast includes Craig Cackowski (Community), Frank Caeti (MADtv, Reno 911), Mike Coen (The Brothers Solomon), Shulie Cowen (How I Met Your Mother, Reno 911), Josh DuBose (Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip), Molly Erdman (According to Jim, The Goods), Thomas Fowler (Joey, World Cup Comedy), Megan Grano (Bridesmaids), Dave Hill (La La Land), Jessica Makinson (Halfway Home), Seamus McCarthy (The Office), Brian James O’Connell (Dr. God, ANGRY WHITE MAN), Zabeth Russell (Mystic River), Tami Sagher (Curb Your Enthusiasm, Knocked Up, How I Met Your Mother), Douglas Sarine (Ask a Ninja, Monk), Brian Shortall (In Treatment), and Seth Weitberg (Mash Up) and Mike Bunin (My Boys).
Reservations are strongly recommended.
LA Times reviewer F. Kathleen Foley describes the performance by saying, " …this free-associative repetition melds into Zen-like flights of fancy…."
This show is the reason to see live improv in Los Angeles.
