The Armando Show:
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.
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.
