More Details:

Improvisation is a performance phenomenon that took off in the 1950’s at Chicago’s Second City, and has grown ever since. Most people recognize improvisation from the television show “Whose Line Is it Anyway?” In improvisation, the performers take suggestions from the audience, and improvise – that is to say, completely make up from scratch – scenes and scenarios based on those suggestions. The Silverbacks also feature a keyboardist playing live improvised music to accompany the scenes. The style of the Silverbacks is often intellectually stimulating while providing belly laughs at the same time.
