Fat Kitten must have the best name in improv. I love kittens. In this show, Fat Kitten are up against another improv troop in a ‘who does the best improv?’ competition. Fat kitten won, although on this occasion I preferred the other lot. An amusing hour, not the best I’ve ever seen but fine.
The idea of a resident improv team competing with a visiting team seemes appealing, but in reality I think it mean that neither team ever really got into their stride, and they were both playing games they didn’t know well enough to be really slick at a good chunk of the time. It was good fun, and there were clearly a lot of fans of both teams in the house as there was a fair bit of banter. A good laugh, but there I’ve seen much better improv this year, most notably from The Noise Next Door.
