TNT (Tuesday Night Thing) Member Picks

When: Open run: Tue 9:30 PM

What we've got here are two six-member teams led by improv-world elder statesmen: the illustrious TJ Jagodowski performs with one, the redoubtable Noah Gregoropoulos with the other. Each team gets about 30 minutes in which to build a long-form improvisation. On the night I visited, things got interesting only when Jagodowski or Gregoropoulos stepped up to save his teammates from themselves. Jagodowski was especially impressive, quietly, casually supplying the focus, humor, well-wrought twists, and strong characters that nobody else seemed able to manage. Except for him, it was pretty much all drift. There was precious little development because there was precious little careful listening going on. —Tony Adler
