YOU GO FIRST
Improv without a net: two veteran Bay Area improvisors step out on stage.
No games.
No format.
No words shouted from the audience.
Someone had better say or do something.

In this completely improvised show, collaborators William Hall (BATS Improv, Fratelli Bologna) and Tim Ereneta (BATS Improv, Storytellers Unplugged) push beyond clever ad-libs to dive into compelling characters and engaging stories, bringing the audience along on their journey to explore modern life and middle age.

From elsewhere on the Web, these comments:

“William is the best kind of improviser: one willing to gleefully push his partner off into the deep end of uncharted waters, but willing to jump in immediately after. Most of the pirate’s booty as well as shark bites I garnered in my improv career I owe to this man.” –Tim

“Tim… you are a very talented man… and your exploration of story is one of the things I most admire about you. That and your 23 inch waist.”  –William
