About the Show
Black by Popular Demand perform a deconstruction. We start with one, longish scene (based on an audience suggestion) then follow with a series of scenes connected to or referencing the original scene.
About the Group
Black by Popular Demand is a diverse group of performers that are united by their identification as black or mixed race. Improv comedy brought them together to tell stories. In addition, the team is evenly split between male and female, includes multiple sexualities and has an age range of 30 years. They work to use our differences to engage our audiences and to build fun (and hilarious) scenes. BBPD is based in Portland but have performed around the country including the New Orleans Comedy & Arts Festival and the Del Close Marathon in New York.
