Very Special Episode
A Jet City Improv production from Seattle, WA
Saturday, February 18, 8:00pm, at the SFIT Second Stage
About the Show
Man buns. Selfie sticks. Anonymous text messages. It seems like new dangers are popping up every day and the good people of America have nowhere to turn for guidance.
Inspired by all those 1980’s and 1990’s TV sitcoms that suspended their light-hearted tone for one episode to take on an emotional or taboo topic of their time, Very Special Episode is here to bring the same gravity (and tension-breaking laugh track) to the trivial challenges of today. Every performance is completely improvised and uses topics suggested by you to create some seriously sappy sitcom episodes that demonstrate how the characters from then might have handled the challenges of now.
