Available Cupholders: On Tour
Bringing their irreverent, break-neck high-speed narrative improv stylings to The Improv Shop for the first time on their Hindsight 2020 Tour is Available Cupholders!
The Cups will be performing one of their original formats. PROCESS is a spoof of producing a scripted play, except that everything, from auditions, to rehearsal, to opening night (complete with real costumes and props [gasp!]) are all improvised. PROCESS has played all over the country and is an ironclad format for improv, guaranteed to have you rolling with laughter.
Available Cupholders is a nearly two-decade old group of improv and comedy acting professionals based in Austin, TX. Their chemistry and charisma are unmatched in the world of improv and it shows in their incredible level of play on stage. Members of Available Cupholders have worked for Second City, Boom Chicago in Amsterdam, iO and Annoyance in Chicago, Improv Acadia in Maine, Impro Theatre in Los Angeles, and are the founders of the Out of Bounds Comedy Festival in their native Austin, now in it’s 19th year of production. They have played nearly every festival in the country and many abroad including the prestigious Just for Laughs Festival in Montreal. Through membership in NACA in the 2000s, they toured colleges and universities. Their members have also won numerous awards for improv and theatre including Best Actor/Actress in the Austin Chronicle “Best of Austin” edition. They exist to have as much fun as possible and spread the good word about improv far and wide.
