Beginning with a single question to the audience for a location, they quickly form an opening scene to a story that will change locations, characters, go off on tangents and snap back again, becoming the entire show. Small Car’s form of improvisational comedy is literary.
They’re been together for roughly 18 months, and it shows in the work – not only in how well they play off each other in any particular scene, but also in knowing when to call an end to a scene and where to set the next one.
The only downside to their performance was the space they were doing it in, a cramped box with no fan or air conditioning. A little less sweltering and the brilliant work the guys were doing would have been appreciated more.
