Matt& | Improv Comedy
CSz Philadelphia is proud to present MATT& starring Matt Holmes and an audience volunteer.
Matt& is an improv comedy show where Matt Holmes performs with a random stranger plucked from the audience. Called a “must-see” and a “best worst nightmare come true,” nothing is planned, it’s all made up live as you're watching it, and every performance is unique.
"My partner is almost always someone who has never even seen improv before, let alone tried to do it", says Matt. "I tell them three things: they can do and say whatever they want, it's my job to make it work, and everyone wants them to succeed."
If you're used to improv shows, this one might feel a little different. Not only because of the audience member's starring role, but also because Matt and his crew incorporate improvised musical accompaniment, improvised lighting, and improvised sound effects, giving the show a more theatrical and cinematic feel.
Matt& runs Sundays in March @ 7PM. Tickets are $10.
