MICF: #Improvilicious: The Improvised Guide to the Internet (3.5 stars)

>#Improvilicious: The Improvised Guide to the Internet is currently being performed at the Melbourne Town Hall as part of the Melbourne Comedy Festival. Starring performers Ben Russell and Cassie Daly, the show is presented by Always Working Artist.

Using audience suggestions and on the spot made up characters, Ben and Cassie take us through the dos and don’ts of the internet. Ben and Cassie use their improvisation skills to demonstrate a hilarious internet survival guide that takes us through entertaining scenes that depict internet trolls, pet snails, cat meme land where hours are wasted, scrolling your Facebook feed, creating a profile, rescripted YouTube videos, and introduce us to the ‘Master of Notifications’ and the ‘Keeper of the Internet.’ This is a show for the internet generation.

The show would be suitable for children from ages 10 and up. While it is mainly aimed at the younger generation of tweens and teenagers older generations will also enjoy it. I had a few laughs and at times had tears in my eyes – mainly from the crazy scenes and characters created by the suggestions from the audience.

If you are looking for something to do with the kids this school holidays then you need to take them to see >#Improvilicious: The Improvised Guide to the Internet. The show offers many opportunities for volunteer participation on stage and will give amusing results each time. The best thing about it is that as each show is based on audience suggestions, not one show is the same!
