Performing: Friday, June 8th, 11:00 p.m.
Twinprov: Rap-sody is real-life twins Clint and Buck Vrazel improvising a comic hip-hop romp through time, space, and culture – and if you know the words, sing along! Our duo pushes groupmind and storytelling to the limit with seamless scenic, character, and lyrical swapping, often rapping while doing so.
Named by Metromix Chicago as one of the 10 Can’t Miss Shows at the 2011 Chicago Improv Festival, Rap-sody is an original musical long-form in which an audience suggestion is dynamically explored and expanded upon through a series of interwoven improvised scenes and hip hop. Rap-sody often manifests as narrative, vignettes, or Harold. Featuring intimate character moments, absurd physicality, and high concept exploration of the most epic and mundane ramification of ideas, Rap-sody pushes the philosophical and rhythmic boundaries of improv.
Formed in 2009, Twinprov is a nationally-recognized one-of-a-kind comedy troupe made up of two-of-a-kind twin brothers Buck and Clint Vrazel that specializes in creating reality-altering musical improv. These clone comics absorb and warp ideas from pop-culture, movies, games, history, philosophy, science and math to create smart, challenging, off the wall comedy that can’t be duplicated.
