RISE Comedy Festival – Big Yellow Taxi, Mockumentary Now! (Sat 7/29 @ 7:00 PM)

BIG YELLOW TAXI – Big Yellow Taxi took its first ride in 2011 and has since become one of the longest-running improvised comedy shows in Los Angeles! A powerhouse cast of seasoned improvisers and special guest drivers take the suggestion of a city anywhere in the world and create a universe of characters inspired by taxi cab “confessions.” The show brings smart, clever comedy with dark undertones, social commentary, pop culture, emotional poignancy, and bold characters. The result is a hilarious journey with unexpected turns and a collision of witty storytelling, theatricality, and schadenfreude. Big Yellow Taxi calls The Glendale Room home and can be seen there every 2nd Thursday of the month! Past guest drivers have included comedy royalty like Phil LaMarr, Mo Collins, Lucas Neff and Ronnie Karam, horror legends like Derek Mears and Betsy Baker, and pro wrestlers such as Dan Barry and the “Hollywood Hunk” Ryan Nemeth.

MOCKUMENTARY NOW! – Voted the best film of 1992, Mockumentary Now! is not a film. It’s an improv team of seasoned performers trying to piece together a documentary on the fly, live on stage. Each documentary is inspired by an audience suggestion of an upcoming fictional event. Through imaginary cameras (you the audience), characters reveal their most vulnerable and unthinkable inner thoughts through interviews while preparing for the big day. Will it work? Maybe! Should you go? You are an adult, do whatever you want.
