SHRIMP FORKS – Karen Graci (Tuca and Bertie/Girlboss) and Nick Armstrong (Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Parks and Recreation) both members of the critically acclaimed improv team out of Los Angeles King Ten, here they team up to do a more intimate improvised show with the same tenacity, fast, and fun play they are known for. Karen and Nick have been improvising together for over 15 years and look forward to bringing you an unforgettable show. Based on a single suggestion they will improvise a long-form improvised set, almost like making an episode of a sitcom right on the spot.
