It's been a little while since our "Neapolitan I.C.E." live show, but here's an amuse-bouche from that show to keep you going until we're live again.
Only 17 minutes, so it won't ruin your appetite.

Last year we created a tasty, hour-long, live show "Neapolitan I.C.E." which was made of 3 acts.
We will re-release them in yummy bite-size pieces.
Here's a 17-minute improvised play based on our audience suggestion "Jurassic Park Returns, But Worse!"

We just finished a terrific joint workshop with @WarwickImprov. Genie (WITS) and Barney (Nauts) each took half of the group and we played with storytelling.
It's always a great experience to work with new improvisers, especially when they're so talented and friendly!
Thank you!
