New York's finest improvisers join forces with New York's finest poets in a unique format that is part comedy show, part poetry feature and completely unpredictable.
It all begins with an exquisite corpse written collaboratively, line-by-line by the audience beforehand. The improvisers then delve in, building an entire world around the themes and imagery of the poem and inhabiting it with a cast of characters that are wildly funny, heartbreakingly tragic, and everything in between.
Along the way, the show is fueled by the amazing work of published poets, national slam champions, and up-and-comers from around the country and across the globe, shaking the rafters and rousing souls with original poetry that is raw, personal and profound.
The whole show ends with the performance of a brand new poem written on the spot and inspired by the entire show. It's comedy, it's poetry, it's theater and art. It is everything you came to this New York to see.
The cast includes performers and poets with credits from This American Life, NPR, The Onion, The Second City, The Truth Podcast, Reductress and Story Pirates.

I thought I would try to make something for everyone. You know, like ballet or a good subscription audience kind of play. I consider myself a populist, but some people really hate my work. They even hate me they hate my work so much. So I thought: 'Well, why don't I make a really pretty ballet or a play about a straight couple and their issues?" So that's what I'm going to do. Oh, I also just wanted to say, that not everyone is going to make it. I don't mean make it to the show. I mean make it out of the show alive.'
