Short Form is the ONLY Art Form

  • ComedyWorx 3801 Hillsborough Street Raleigh, NC, 27607 United States (map)

Mettlesome and ComedWorx present Terry Withers's "Short Form Is The ONLY Art Form." The successful 19-year run of the short-form improv show critics have called "Disturbingly Visceral" and "Fun For Crazy People." 

The "comedy" scene is filled with "lowest common denominator" long-form improvisers. Sure, that type of improv gets laughs, but nine out of 10 scenes are cheap, undisciplined and painfully long. Host Terry Withers gets to the heart of what is great about spontaneity: Keeping it short! Short-form classics that point to hidden truths will of course be featured, including Party Quirks, Match OUTMATCH, Freeze Tag, Ape Nest, Can You Smell What I'm Heightening? and The Slam Pun Competition, all of which feed the soul and edify the mind.

Among other things, Matt Schlotnick wrote "Was it the best $5 I ever spent? I can't say it was. I actually asked for my money back. At the same time, I'd be lying if I said I wouldn't remember what I saw for the rest of my life."

Don't miss out on this "unforgettable" improv experience.
