ShLong Form Improv – Toronto Fringe 2011 Press Release

From press release

ShLong Form Improv
Creative storytelling & HIGH energy improv!

Seoul, Korea’s most hilarious ex-pats perform a delightful mix of SHort and LONG form improv comedy! The audience randomly selects two short form games – favorites from ‘Whose Line is it Anyway?’ – such as New Choice, Foreign Film Dub, Asides, Sound Effects, and more! Each short form will inspire the characters, themes and storylines for an imaginative and original long form. The best of both worlds of improv! Featuring veteran improvisers, plus special guest performers from other shows at the Toronto Fringe Festival!

“quick-witted and likeable” ~ Montreal Gazette
