Virtual Duo Comedy Showcase, Wed.  8:30

This Wednesday, Duo Comedy Improv Showcase features a Seattle favorite, Carskee! As usual, it’ll be live-streamed on UP’s Twitch and Facebook channel.

Carskee is a long-form two-person improv team comprised of Jennifer Cargill & Erin Plischke. Their format is heavily influenced by their many years of training in Chicago’s improv scene and their years of performing in Austin’s eclectic improv scene. Carskee takes one suggestion and creates distinct characters that explore their relationship to each other and to the suggestion. They interweave from scene to scene creating new characters, stories, and an abundance of laughter.

Free and open to all! Wednesday 8:30PT NOTE: This is a LIVE event on UP’s Twitch channel

Unless otherwise noted in the show description, we describe all of our shows as PG13. While Unexpected Productions always strives to present material that is appropriate for teen and adult audiences, due to the unpredictable and audience participatory nature of improvisation, it is impossible to guarantee the content.

SIGN UP! All experience levels sign up for this. So don’t be afraid – YOUR TEAM may be the next Penn & Teller, Martin & Lewis, Bevis, and Butthead…. or you may end up driving off a cliff like Thelma & Louise! Sign your duo up at
