Inspirado was on fire last night! Wow. 7x winners…Upstate. AYG. Wow! Trash talk was fierce, shows were plugged, shit was thrown down, it got so hot the lights went out (for real). Pumpkin team captain, Alan Fessenden had some serious trash, “I’m here with all my friends, where are yours?” AYG, alone…resembled Katniss Everdeen in this moment, he pulled out his (metaphoric) bow and arrow and headed into the arena. Here we go!
Pumpkin went first and chose an Indianapolis challenge! Here was their challenge, “Indianapolis has the largest children’s museum in the world- The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis. Your show tonight must feature at least 6 child predators.” Immediately we were given a slow grounded scene between an older man and a younger girl. Love? Of course! Pumpkin’s piece was filled with playground scenes, old woman making passes at pool boys and father’s who “gave up child porn”. In the end, child predators would have beem proud.
Upstate in their 7th week on the Inspirado stage, found themselves cut in half. Andrew Yurman-Glaser, the ultimate improv machine, was forced to do another one man show. Could he do it? Upstate chose an Artsy challenge and received Presentation. AYG had to give a presentation, using the slide show that was provided. Immediately he began painting the boardroom with golf lovers, lazy co-workers and a crazy old founder. His presentation was on “the future of soft drinks”. He went on to make a convincing argument for his new product “Osama Bin Pepsi”. In the end, the audience was thirsty for an offensive soda…Well Done!
Upstate WINS! Moving into their 8th week on the Inspirado stage, one has to wonder…will they go all the way? The only other team to make it this far was Brick, and well, we all know how that turned out. The only thing that stands in their way is the indy team Orange Augustus. Will they be the domino that knocks down this long line of dominos called Upstate? Or will Upstate soldier on to their OH SHIT! destiny? You decide! Thursday. 11pm- an all new action packed INSPIRADOOOOOO!!!!!!!!
