If you missed it, here’s video from our show at the Magnet Theater’s Chicago Improv Festival showcase show from Sat. March 23rd.
My comedy duo team RuBin got into Philly’s Two Person Improv Festival - DuoFest! Binu Paulose and myself are comedy duo RuBin and we are delighted to be performing again this year at Duo-Fest in Philadelphia! We love the comedy scene (and the burger scene) in Philly and Duo Fest is one of our favorite Improv Festivals! We will be performing on closing night Sunday, June 9th at 8pm an hour before our improv gurus Christina Gausas and Armando Diaz take the stage and close out the festival with their incredible duo show! Details here: http://duofest.com/
Two-person team Rubin needed the suggestion of a major life change to get started. Based on my shout out of “job layoffs,” they handily found the game (and a little truth in comedy) in a scene in which a middle management drone bids farewell to his coworker, not realizing she has been selected to take his place. They were solid.
Holy kittens, this is amazing!
See us tomorrow night @ 8pm for the CIF Urban Showcase (1422 W. Irvine Park Road)! Get your tickets now!
