The Twin Cities improvisation community is booming. Each week, local improvisors Philip Simondet and Matthew McCloud interview an improv team (or other artist) and then improvise with them. Matt digs deep into the improv philosophy and theory behind each guest during the interview portion of the show. In Philip's Corner, Philip proves that you don't have to ask good questions to get good answers. Then, the hosts join the guests for some improvisation that could go anywhere and be about anything!

Customer Reviews

Twin Cities Improv’s finest

This show is a great combination of discussing and dissecting improvisation while also creating some great, entertaining improv. Minnesota’s improv and comedy communities are under appreciated, so it’s great to have this show shine a lot on so much goodness.

Great insights

A wonderful look into the improv community in the Twin Cities. Great discussion and very fun improvisations in each episode. Fantastic!

irreverently Insightful (or the other way around?)

Next at Bat gives a great, in-depth view of the improv/sketch/comedy scene of the Twin Cities by having guests talk about their process and ideas, and then allowing listeners to see their theories put into practice. Its delightful, fun, and at times, even a little sexy.
