The Power Of Two: The Improvised Duo - Part One

Season 1, Ep. 22

Two person shows have been a growing trend in improv and with the release of a three part Netflix special from improvisers Thomas Middleditch and Ben Schwartz, there is a now a mainstream spotlight on improvised duos. Despite theatres being closed right now, people around the world are talking about and forming opinions on what an improvised two person show can be. This is the first of two episodes looking at what is special about having just two people performing the whole show.
