Just For Laughs Review: Adsit and Lutz at MainLine

Posted by Amie / July 26, 2013

Adsit-and-lutz-just-for-laughs"You are a woman trapped in the body of a man."

Some telemarketer just called my house and when I answered there was silence on the end of the line for 5 seconds before the above line was spoken by a woman with a Chinese accent...which is sort of like the improv show John Lutz and Scott Adsit did at the Mainline Theatre on St-Laurent on Wednesday night. You know these guys. They're the executive producer, Pete Hornberger and writer J.D. Lutz from the show 30 Rock. No, not Adsit and Lutz have two more nights of improv at the Mainline for Just For Laughs. It's short, it's sweet, it's hilarious, and it's completely worth the $20.

An hour on stage with nothing but a single word to get their series of scenes started. Ostie, improv is hard. I say their show was sort of like my telemarketer horoscope because they play characters from men to women to children, so I think all these things are stuffed inside them.

lutz-just-for-laughsI can't tell you about specifics because it's actually improvised and will be different every night. I can tell you it's the only time you'll get to be spitting distance from these two amazing comedians. And I can tell you they work well together. They didn't do over-the-top physical comedy, but they knew how to move from scene to scene and play off each other, working classic improv games into their scenes. And suddenly when the whole thing ended way too soon, they turned into shy guys who were a little uncomfortable talking up their next three nights of shows. Where they hadn't stuttered or stopped for the last improvised hour of song, dance, and platypi, suddenly there were "um"s and "uh"s.

Its like you learn my mind! You seem to grasp a lot about this, like you wrote the ebook
in it or something. I feel that you just could do with some % to power the message home a bit, but other than that,
that is fantastic blog. A great read. I will certainly be back.
