THE AMIE AND KRISTEN SHOW/THE KRISTEN AND AMIE SHOW
Best friends, total babes, and improvisers Amie Roe and Kristen Schier perform an organic and fluid improv comedy show that’s been featured in theater festivals throughout the United States and Canada (eh!). These West Philadelphia natives deliver improvised comedy that is part best girlfriend, part social commentary, and mostly id.
If you make a list of some of the best improvisors in Portland, it just so happens that quite a few of the names on that list are J Names. Why did these "J" folk all decide to reside in Portland? Was there something in the air that drew them together? Is there a "J" in improv? Who knows. But they've taken this magic and are bringing it straight to you.
Forward Slash is whiz-bang, be-kind-rewind improv comedy from Portland, Oregon, piped straight in from the dirty heads of your Sanyo VCR! In their format, the audience controls time, sending characters forward or backward at their whim. How far will they go in either direction? Nobody knows! Forward Slash is comprised of Nate Smith, Kyle Stebbins, and all of the people who are watching Nate Smith and Kyle Stebbins.
