NCF: Improv Explosion (Saturday)
Push Comedy Theater
763 Granby St
Chris Trew +2
Trew + 2 is Chris Trew plus two strangers from the audience with no improv experience who get a very quick lesson (less than 3 minutes). The three of them do a montage, the final scene being the first and only scene featuring only the two strangers who, strangely enough, always seem to figure it out and make something killer and memorable happen.
Trew + 2 is a big hit on the comedy festival circuit and is appearing at several festivals this year.
About Chris: Chris Trew is a full time comedian (“Trew is out of his fucking mind” - The Austin Chronicle) and part time professional wrestling manager (“a performance artist at the highest level” - The Wrestling Blog) splitting his time between New Orleans and Austin where he is the Creative Director of The New Movement, a comedy theater and training center that's home to events like Hell Yes Fest and the Megaphone Marathons.
Trew has headlined comedy festivals all over the U.S. and has been featured in GQ Magazine, Splitsider, the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally, America’s Got Talent, and many other strange things. He helped “start a comedy scene from scratch” (Splitsider) and is the co-host of Air Sex Battles on MTV, debuting later this year.
He was named "one of 10 comedians you should know" by Paper Magazine and is the co-author of Improv Wins, a book about improv that serves as the textbook at The New Movement.
