In the decade-plus that Improv Everywhere has staged pranks around New York City, the subway continues to appear as a background setting—stunts like High Five Escalator and, of course, the No Pants Subway Ride have used the transit system and its commuters as a stage.
The group's latest, Talk Show Subway Car, is no different: They set up a small late-night talk-show set, complete with a desk and branded mugs, at the end of an N train, and invited commuters to chat. We love the idea—you never know what sorts of interesting people are riding next to you, as the snippets of interviews prove.
