Thursday Night Throwdown says
The month is now August, and the dust has just settled after The Stumptown Improv festival. While out-of-town talent rocked Portland audiences, The Lucky Ones defended Friday Night Fights for the second time -- securing their position as champion.

But no champion is safe for long in this thirsty improv scene. And you can bet that after the festival the groups this week will be briming over with aspriation and the bravery to execute some bold moves. Let's meet our challengers ...

Justin Himes and Ryan King literally rocked audiences last April with their metal inspired brand of improv, winning TNT and only barely losing FNF to the historic Van Sams run. Resurrecting the form that filled Curious with growling noises and devil horns, this killer duo is back, and this time they're out for bloooood!

The Fox and the Hound
Jessica Zodrow and Chris Williams join forces for the first time to create what is sure to be a soulful performance full of bittersweet moments and emotional truths. As a child, the movie taught you about the heartbreak of friendship. As an adult, these veteran improvisers will teach you that there's still a lot to learn.

Hey Dad!
Nate Smith and Ross Laguzza need little introduction to Curious regulars; both play with a vibrance and energy that shines on stage. After working together on house team Grizzly, these dads decided to team up and craft scenes pulling from their respective lifetimes of experience. But don't expect a stuffy, arm-chair sitting, pipe-smoking father -- these dads aren't afraid to sit on the floor and explore silliness with a seriousness that always makes you smile.

There you have it! Three amazing teams from the bountiful garden of the Portland improv scene. Each will get 17 minutes to take YOU, the audience, on a journey. And at the end of the show YOU, the audience, will select a winner. This is THURSDAY NIGHT THROWDOWN, don't miss it.
