Last night after improv class, I saw part of the First Round of WIT’s F.I.S.T. What is F.I.S.T. you ask?
“In FIST, The Tournament of the Fighting Improv Smackdown Tournament at Washington Improv Theater, 132 improvisers on 44 teams fight for your laughs and votes in the quest to be crowned champion of this single-elimination battle. Starting on March 4th, groups such as itsokaytotouch_75, Menorah Sailboat and Sophie’s Random Selection will have 12 minutes each to take your suggestion and crack you up harder than the competition with their fully improvised show. If you’ve seen improv before, prepare to be impressed, if you haven’t, this is the place to start.”

The shows last night were pretty good, and they only get better as time pass and better teams advance. But like the great NCAA March Madness Tournament, the fun is watching the first weekend/first two rounds. As you know, my hometown favorite is Sophie’s Random Selection and they’ll be out on Saturday at 9:30 pm.
I’ll be volunteering and working in the booth from 7-midnight which means I get to see all three shows Saturday night. Yay! And that’s after an improv make-up class right before and the Georgetown basketball game before that. Busy but very fun weekend planned. Sunday is house hunting and playing matchmaker for two awesome guys that I met and think will be very good together – which means awesome brunch! And who does not love Sunday brunch with two outrageous men?!?
