Meet candidates for governor. Learn about the grocery store business. See concerns about the census turned into improv comedy. It’s a brand new season of The Theater of Public Policy!
Described as “What could become Minnesota's answer to Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert,” The Theater of Public Policy (T2P2 for short) uses improv comedy to reframe hard, thinky stuff.
Using live on-stage conversations with newsmakers and big thinkers, T2P2 makes issues come alive through improv comedy theater. Each night:
- The show’s host interviews a leading thinker on a big issue
- Then a team of the Twin Cities’ most talented improvisers use the conversation as inspiration for longform improv comedy
- In the second half of the show, the guest answers questions from the audience
- The show wraps up with more no-holds-barred unscripted comedy
No two performances are the same but the results are always surprise and delight. See a short video about how The Theater of Public Policy works at: http://vimeo.com/65870159
