Jen Krueger has co-hosted The Manifesto Show for over five years. As that show winds down to its finale, one thing is certain: she has watched a lot of indie improv.

So who better to watch EVEN MORE IMPROV than Jen at this month's Side Coach?

We've got a great goddamn lineup!

SPRING BREAK 08 - Nina Pusateri, Dave Wielgosz, Cameron Hay, Zoe Tracy, David Romo, Michelle Shelton, Dan Steinberg, Ben Crutcher, Neel Ghosh, Josh Jacobs

JUICE - Luke Jensen, Jack Gilbert, Michael Italiano


Ever watched an improv scene that could have been 100 times better with just one little adjustment? We all have, and that's where the Side Coach comes in. At every show, we ask a different UCB teacher or coach to sit on stage and give notes - while the show is going on!

The side coaching might be as simple as "make a stronger choice" or "say yes to this offering", or could be a more elaborate description of what's not working in the scene. The audience laughs, the team on stage gets their minds blown, and the coach gets a nice ego stroke. Everyone wins!
