KISS THE PRIUS
Kiss the Prius is to Improv what the Five Point Palm Exploding Heart Technique is to assassination killing, in all the right ways. You'll walk away with a heart exploding with joy and amazement. The five actors of KtP aren't afraid of walking the line between heartbreaking and silly, truthful and fantastic, politically correct and down-right rude. Like a Prius to the Kisser, you might not see it coming, but your mind (and heart) will be blown!

JUDI NIHEI, DIANE AMOS, AND DEBI DURST
With a combined improv experience numbering many decades, these women have been involved in almost every improvisation group in San Francisco, starting with The Committee. They are the best there is at what they do.
****And for one night only, local actor and stand-up comedian, Diane Amos ("Nine Months", "Angels in the Outfield" ) and best known in TV land as "The PineSol Lady" guest stars as the monologist for Leela's Armando Company.
Developed by legendary improvisor and teacher, Armando Diaz (The Magnet, NYC), The Armando Diaz Theatrical Experience is a long-form improvised structure played at improv houses across the country. The premise is simple. Truth inspires great improv. A guest monologist improvises true stories, and a cast of some of the best improvisors of the SF Bay Area improvise scenes inspired by these truths. What follows is a patchwork of truthful artistic play at its finest.
July 20th's Armando cast includes:
Jill Eickmann (Leela's Artistic Director, Shades of Grey)
Anastasia Elizondo-Lossow (Oui Be Negroes, Black and Tan)
Rachel Hamilton (The Second City, The Magnet, Razowsky & Hamilton)
Claire Slattery (Stanford Improvisors, Robot Butler)
Daniel Smith (Knights of Revery, Backpack)
Jamie Wright (Executive Producer of The San Francisco Improv Festival, Crisis Hopkins)
