Gary Tro and Tom Livingston have picked the perfect subject for their improv show. The Marvel Cinematic Universe is a pop-culture behemoth with four places in the top-ten grossing movies of all time.

The format is simple; the audience get to shout out the star of the movie, a supporting character and a word to inspire the plot. The action them moves to the writer’s room where the foursome ‘pitch’ the movie – a fun onstage way of letting the cast decide what will ensue. Tro and Livingston are joined by two guest performers, today we have Dan Starkey and Laura Lexx. As ever with improv shows, it’s safe to tell you the plots as you’ll get a different show each time.

As well as all the crazy action, the cast are excellent with funny asides, fourth wall breaking, and using narration to move the story along quickly. Being able to declare “five minutes later” regularly gets them out of plot holes and helps keep the story charging along. Everyone is clearly having a great time and I laughed so hard at few of the antics on stage that I had to catch my breath. If you’re a fan of Marvel, you’ll be thrilled by this show. If you don’t know your Groot from your Drax, you’ll have a great time with the epic silliness of it all. Excelsior!
