Improv Madness: What I Learned from My Time Travels
BY EDMOND RAMLY
@ VOL 17
ON APR 14, 2016
Improv Madness: Comedians from 2 local Improv Troops made 20x20 presentations for each other. The audience suggested the topic, in this case, "What I Learned from My Time Travels." Hilarity ensued.
Edmond Ramly born in Beirut, he grew up hearing fantastical stories of a place where the streets were paved with cheese. He decided early on to leave behind the Mediterranean climate of year-round comfortable mild weather and feta scented breezes to travel to the harsh and godforsaken land of Wisconsin where cheddar was the only currency. It was here he realized that tragedy + cheese = comedy at which point he joined Atlas Improve Company by winning the gladiator-style laugh-to-the-death called “The Cut” in 2013. Edmond is still working to improve his usage and pronunciation of common Wisconsin flavored idioms “Youbettcha,” “Oh den dare now” and “Whachagonna do?”
