Physics in Unexpected Places: An Improvised 20x20 Talk

PRESENTED ON NOV 22, 2018
IN WINNIPEG @ VOL 36

PechaKucha Night Winnipeg challenged improviser Caity Curtis to perform an improvised 20x20 talk, with no prior knowledge of the slides that would project on stage. Before she started, Caity asked for a suggestion from the audience for a topic to frame her talk and chose the subject of "physics". Watch (and laugh) as Caity quickly tries to weave together a compelling talk about physics to the random selection of images put together by the PKN Winnipeg organizing team.

Caity's talk was recorded live at PechaKucha Night Winnipeg Vol. 36, on November 22 2018, at the Park Theatre.

Improv Madness: Looking into the Future of a Donald Trump Presidency

BY JESS SCHUKNECHT
@ 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, "Looking into the Future of a Donald Trump Presidency." Hilarity ensued.

Jess Schuknecht began studying and performing improv in 1997. Soon after, his face did ‘get stuck that way’ just as his mother had always warned him it would. Using what some may call a disability to his advantage  he found making people laugh and teaching people improv was right up his alley, very literally. He did live and teach in an alley-way for several years. Fortunately by 2004 he became a founding member of Atlas Improv Company and lives in a house now, though he does visit the alley on occasion to stay in touch with his roots.
