Awkward Threesome at Bats for Fringe

Press Release – Kickin Rad Productions

Kickin’ Rad Productions presents Awkward Threesome
What do two seasoned improvisors do to spice up their stage life? Bring in a third player…

This Fringe at BATS Theatre, Jennifer O’Sullivan and Matt Powell will have a newAwkward Threesome every night, performing an hour of fresh theatrical magic with a different mystery guest for each show. The catch? Nobody, except our specially-selected improv couples therapist, knows who the guests are until they walk out on stage.

“We’re so excited to meet our guest stars, even though we have no idea who’ll they’ll be,” says Powell. “Maybe they’ll be amazing improvisors. Maybe they won’t be, and we’ll have to teach them during the show. We won’t know until we meet them.”

With no scripts, plenty of joy, and internationally renowned improvisor Christine Brooks serving as improv couples therapist, Awkward Threesome is sure to give you that sense of sexy danger your comedy’s been missing. And remember, it’s sexy-fun, not sexy-sexy — yes, you can bring your mum!

“Mayhem and waywardness will definitely abound when the brain is sparking and the audience is encouraging.” — Theatreview (Jen and Matt in Duos, NZIF 2014)

Jennifer O’Sullivan has been called “Wellington’s most prolific improvisor”, performing with PlayShop, WIT, and Definitely Not Witches. She is the director of the New Zealand Improv Festival, is involved in probably too many Fringe shows, and is an all-round rad babe. jenniferosullivan.com
“…holds her own with sheer charm.” — Theatreview

Matt Powell is a recent import to the Wellington improv scene, having performed with Christchurch’s Court Jesters since 2002. This is kind of his first proper Fringe performance and it’s really exciting. His butt looks good in skinny jeans. fauxpar.se
“The suave Matt Powell cruises up to the mic… and boy does he nail it!” — Theatreview
