Showtime Networks has uploaded an uncut version of UCB improv special “HOUSE OF LIES LIVE!” The show, which also airs on television on New Years Eve at 10pm on Showtime, features House of Lies cast members Don Cheadle, Kristen Bell, Ben Schwartz, Josh Lawson, Lauren Lapkus, Eugene Cordero and Ryan Gaul performing long form improv at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre in LA. This is a treat for fans of the series whom are anticipating its third season premiere, January 12th on Showtime.
For those of you who have never seen long form before- the group begins by getting a random suggestion from the audience, they then use the suggestion as a springboard to MAKE UP AN ENTIRE SHOW ON THE SPOT. Nothing is planned beforehand. Every word is created right there, which is hard enough for seasoned improvisers, let alone these amazing actors who were daring enough to try it out for the first time on national television.
