This festival season features Rik Brown's format Stuck In The Middle. One improvisor remains on stage, taking whatever offers the auxiliary players give them. The first time I saw this format last year, I was stunned. Only the best, experienced, most quick-witted improvisor will survive this brutal marathon of different scenes. Tonight's performance saw seasoned improvisor/stand-up Cal Wilson in the spotlight. She took on some of Melbourne's best and triumphed. More often than not, she threw mischief right back at them.
While the concept seems punishing, the players never torment their guests. A light-hearted way to end your evening.
