One nice thing that came out of the pandemic for me was getting to work with people in other parts of the country and around the world on the web. In November, Pedro Abrantes and I started doing long-form duo improv show via StreamYard to YouTube. I met Pedro, who is based in Toronto, in improv classes last year that were taught by Lisa Merchant and Ian Keeling. The show is called Pedro & Chris. We perform a new show each Monday.
We do about 25 or so minutes of improv and then chat for another 10 minutes. We’ve done several shows so far. Each one is a little different. We might play the same characters the whole time or switch characters. Sometimes it’s funny. Other times, it is not. Like life. Our plan is to invite guests in the spring after we have a number of shows under our belt.
