Improv Breakfast w/ Chris Ulrich (Online)

Every Wednesday in May, from 7:45 a.m. to 8:35 a.m., a group of people get on a Zoom call for breakfast. Here's the catch: Everybody comes on as a character from the beginning of the call and never breaks character. The premise is that everybody knows each other, and conversation and banter stems from these relationships. The Zoom calls are the group's chance to check in and talk about the topics of the day. What happens from there is anybody's guess. The idea is inspired by Will Ferrell and Conan O’Brien talking about their comedic bits on the "Conan Needs a Friend" podcast. Conan O'Brien mentioned when he was doing bits on his late night show with Ferrell, seeing how Will committed to his characters made him commit even harder to the bit himself. The other reason to do this is a chance to start the morning with breakfast and play before the day takes over. Bring the eggs and we will see you there!

These events will be conducted online via video conferencing. Participants must have a reliable Internet connection and a computer or device with a webcam and microphone.
