The Ranting Llamas student improv group has been performing for three years. It presents that presents a unique comedy experience that is appropriate for all ages and outlooks. Comedy situations are made up on the spot and the audience is often incorporated into a scene. Sometimes a situation is suggested by the audience and the actors build off of it, which makes improv a fun for actors and non-actors alike. A simple word, action or an idea can be the basis of a skit performed by one member of the group or the entire ensemble – concepts like throwing snowballs, riding a bus, walking a dog or staying awake in class can all be become the basis for a comedy routine.
