Episode 281 - The Staves and the Telekinetic Dunk

Recommended Posts

Special musical guests The Staves join John Gemberling, Eugene Cordero, Shaun Diston, and Matt Besser for this week’s improv4humans. The Staves play songs that inspire scenes about a prison tattoo with terrible side effects, misunderstanding the concept of an Xbox, and a band that compliments every city but the one they’re playing in. Plus, John has a hard time getting his name spelled correctly at Starbucks, and telekinetic children push the boundaries of acceptable behavior.

Well, that was just one hell of an episode. The musical harmonies were genuinely lovely, several of the scenes were stone-cold fantastic (especially the Xbox, stage patter, and telekenisis scenes), and I always enjoy John Gemberling's proclivity for imbuing his characters with dark and nefarious intentions. Hell, there was even a god-damn post-credits sequence, for Christ's sake.

 

Not much more you could ask for.

One song in and I already started back over to hear it again. Besser has introduced me to more great music than anyone I have ever known.

During the first song I kept picturing a multi-camera videotaping of the podcast. The room was dimly lit and the camera would switch from the Staves singing looking angelic to zoomed in shots of Matty B and the other improvisers looking on captivated and just bobbing their heads softly. Maybe at one point Gemberling could be seen mouthing some lyrics.

Titsy Harry is the first recruit for the Improvengers.

 

Great ep all around, but one thing that especially killed me was Eugene's creepy kid voice during the witch school scene.
