The Family Crest joins improvisers Jon Gabrus, Mary Holland, and Drew Spears for this week’s episode of improv4humans! The Family Crest plays a few of their favorite hits which inspire scenes about forgetting the army band, family troubles resulting from global warming, and the problem with hogging the mirror at the clothing store. Later, we meet a group of activists who put in the minimum effort possible and a traffic conductor gives preference to cars full of love.

This episode is great.

Holland, Gabrus, and Spears are hilarious and delightful.

The Family Crest are easily one of the best musical performances that have appeared on I4H. Their orchestrations are powerful, intricate, and original. Right after this post I am going to buy all of their music that I can find.

Thank you, Matt Besser, for introducing me to White Buffalo, Murder By Death, Radical Face, and The Family Crest.

Great improv, Great music, Great ep.

Matt was right about them "opening with stairway to heaven" that first song was amazing.

Great episode!
Did anyone else listen to The District S.F. back in the day? I was wondering if the singer from The Family Crest also sang in that band. Sounds just like him.

Holland being the associate narrator had me laughing so hard. Then the protest march bit... Why did that end so quick?! I was crying at my desk from laughing.
