Political Show by the UW!

The hottest political comedy show in Seattle, Election Show 2004, has been accepted to as a Mainstage performer at the 2005 Miami Improv Festival and as a Featured Act at the 2005 DC Comedy Fest!

To raise money to send the cast we’re having two encore performances! Here’s the lowdown:

What is Election Show 2004: Election Show 2004 is a completely improvised election where your vote decides the winner! Follow the candidates though a brutal primary, debates, attack ads and scandals all based on audience suggestions! Who will win: The upstart challenger or the incumbent president? Your vote can make the difference!

Plus, the show features no real politics or political issues (no war, taxes, etc.)! We use fake candidates, fake issues, fake political parties and our candidate's platforms are chosen by the audience. If one candidate promises to shorten the workday from 8 hours to 4 while the other promises to create a new branch of the military comprised entirely of ninjas, the people's will rules.
