    Thanks for coming and writing about our work.
    Improvisation is like sports. Its spontaneous and sometimes youre on your game and sometimes youre not. Sunday nights performance was a good performance. Maybe not brilliant. Alot of people had a good time in the theatre and thats always rewarding.
    Thanks for mentioning Will Cefalos work. His performance that evening was closest to the style of improvisational theatre Freestyle strives for.
    Thanks from me and Matty (were suckers for praise) but we would both agree our characters that night (his Marty Feldman/Igor to my Snidely Whiplash) were more cartoon than real.
    And humbly, I would contend that having a dog drag you by the head from a truck accident right into an explosion at a roadside gas station is an interesting way to die.
    Keep coming. Its different all the time.
