Good improv — the kind that has an almost seamless quality as it rolls from one scene to the next— is a long-haul proposition. It can take years for performers to really settle into a groove together. And then before you know it, one person after another scatters to the wilds of Los Angeles or elsewhere to pursue more lucrative work in TV and film. That sweet spot in between — when an improv team is just seasoned enough to leverage its internal chemistry, but not restless enough to skip town just yet — is where Switch Committee currently resides. The five-man group, in their shirts and ties, has the right kind of playful but down-to-business approach. – Nina Metz

The team’s personal history really works for them — they let the scene build and really go for it with each other… Switch Committee is going to be a great summer treat, just don’t be crazy and wait too long to see them. – Tyler Gillespie

Life’s a Funny Scene

This team is dynamite and fearless. They have strong initiations and great listening and agreement. Their commitment to risky, physical choices is a true breath of fresh air. There was never a dull moment with these guys. I was sold after their opening scene…So go see for yourselves, you can thank me later. –  Kiley Peters

Causing a Scene

Don’t drop anything’ is what many improvers hear often and Switch Committee has proven to be the master of this rule. Each show is full of emotional characters and beautiful  physical play as their scenes tie together with mind-blowing connections by recycling every ounce of information… It only takes one show to make you want to   be best friends with each of them. – Kristi McKay
