Kevin Gillese and Arlen Konopaki: SCRATCH (Canada)
Two actors. Dozens of characters. Multiple storylines. No scripts. This fast-paced improve show has stunned audiences across America and Europe . You've never seen anything like it. Itching for something hilarious? Scratch
Scratch first fell from the heavens in a blaze of white light at the Edmonton Fringe festival in 2005. Originally featuring Stephen Kent and Arlen Konopaki (Kevin Gillese was the official swing member) the show was a hit. However when Steve was offered a dream gig out east at Stratford Kevin stepped forward to fill his handsome shoes. Since then Kevin and Arlen have been work-shopping the show, continuing to study improv with masters from around the planet and touring Scratch all over the country. Highlights so far include: stunning the stoners at Vancouver's International Improv Festival, getting NOW Magazine's Pick of the Fringe and EYE Magazine's Best of the Fringe in Toronto, and winning Improv Idol to be crowned champions of improv in Winnipeg.
