KIRBY HEYBORNE BRINGS IMPROV TROUPE TO LAYTON AMPHITHEATER
Story by Linda East Brady , Standard-Examiner staff - Jul 18 2012 - 8:43am

Kirby Heyborne has already established himself as an actor, with star turns in movies like "The R.M." and "Saints and Soldiers." His is a voice that's familiar to many through his work narrating more than 150 books on tape, and from the five albums he has released as a musician.

But he's taken on the biggest challenge of his career since joining three others in the musical improvisational group The Society Improv Show. They are performing as part of the Davis Arts Council Summer Night With the Stars season on Saturday, July 21.

"It is one of the greatest aspects of acting, making stuff up as you go along," said Heyborne, a Wyoming-born, Utah-raised performer who now lives in Los Angeles. "There is no bigger thrill than getting onstage with an expectant audience, with no idea what you are going to do -- no safety net at all."

The Los Angeles-based foursome, which also includes Brigham Young University graduate Lincoln Hoppe, Californian Kelly Lohman and ex-Sandy resident Corbin Allred, do half of their show in similar fashion to the improv you see on "Whose Line Is It Anyway?" They take a name, a phrase, a concept, and create sketches from suggestions by the audience.

But they close the show with a full-on 45-minute comic musical, made up on the spot.

"Duets happen, beautiful choruses, choreography -- all of it by the seat of our pants," said Heyborne.

Hollywood Cage Match Champions!

Hollywood Cage Match Champions! 10-28-09

The Society is the current iO West Cage Match Champions 12 weeks running!

The Cage Match works like this: each week, two comedy groups battle it out to see who can win over the tough Hollywood crowd. Each group entertains the audience with 20 minutes of long-form improvised comedy; that’s 20 minutes of scenes made up on the spot based on an audience suggestion. The audience then votes on which group they prefer, and the winner returns the following week to take on a new challenger.

You can come watch for FREE and vote for the winner. We will do a 20 minute set of longform improv as will a challenger. We keep our set clean, yet we have no idea what the other group will do. Once again, the show is FREE, but you must be over 21 and bring an ID to enter. More info here: http://west.ioimprov.com/io/shows/100

The Society Cage Match Win 4
Cage Match Win -- The Society's win number 4.

Show Review - 5 Stars!

"If you share the opinion that good-time family fun and improv/stand-up comedy are not a good mix, you may be surprised. Personally, I found the Santa Clarita Improv show refreshing and unique.

"As soon as the lights dimmed, I was caught up in the infectious mayhem. Sight and sound gags abounded in a fast paced show that involved the audience at various levels, offering something for every age group, from the smallest of small, to teens, to adults.

"...the show alternately romped, surprised, amazed, and intrigued, but always, ALWAYS, it kept you laughing-not just the tiny snickers that can be hid easily in a handkerchief, but the sort of belly laughs that coax tears from your eye sockets. If you have a chance to see them, GO! And take the kids with you. You'll hear the humor echoing through your home for weeks to come (which is a sight more enjoyable that sibling bickering!)"

***** (five stars) Deen Ferrell VP, Curio Creative, LLC
