“Musical Improv” describes a type of improvisational comedy where the performers create songs on the spot. It involves spontaneous singing, music, and lyrics created on the spot, often intentionally funny combining elements of comedy and theater. The musicians and comedians showcase a unique musical each time they take the stage. All songs are created based on suggestions from the audience, showing that it’s unrehearsed and unplanned with off-the-cuff melodies and lyrics.
