E-mail Print

It was improv night at Henotic, Jan. 15. They brought in Roman Danylo, the star of Comedy Inc. on the Comedy Channel as well as was the referee for  the comedy channel’s  improv Olympics a few years ago and Dean Haglund, who used to be on the X-Files  TV show and has also performed with Second City and the Groundlings, to entertain an enthusiastic  audience with an hour or so of quick witted improv comedy.Roman Danylo and Dean Haglund entertained Henotic with  improv games.

They included the audience in a couple of games including sound effects during which they brought up an audience  member on stage to make sound effects for a scene they were acting and  another where the audience member had to move the actors according to their dialogue.

They had a lot of really funny bits. In one, Roman got sent out into the cold  for a game called criminal, during which  the audience  chose a scene for him to guess with the help of Haglund’s hints.

After a bit of prodding from Haglund and applause from the audience, he eventually guessed he was supposed tothe David harmon Experience at Henotic.

They also performed the  film styles  improv game, during which they re-enacted the same scene (returning a video) in  several different movie styles including a final scene  combining documentary/ porn and horror, which was weird but effective.

Upstairs, The David Harmon experience was playing an assortment of  hard rock covers including a very cool version of Kiss’s “Domino.”
