What sets The Maydays apart from other comedy improv groups is that you can tell it is completely made up, not over rehearsed sickly slick performances with improv shoe-horned in. ‘Confessions’ are provided by the audience just prior to the start of the show. The troupe then perform the secrets in a make-shift confessional and improvise a couple of scenes, either directly imitating the confession or ripping on a theme. Sure, some fail to get going (by no means all) but at least you know it’s honest and you can see them struggle which is endearing. First class improv-comedy.
