Dad’s Garage, Atlanta’s oldest and finest purveyor of scripted and improvised live comedy, is back with its yearly dose of soapy suspense and intrigue. Scandal, a weekly improvised soap opera, takes the tragic excitement and larger than life characters of your favorite daytime dramas and throws in some signature Dad’s Garage improv comedy. And this year’s show injects some local inspiration into it’s setting. Scandal takes place in a 5-star hotel, “The Four Sleazins”, which has a basement strip club called “Danglerzzz,” where elderly male strippers shake their stuff on a nightly basis. If this reminds you of a certain infamous Ponce De Leon establishment, then you probably know what to expect.
Now, unlike a typical improv show, which resets the clock each week, Scandal will begin each performance by picking up right where it left off the week before, continuing the storyline just like a television soap opera! This means that as the weeks go by, the over-the-top characters will become even more exaggerated, the drama will reach new heights of absurdity, and most importantly, the jokes will get bigger and badder. Don’t worry, spectators will find it easy to fall into the story regardless of which show they attend, especially with the help of weekly recaps courtesy of the Atlanta Loop. But Scandal will certainly reward audience members who return for multiple episodes of its weird and wacky story. Plus, the show’s cast of stereotypical soap opera characters is comprised of the stellar Dad’s Garage mainstage improv ensemble, so each week will be filled to the brim with new laughs.
Scandal mixes the best elements of Dad’s Garage’s 21-year comedy history: absurd humor, wacky storytelling, unpredictable drama, and of course, a bunch of improvisers in thongs.
