Additional Booking Notes
Skinny Improv works best when can be clearly seen and heard. We are different than a band because of how involved the audience is in the show. Once a show is booked you will receive a technical and hospitality rider that outlines the best approach technically wise to make the show a success.
depending on the size of the room, lapel or countrymen style mics will work best.
usually a 12x12 area is best for us to perform in, and as long as they can clearly see us and hear us, it will work great
