SPLIT SECOND IMPROV SEASON 16
Back for another great season in a brand new venue.
Split Second Improv brings the best in live short form improv comedy to eastside audiences!

If you are new to live improv or you've been coming to our shows for years, it doesn't matter because you'll never see the same show twice. Why? Because YOU craft our show. All of our scenes are based on audience suggestion. But wait...there's more! Every show is a competition pitting two teams of the best improvisers around against each other for your entertainment. Winners determined by the audience applause. Tell your friends...tell your family...and then bring them along to Split Second Improv at the SecondStory Hideaway in the Redmond Town Center!

Bring the whole family along for our "Sweet Saturdays at Seven" when all of the actions is PG or join us Saturday night at 9pm for the wildly popular "Split Second Blue Show" where anything can happen.

MEET ROBERT BOGUE:
Artistic Director of Split Second Improv

1. When did you first become interested in theater?

ROBERT: I have been performing since the age of 5, I studied theater in high school in my home state of Utah and attended college at Southern Utah University where I received a BS in theater arts and dance.

2. Were you cast in any of SecondStory’s productions before you became Artistic Director for Split Second Improv?

ROBERT: I have been performing and directing at SSR since the 3rd season. I have also served as box office manager, writer, scenic designer, and artistic associate.

3.  In your opinion, what is the key to becoming successful in this industry of the Arts?

ROBERT: Success in the Arts is relative. If you measure success by money in the bank, you could work your whole life and never be as successful as some lucky sole who was in the right place at the right time. If you are able to make your art and that is what makes you happy, I would say that you are successful. Not too many people can say that. Unfortunately the term "starving artist" is more truth than fiction. My advice is you may not be the best but you need to always do your best.

4. Tell us a bit about Split Second Improv. What does it mean and who is involved?

ROBERT: Split Second improv is a mixture of some of the best improvisers and actors from around the region. We have a wonderful variety of talent, skill level as well as age. We have improvisers who have been performing for many years with teams from Seattle as well as other states, and we have players who bring fresh new talent and perspective. The best thing about improv is that you truly never know what is going to happen. Each and every show is based on audience suggestion, and since no audience is the same, no show is the same. It is a truly unique experience. Improv really is acting in its purest form. Characters evolve right in front of the audience. Very real.

5. What makes SSR an outstanding theater in Redmond?

ROBERT: I think that SSR is outstanding because of the variety of theater that we bring to Redmond. So many theaters give the audience one type of experience or another, but audiences at SSR can enjoy comedies, musicals, dramas, improv, theater for young audiences, live musicians and SSR even brings education to the community through our classes. We are a professional theater that isn't limited by genre.

6. If not theater, what would you be doing?

ROBERT: No matter where I go, the arts will always be a part of my life. I am fortunate to share this passion with my children who are wonderful artists, and have even assisted me with my directing duties on more than one occasion. No matter what form it takes, as long as I have art, I am happy.
