November 19 th , Once Told Tales welcomes Carskee and Duvall Improv Social Club!
Carskee is a duo comprised of married couple, Erin Plischke and Jennifer Cargill. Carskee takes a single suggestion for
their show, exploring its meaning through distinctive characters, themes and unusual relationships. They have been
performing improv together for 24 years and their style is heavily influenced by their many years of training in Chicago
and their years of performing in Austin's eclectic improv scene.

Duval Improv Social Club is a group of Duvall locals drawn together by the love of improv and the joy of playing
together. Their chemistry is infectious and always gets the audience laughing.

November 26 th , Once Told Tales welcomes Book Club and One Handed Clap!
Book Club, Seattle's least self-aware, most wine-soaked, improv duo. “We meet after barre class but before Trevor has
to be picked up from lacrosse.”

Somewhere in the Nice part of town on a regular night, after their Barre classes and upscale juice crawls, a group of mid-
thirties adults gather for their once a month Book Club meeting. Tonight, though, only two women bothered to show up.
With no self-awareness, an entire bottle of wine, and an absolute lack of critical literary skills, these two must forge
onward and hold their book club meeting anyway.

One Handed Clap is an unscripted, on-the-spot improv experience that is entirely based on your suggestions. Your
magical journey includes thrilling stories and gut-busting laughs delivered by a team committed to making your
experience like nothing you've ever encountered before...or ever will again!

even teens from looking down at their phones. After the break, well take your ideas and make up a brand-new long-
form improv play right on the spot. Its 90 minute variety show of comedy that’s never predictable and will never be
