Will we ever be able to put a price on what Improv Everywhere brings to New York City? I think not. All those delighted grins from passers-by, the wrinkled brow of comprehension as someone gets it and the atraight out laughs are all priceless. You are such a gift to the city as you skewer every New York City characteristic and pretension in just the right way to make it hilariously funny.
When they get it right, you get it so right and in this new video ‘The subway spa’ you get it exactly right. Is there a New Yorker who has not sweltered through the incredible heat on subway platforms at the height of summer? Or who has not then jumped on a train and expected to be greeted by the cool breeze of air-condtioning only to discover that it has broken down in THIS carriage, out of all the ones you could have picked.
And they don’t just get the send up of the hot subway platform just right, they get the whole spa thing preciousness right as well – the immacualtely rolled white towels, the spritzing, the hot stone massage and of course the exhausted slump in the ‘sauna’. Thank you, so very, very much Improv Everywhere you are New York City’s favorite comic geniuses and just keep on, keeping on and bringing delight into our lives.
