ICM Presents: The Thanksgiving Show!

The Adult Table vs. The Kids Table

Once a month, your Indie Cage Match hosts Brief Dragon step outside of their medieval garb and put on a thematic show pitting classic rivals against each other.

This Thanksgiving weekend, witness the ultimate battle between the two most powerful holiday gangs: The Adult Table vs. The Kids Table.

Who can get more wild? The adults who drink red wine and talk politics? Or the kids who can Snapchat with their eyes closed and play truth or dare after dessert?

YOU decide. Come out and vote for the table you side with (and sit with) in this rowdy Thanksgiving improv battle.

Who are YOU most thankful for?

A hero will be chosen.
A champion will be crowned.
Come witness the epic battle of indie improv glory.

Each week, two indie improv teams face off. The winning team will return the following week to defend their title. After three victories, they journey to face the ultimate beast: Cage Match at UCBT Hell's Kitchen.

Hosted by Brief Dragon (Max Brand, Brielle DeMirjian, Dani Grace, John Sartori, Brandon Zelman).
