Oscar-winner Jim Rash (and Dean Pelton on Community) to host the Armando this Saturday

Improviser, actor, comedian, writer and producer Jim Rash is slated to host this Saturday's Armando.

Surely, being a storyteller of Oscar proportions and being an active Community member, he will have salient stories to share that will no-doubt inspire this week's troupe of veteran improvisers.

What is "Armando" you ask?

The Armando Show is a 90-minute long improvised comedy show inspired by an audience suggestion. The visiting host riffs off of the audience suggestion via a true, autobiographical monologue. 

The troupe of Chicago and Los Angeles iO alum perform scenes that, in turn, inspire a response from the visiting Armando. 

Why should you see the Armando?

LA Times reviewer F. Kathleen Foley describes the event, " …This free-associative repetition melds into Zen-like flights of fancy…." 

And who doesn't enjoy Zen-like flights of fancy?
