Cup was a ColdTowne Student Troupe.
Their press blurb, taken from a 2012 application to perform at The Hideout Theatre:
Cup is a group of ColdTowne-trained improvisers who work in an Armando style format. We're all very friendly and have a nice time. We went camping together once. Ask us about the electric fence.
"What's Your Deal?"
Their answer to the "What's Your Deal?" question on a 2012 application to perform at The Hideout Theatre:
Currently, we're performing a loose Armando. We gather on stage at the top of the show, ask for a suggestion, and someone steps forward to tell a relevant story. When the story ends, we call for the lights, and then we essentially montage, using the story/conversation as our source scene. We try to keep all scenes within the same town or similar space, and a narrative structure emerges between scenes more often than not.
