Years Active 2009-2010

Rise & Shine was an improvised morning talk show parody of Regis & Kelly and regional/local morning talk shows. Each episode took place in real time as if it were being recorded (a monoscene).

The cast played the same characters every time & invited a guest player to improvise a fictional celebrity.
