Improv Comedy Battle vs. Too Soon?
On 28 May 2015, two of Prague's English-speaking improv comedy groups faced off in a good ol' fashioned knock-'em-down, drag-it-out fracas of the funny in front of an overflow crowd at Trick Bar in Malostranská Beseda. In the end, Blood, Love & Rhetoric defeated Too Soon? imPRAGUEisation, although one could also argue that improv comedy was the real winner.

Blood, Love & Rhetoric is tasked with completing a scene before Mark Fitzhenry (playing with Too Soon?) finishes his beer ...
... and is up to the task as Kiro Nushev ends the scene as a singing pig who becomes famous.

Joy and relief as Blood, Love & Rhetoric is declared the winner ...
... for which Brian wants to bask in his share of the glory ...
... before he is justifiably pushed away.
