Improv comedy has gotten easier to find in Atlanta in the past year, with new troupes like the Comedy Response Unit gaining momentum and old favorites like Whole World Theatre still selling out weekly. Dad's Garage, though, remains the local leader in terms of in-your-face attitude and sidesplitting originality. Consider the latest season of Scandal!
, the improvised soap opera that included inventive and outlandish characters like an Amish scientist on board a space station, a prim British android and a human-cow hybrid. The humor may be juvenile at times, but it's fresh and frantic enough to make you hope the guys at the Garage never grow up.
