I’ll Take The Physical Challenge

 Improv + torture. Improv + pain. Improv + slime.


Saturdays in September and October, The Hideout presents “I’ll Take The Physical Challenge”, a game-show style improv show in which the improvisors are mentally and physically pushed to their limits just to see what happens.

“I’ll Take The Physical Challenge” is inspired by 1980s Nickelodeon staple “Double Dare” and Japanese game shows like “Gaku No Tsukai”. Each show, two teams will compete for supremacy, enduring the “I’ll Take The Physical Challenge” game masters’ master list of devious games. Over the course of the show, the performers will be worn down emotionally until the finale when one team will be declared champion of the show.

Come for the torture, stay for the slime.

Saturdays at 8pm, September 10th – November 5th
