It’s been a big week.
Doug and Robo, from North Coast, sat down to discuss all things hip hop and improv with the Village Voice! The interview came out awesome and we are honored to be in it.
There seems to be a lot of parallels between the worlds of freestyle rapping and improv comedy, so it shouldn’t be that surprising that hip-hop improv troupe North Coast is thriving. Recently celebrating five years together, North Coast have spent their summer doing their brand of musical improv across the country, as well as every Saturday night at The Pit, which has just been extended through September. We spoke to two of the group’s founding members, James T. Robilotta and Douglas Widick, about bringing freestyle rhymes into the realm of improv and how they’ve kept their style so fresh.
