8 Entirely Improvised Stand-Up Sets

In the back of Meltdown Comics in Los Angeles, comedians are s***ing their pants. That’s because Nerdist’s web series Set List asks stand-up comics to improvise an entire 5 minutes of material based on prompts they’ve never seen. This is the show where everything’s made up and the punch lines do matter. Here are 8 entirely improvised stand-up sets:


Robin Williams: The Introvert Dictator

Oh man, Jesus is still alive? This party is so over.


Dana Gould: Star Wars Prequel Prequel Prequel Prequel Episode III

There is a pelican fighting a hang glider in the anniversary blu-ray.


Bob Odenkirk: Stealing Wheelchairs

I think we’ve all done that with sheep, or at the very least, goats.


TJ Miller: Tickling & World Peace

Yeah, moms can be just as sexy on Twitter as non-moms. Don’t hate.


Jon Dore: I Spy For The Chinese

Best volunteer ever.


Moshe Kasher: Sleeping With The Elderly

Poppin’ bones, slippin’ into wrinkles. You know, gangsta old people sex.


Todd Glass: Women Should Not Have Rights

I like that Todd Glass feels no obligation to the premise of the series.


Drew Carey: Fortune Crack

Can you guess the price of fortune crack without going over?
