Fisticuffs:

 In the red corner, weighing a combined weight of 700 pounds… this bare-knuckle bruiser hails from Washington, DC! He’s hooked in crowds throughout the nation’s capital, as well as at the Chicago Improv Festival, the Del Close Marathon, and the Philadelphia Improv Festival! With nearly 40 matches under his belt – 37 of which were TKOs, one tie, and two that tapped out in the third beat – this southpaw and former Washington Improv Theater Harold Team turned independent heavyweight has got a curl in his mustache, a hop in his step, and a left hook that beats the punchline into you! The one, the only – FISTICUFFS!

In the blue corner, weighing a figurative weight of 3 beats… the Harold! Who will win? Who will take home the ultimate prize? Del Close’s seminal improvisational format or whatever’s left of it after Fisticuffs is through? Adjust your monocle, fasten your garter belt, and bet your bottom dollar on this punchy pugilist whose dukes will give you a run for your money!
