Exclusive Video: Peek Inside Derek Mears' Improv Group, The Resistance
A comedy improv troupe. Here on FEARNET? Yes, for realsies. When it is headed up by Derek Mears, damn straight we want to know what is going on. FEARNET readers will know Derek best as Jason Voorhees from the 2009 Friday the 13th remake - or any one of a number of monster roles in films and TV shows like Sleepy Hollow, The Hills Have Eyes II, and Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters. But he is a classically trained improv comedian who performs with a Los Angeles group called The Resistance.
Describing themselves as the "man band for improv," The Resistance takes suggestions from the audience, then launch into an hour-long improvised action movie based on the suggestions. The night FEARNET visited they performed a creature feature starring an eeltopus (played by a jump rope).
