Yes, Android is an improvised show about the intersection of human relationships and technology. And it's very funny.

The premise: one improviser will be our Android, receiving their dialogue from an artificial intelligence "chatbot". The rest of the cast must work around and justify the robot's responses, doing their best to make this Android feel like a human being. The results are simultaneously surprising, disturbing and hilarious.

Think Black Mirror, but with a happy ending.

Yes, Android is directed by Etan Muskat and is developed in collaboration with Edmonton based improviser Kory Mathewson (Rapid Fire Theatre) who has been working with AI and improv for several years. The show features Rob Baker, Tricia Black, Tim Blair, Tess Degenstein, Talal Itani, Mark Little, Kayla Lorette, Becky Johnson, Amy Matysio, Clare McConnell, Christian Smith and Hannah Spear.
