Retired filmmaker George Lucas (as seen in the long-running cult comedy show, The George Lucas Talk Show) performs a partially interactive, fully improvised one-person theatrical experience using a digital avatar with help from analogue performer Connor Ratliff (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Dead Eyes podcast). Using a series of audience-generated suggestions – such as the word 'banana' or 'pineapple' – George will then invent and perform dramatic/comedic scenarios using only his imagination, his decades of experience as a professional storyteller plus everything he remembers from the two improv classes he took.
