A Eurovision Song Contest relic about a little girl’s pet guinea pig, or a Kaurismäki-esque scene from a samba carnival? In this show, anything is possible – when the script is thrown out the window and today’s top stars of improv take over the studio. And rules are that nothing can be shut down, instead the only answer that’s ever allowed is “yes!”.
The familiar faces of the Comedy Combat threesome of Ernest Lawson, Mikko Penttilä, and Roope Salminen now usher in the new age of TV improv, along with young but supremely talented improv veteran Veera Lehtinen. Setting the musical backdrop to this exciting new show is improvisational pianist whiz Suvimarja Halmetoja. In addition to the series regulars, the show will also feature a surprise guest each week, and the rest of the cast has no idea who it is. The improvisational extravaganza that is Don’t Freeze! is hosted by Ernest Lawson.
