An improv comedy troupe from Nashville is taking their show on the road for the first time since forming early this year, and that trip is to make their local debut at Improv Chattanooga on Saturday night, Nov. 9.
Murder She Joked — the Nashville ensemble's name and style of comedy they present — is an improv show in the style of true-crime podcasts such as "Serial," "Dirty John" and "My Favorite Murder." Although newly formed, the Nashville comedians already won Show of the Year in the People's Choice Awards at Third Coast Comedy Club earlier this year, says Steven Disbrow, director of Improv Chattanooga.
Murder She Joked will perform a completely improvised true-crime-style show based on audience suggestions.

"We ask for three suggestions: 1. A first and last name. 2. A relationship. 3. An object. Any aspects of crime/mystery are fair game in the show," says Cortney Warner of Murder She Joked.
"We've done unsolved cases, solved cases, supernatural and gotten some pretty interesting suggestions during our time. The funniest one we've gotten was a clones for the relationship suggestion."
Warner says the Nashville improvisers stick to one storyline during their hour-long show, but they weave interviews, commercials and scenes throughout.
Joining Warner will be Nashville improvisers Dana Daniele, Libby Genz, Katy Hennen and Christina Reichert.
