In an upcoming episode of Pivot’s new improv comedy show “Freestyle Love Supreme,” Utkarsh Ambudkar has to make up a 60-second rap on a topic of an audience member’s choosing on the spot. Luckily, he’s offered something he’s very familiar with.
In this exclusive clip (above), Ambudkar, who also goes by the stage name UTK the INC, is asked to freestyle rap about Freestyle Love Supreme — the rap group the show is named after. According to UTK’s rap, several group members had history together already when he was at New York University, but the stars finally aligned in 2005 or 2006 when they saw him performing and happened to need a replacement.
“Freestyle Love Supreme,” starring the members of the group, is an improvised musical comedy show, which mixes fully improvised stage shows with impromptu, real-world sketches set in New York City to create a unique comedy with no script.
“Freestyle Love Supreme” debuts on Pivot on Oct. 17.
