If Xcel Energy wants to increase prices or CenterPoint wants to build a new natural gas plant, they first need to a sign-off from the Public Utilities Commission. Two members of this quasi-judicial regulatory body join us to explain just what exactly they do, and why the public should be paying attention.

What is the show?

Described “As if C-SPAN were suddenly swarmed by the cast of SNL,” The Theater of Public Policy has garnered national media attention and fans for its unique blend of serious issues and improv comedy.

  • Shows open with a lively conversation with a newsmaker or policy wonk.

  • That conversation inspires a team of Minnesota’s most sharpest improvisers, who create entirely spontaneous sketches based on the interview.

  • The expert guest(s) then answers questions from the audience.

  • The show wraps with one last round of improv from the cast.
