The Shoves used to be Dillinger, a respected and popular Harold team of the time. But when Anthony King and Joe Wengert left to join/form Reuben Williams the remaining members chose to start over with a new name, as well as two new members, Bobby Moynihan and Angeliki George (who had been on Police Chief Rumble).
The Shoves quickly became a great team in their own right. They often gave their shows a theme and bent Harold structure to suit the suggestion. Part of this was from the influence of their long-time coach Peter Gwinn. They had very strong sound-and-movement / organic openings which would evolve into a form for their show.
The Shoves' opening was one of the most distinctive and exciting. Set to the song "D&K Cadence" from the film "Drum Line," two of the Shoves would do crossing cartwheels across the semi-dark multicolored blinking stage. At the song's climax the lights would come up full as the team entered and aggressively jumped around the stage.
Among memorable Shoves shows:
- a show which became more and more like a series of Arthur Miller plays.
- a show which took place entirely in the head of Risa.
- "sports" -- a show in which the group games showed the actors on a bench discussing the "game" (Harold).
- A Hitchcock show in which Tanouye spied on each scene with binoculars from a wheelchair a la "Rear Window."
- The Shoves for a period wore brightly-colored shirts and entered the stage doing cartwheels.
