Generally speaking, what can we do if we’re not having fun in improv? Well, we can examine the reasons. Was it just one bad show? Are we just having a bad streak? If that bad streak continues, then perhaps we need to examine deeper issues. Are we not playing in the right environment, with the right people, with the right format? Do we need to take a break? Due to the nature of improv, there are going to be off nights, shows which aren’t as fun, where we don’t get that high. But if it’s continually happening, then perhaps there is something greater at work that is worth thinking through.
Simply labeling someone a “stage hog” doesn’t label the problem. It places blame. Blaming slows everything down.
