One of the downsides to taking classes three days a week (with a show every week too) is that some things get dropped – this blog is one of them. The upside: loads of new stuff coming soon!
I’m back on stage tonight as part of Under the Gun Theater’s Sunday Improv Showcase. 6pm tonight, 956 W Newport St, Chicago. Entry is free.
Was at a show tonight that had some technical issues (piano didn’t work), so they played an interim game of freeze tag. What I loved was the ask-for. “Can we please have an activity that humans can easily do but dogs cannot?” Instantly the players were in physicalities that were identifiable to the audience and into the game. Very clever.
It was time to change it up! I’ve switched to the Scrawl theme to make things more readable, especially if you’re on a mobile device. Link posts appear in grey with an arrow on the end, with original posts in blue. There are little category images below each post, like the book icon for notes or speaker for podcasts. And it was time to introduce a new logo as well – goodbye business man, hello improv man running to make a tag out!
Everything should be working fine, and links to the Resources page or Random link are now hidden behind the hamburger menu (that orange three lined button in the top right corner) if you’re looking for them. But if anything appears to be broken, hit me up via the Contact Form.
If you like nerdy in-depth discussions of what improv is supposed to be, Pack Improv with Miles Stroth is your podcast. Also, at 30 minutes an episode it’s an easy listen.
