Improv Jam – 2 July 2015

This week’s jam: Big Hard DrillingDench Craig

This week’s jam is brought to you by: Lloydie

Fracking hell, it’s nearly jam time again and this Thursday we will be drilling some core skills designed to train our brains to listen, respond and spot fun, interesting things to play with in our scenes.

There will be some full-on warm up games to get us in the right brain space and then we will unleash ourselves into some scenes and some montages. It’s like one of those brain training games Judi Dench uses in that advert but done in a room without Judi Dench*. Come along and train your improv brain.

* Technically, as it’s a drop-in, Dame Judi could turn up so better be there just in case. You wouldn’t want to miss that!

Improv Jam – Thursday 25 June 2015

This week’s jam: Rope Weaving Live +1

This week’s jam is brought to you by: Parky

While everyone likes the freedom to do whatever their little heart desires in an open scene, there’s a reason why improv games are so enduringly popular. The restrictions often generate a laugh in themselves, and forcing people to act in certain ways is often intrinsically hilarious.

So, this week it’s all about the games. We’ll be playing some of the most popular shortform games – but we’ll be doing them right. We’ll be identifying what makes them work – and what doesn’t – and really drumming home the rules hard so everyone knows exactly how these games are intended to be played.

My index finger will be poised over the bell at all times, so expect guidance to get you back onto the fairway if you’ve strayed into the light rough. Ideally, of course, we want to reach the green in regulation and sink an eagle putt. I will stop the golfing metaphors now.
