Improv Jam: Thursday 1 October 2015

This week’s jam: Crying For No Reason

This week’s improv jam is brought to you by: Parky, the letter C and the number 8Convince

A lot of the improv we do is for laughs (not all of it though – you know who you are. Honk). However, for me, getting an audience to really care about the characters on stage is as least as important as getting them to laugh. Getting a chuckle at the end of the scene is great but getting an ‘aaaah’ or tears is easily as good.

For a part of this week’s jam – only a part, mind – I want you to concentrate on playing it straight. So, you’re going to improvise some scenes but you’re going to do them as a drama, and not for laughs. The aim is to ‘yes, and’, play the scene as real as possible and avoid those silly puns and weird observances that we rely on for titters.

Then, if we have time, we’ll do daft stuff for cheap laughs. Boom.
