Improv Jam – Thursday 29 October 2015

This week’s jam: Gender Swap

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


 

This week’s jam is simple – in every scene you will play a character of the opposite gender from you. This quote from Chicago Now  neatly covers what we are not doing this week – playing boring stereotypes of the opposite sex:

Guys Playing Dumb Girls: This move isn’t bad, just overused and I hear a lot of complaints about it. Yeah there are dumb people out there and some of them are women, but not all of them. A lot of improvisers play a negative view of the opposite sex. Women play “bros” who are womanizers and  men play “airheads” who need help with everything and are obsessed with boys. Yes, these characters are funny, but if you’re one of those people who only plays dumb when they’re playing a woman then you’re insulting half your audience. A guy or girl playing the opposite gender realistically also gets laughs.
