Never been to an improv show before? Us neither. But
here are a few things were heard from respectable troupes that should
help you enjoy the show to the fullest.
shout suggestions when the performers
ask for them.
shout them now. Youd just be yelling at your
challenge performers with weird suggestions,
obscure references and little-known characters.
be surprised if we just stand there as blankly
as Keanu Reeves looking at a physics textbook.
suggest all kinds of strange occupations.
bother yelling "prostitute" or "proctologist."
Its been done
almost every single show.
come early and get a good seat up close
(we dont harass people).
leave that seat during the show to go to the bathroom
(were looking at YOU, Shannon!). The shows only
an hour; youll make it.
shout suggestions as soon as you can (we
like to take the first one we hear whenever possible).
yell before you think; if we ask for an occupation
and you holler "tomato" guess what? Youve earned our unwavering
attention and abuse for the rest of the show.
shout out your funniest ideas.
blame us if youre the only one who thinks
that weird stuff is funny. Remember, if the scene sucks, its YOUR
FAULT, Bucko; try harder next time.
offer to buy us a beer after the show.
split before the bill arrives.
