Last Week of Improv
I’m still hoping maybe I can get a semi-regular gig, but who knows?
Anyway, in tonight’s practice, we ran through what the actual show would be like – what games to start, what games would be played, who is on each team – that sort of thing. I could ruin it for you and tell you the order, but you’ll just have to come and see it for yourselves. Anyone unable to make it will be able to read the list here after the fact ;)
I like the way the teams got split. As mentioned earlier, we don’t have enough people in the class, so we’re having three of the regular performers join us. The team I’m on will get one and the other team will get two. While the temptation is to think “Oh, they’ll have an advantage because they have two regulars,” that misses a couple of important points: a) We’re not trying to win, we’re just trying to put on a good show. b) We haven’t worked with these people beofre, so we’re not familiar with them. That can make a difference. c) Maybe the regular people aren’t that good, either.
Apparently I was kind of cranky when I went to practice this evening. Our leader kept saying things like “Did you miss your therapy session today?” But it was all funny, so it worked out okay.
I still don’t feel quite “on,” so I’m interested to see how things go on Saturday.
I also don’t know if there will be a taping yet, so I don’t know if I’ll be able to post any video. We’ll know on Saturday, I guess!
