Blind Date Improv
Time: 8:00pm - 9:00pm
Hi! It's me, Brie Watson. Maybe you've seen me around, maybe you haven't. Either way, I do improv, just like you! Thing is, I want to do it more, and not just in a classroom setting and not always with the same people (even though all the people in my improv classes have been absolutely fantastically wonderful.)
If you're like me, you love improv and you want to be challenged, you want to learn more about your craft, and you want to do it as much as possible.
So, I came up with something called "Blind Date Improv.? It's not an online dating app, don't worry. It's an improv show in which ANYBODY can participate. All. Levels. Of. Experience.
Here's how it works:
I will pick pairs of improvisers to perform a 7-10 minutes set. The fun part? You will have NO IDEA who you're being matched up with until it actually happens. The even MORE fun part, you might get matched with one of our special guest improvisors! Someone who's been on the scene a while, maybe even performed on the Second City Mainstage, maybe even appeared on your television screen at some point or another! WHO KNOWS? Or, it may be someone who's new to performing improv, and who is looking to you to get more practise and experience, to feed off your experience and expertise to craft an enjoyable and memorable performance experience. OR, you could be matched with your future-duo-partner for life. The beauty here is to embrace the unknown, to go with it, and to have a blast.
If this interests you, here's what you have to do.
Show up to Comedy Bar on Saturday, August 30th between 7:45 and 8pm.
Put your name down on a piece of paper (provided)
If the night goes well, who knows, maybe we can start doing it every month?
Either way, my hope is you will come, enjoy and take this as an opportunity to develop as an improviser. That's what I hope will happen to me too!
Yours in spontaneity,
