Review How To Be The Greatest Improviser On Earth

Will Hines ã 9 Free download How To Be The Greatest Improviser On Earth Review å 9 D topics like being truly present being authentic dealing with difficult performers 45 This book offers advice to the intermediateadvanced improviser The same flavor of UCB right and wrong but provides nuances and dimensions to the many improv mantras The importance of not planning ahead but of making assumptions about the current momentp17 always assume something is happening When someone says hi it s never just hi You shrink your scope down Instead of thinking head 22 minutes or even two minutes you look around you at the current moment ou turn into a Sherlock Holmes of observing the present instant You re constantly waking up into worlds that already exist and trying to fake it Know care sayp 67 Find the love No matter how dry an audition piece seemsyou can find the love between the characters Even if it s angry that anger comes from love It s on the actor to find it This applies to the start of improv scenes No matter what the situation find a reason to care about what s going on in it Justification knowing the real why Good justification isn t inventedfabricrated it s come from digging deep and looking for real reasons behind the feelings that drive your reactions You re looking for real personal grounded answers to why your character feels the way they do p 111 In improv you re often doing something before you really know why you re doing it This is if you re doing it right You react and now you ve done something That s great The next step is realizing why you re doing something the real natural why that s inside of you not the one you think you should have I saw a two person class scene where one person said I want to run with the bulls in Spain The other person had this instictince reaction and responded with just a tiny bit of disgust Ugh not that I stopped the scene and said I love that Why don t you want to run with the bulls And the student felt guilty that he has said no and corrected himself I mean I love running with the bulls I said No I didn t want you to change your min It s okay you didn t like it I just wanted to know why your character didn t like it Then the student thought about it too much He tried to create a big improvably backstory to explain his actions Maybe my father was killed by bulls No I said That s no the reason You had a reason there s something you didn t like about the idea off a gut level I m just asking what that reason was The one you already had And then he remembered what it felt like the moment he answered and he said Because running with the bulls is something that jerks do The was it That s the real reason That the type of reason an audience can sense and will laugh at when they see you realize and articulate it You say Ugh not that and then follow up with Don t be such a a frat gut Don t try to be so tough It s your real grounded answer When you have an instinctual visceral reaction to something it s probably the honest and true one You just have to say what that honest reaction is Being able to stop hold and articular you r natural feelings is a hugely necessary skill in improv Be funnysurprise to big A to C s off of suggestionsIronicopposite ideas are funny as long as they are still saying yes to the scene Undermine the expectation while keeping the facts true p 139 I saw a scene where the suggestion was vegetarian to start Chris Gethard stepped off the back line and mimed heaving a bucket of paint on someone while saying Fur is murder That right there is pretty funny It s surprising in a satisfying way Instead of an obvious start off of vegetarian like just sitting down to dinner he made the A to C leap to make a scene about someone protesting animal rights Surprise fit The response to this initiation from Zach Woods was even better C mon This is a gorilla suit That player said yes to the fact that he is wearing the silliest most harmless kind of fur you could think of be able to name the funny thing simplyp 156 strategies for this What IF Title the game with a what if What if the top cliue at a high school were scientists This makes you isolate the funny part Instead OF say instead of to clarify A version of the s how Cops but instead of domestic violence and drug deals they bust people who play sex games This forces you say the normal version which makes funny part pop AS IF This is direction for the performers A guy who tries to wow his date with a fried egg as if it were caviar or champagne It also shows you how to play the funny part Play the gm trainer talking to her client as if you are a jealous girlfriend be ironic behave in the opposite way that people would expect Living healthytalking about living healthily as an improviser and dealing with ruts He talks about some serious self defeating shit going on in his head after a decent show then reflects on it p 179 When I feel like I did that night I often think of times that I ve heard people who I think are great express their doubt in themselves I think This person is crazy they re really good They have some weird self0defeating thing going on that they re giving into When I think of that then I can easily cast off my own self defeatism Someone else would look at me and thin I m crazy for feeling discourages so I put this here to make you forget your own self defeatism It happen stop everyone it s mostly pointless On haroldssecond beats should repeat and expand the weird philosophy from the first scene a good strategy is to expand the world If first beat marathon runner who insists he be allowed to bring a chair with him on his race then the word expands to a meeting of an athletic commission to figure the best way to test runners for chairs third beats don t plan or force the connection ideally they should surprise you expand the world of your scenes and the group will see a way to connect to the other scenes make lots of choice as if it s the first scene and you ll stumble on the branch to connect NamesGrab actual names from someone you knew in middle school p 201 On a think I think Tj and Dave doCharlie Sanders close eye move where you stand so your right eye is directly in from of the other son s left eye Whatever this is I like the idea of standing off center from one another It s a subtle almost intangible yet evocative spin similar to the boogly eyes in Rick and Morty Life and ambitionp 204 In a creative life you don t always think What will this get me later You think What can I do now that is fun Yes and p 207 There is a voice in my head that whispers This improv that makes you happy is a waste of your time That voice is the enemy Comparing yourself against the barometer of commercial success can be important to do as a motivator but it isn t the only measure of success Spend your days in love with what you re doing as much as possible and thank the start for your chances to do that If something is fun and enticing you are victorious You should keep doing that If you re a zombie and going through the motions it s time to move on
