After every “Untitled Space Western” show we needed more Whedon so Jordan T. Maxwell decided to put together the “Joss Whedon Pajama Party”, basically a variety show with songs, sketch, improv, and other things. It was a ton of fun and we got free cereal every night!
Video of the final performance of our Live Musical version of the “Our Mrs. Reynolds” episode of
Firefly Untitled Space Western (original name omitted due to copyright claims from FOX). This was one of the best final shows I’ve ever been a part of (I played drums) and much of the dialog was improvised, leading to a usual 40 minute show to be an hour and 20 minutes.
Video of my first scripted show at The Institution Theatre. This was a great two months spent with some amazing people.
DISCLAIMER: I am a novice improviser, I have only been training in improv for 6 months or so. I do not claim to be an expert and I will probably get some facts wrong on this blog. Please bear with me and if you see something incorrect let me know so I can fix it, and learn.
Welcome to Improv Throwdown. This blog will basically consist of my musings on my travels through the crazy world of learning and performing Improvised Comedy. I’ll put up thoughts on classes, things that we learned in my classes, and let you know about upcoming performances and such. I might even post some sketches that I write and what not, but we’ll see.
Just a little info. I’m currently a Level 3 (almost Level 4) improv student at Coldtowne Theater in Austin, TX. I don’t pretend to be an expert on improv but I am completely obsessed with all forms of improv comedy (as well as sketch).
Just a disclaimer: anything posted on this blog is my opinion and my opinion only, I do not represent Coldtowne Theater or any other entity with which I perform or attend (does that make sense?)
Sorry this first post isn’t that funny, I promise to fix that to the best of my ability.
Well that’s it, post #1 is down, more to come soon.
