Improv in the Arcade is on again in Parramatta!
Like improv? Love shows like 'Whose Line Is It Anyway'? Looking for something to do on a Friday night in July?
Then come along! Get your tickets HERE!
A quick firing, improvised comedy show, all inspired from YOUR suggestions, IMPROV IN THE ARCADE is part of the Parramatta Pop-Up initiative.
The other day I was hanging out with a few friends and we ended talking about how I speak to cashiers, service attendants, etc by their name on their tag. This is apparently not a normal thing to do, even though I end up getting favourable service most times.
"Why would you do that? Just get your stuff, pay and go. They're just doing their job", it was said.
Busy, busy! For an improv business, I'm doing a lot of planning including drafting up the lesson plans. ;)
Just a quick note that there are now After School Improv Classes for teens aged between 13 to 15 years old from 4pm to 6pm in 50 minute blocks starting from Wednesday 17 July 2013 each week. Price? $17 including GST for each block.
Also, the 10 week improv newbie improv classes have been reduced down to 8 weeks to allow people to take the Labour Day week off with family should they so wish. :)
More details can be found on the BOOKING page.
And with that, 'exit, stage left'!
No, this doesn't have to do with the record beating 69 hotdogs being consumed in the US. Rather, I volunteered as the Master of Ceremonies for the 'Hot Dog Eating Contest' at Westfield Mount Druitt for their Give Ability Day (for Lifestart Nepean) as they needed someone who could improvise in a sports-commentator way. You should have seen how the contestants ate all those hotdogs...! They had different strategies and I was thinking how that reflected each of their personalities and how they tackle life, just like playing any game shows one's true personality once they get into it.
These were the personality tactics I observed:
I've managed to setup the booking application for the Bite-sized Brain Boosters for Improv (30 minute lessons to fit in your lunch break) and the 10 Week Improv Class for Newbies (2 hour long each week so you don't have to pay for parking)! You can secure your spot on the BOOKINGS page, but what are the courses in a nut-shell?
