Ladies and gentleman, I’ve been taking improv classes for 6 weeks (it’s only an 8 week class) and while I think I’ve learned some cool skills, I’m sad to report, I’m still not funny. But I’m starting to think the deck was stacked against me from the beginning. Take Chris for instance – a pro who waltzed into a class that had amateurs like me.
Then there are folks like Becca who are naturally hilarious. Seriously, you should hear some of the things that she says without hesitation! Including this deadpan answer she gave when I asked for a review of my performance thus far.
The thing is the entire class is filled with funny people with personality, wit, and phenomenal timing. I spend more time laughing then being the jester. There are folks like Alfred who are working towards being a comic and Tim who performs 4 nights a week at Howl at the Moon. They have uproarious – down!
For me, I think I’m chalking up improv class as 8 fun Tuesday nights. Next stop: stand-up class. People, I’m serious about this funny bit!
