The Desire to Be Profound

It has been a long time sine my last post. To be honest, after my first few posts I put a little pressure on myself to be really profound about improv and kind of pysched mysef out of writing new posts. Which is ridiculous. Improv is many things. It is fast, silly and at it's best rife with beautiful failure. It is not precious and should not take itself seriously. At best it is accidentally profound. The intention to be so almost always ruins art in general and certainly doesn't help when a group of actors get onstage and make up stories on the fly.

So, here is something profoundly silly to shake it up a bit.

Colin Mochrie and Brad Sherwood have been touring improv for many years and they have a hilarious game I want to share with everybody. I first came across it on youtube a few months ago and I still can't get enough. It's even been picked up be the Whose Line is It Anway reboot, but this older clip is still my favourite. Enjoy "Sideways Scene."

More thoughts to come soon. And no more profoundness. At least not intentioanlly.
