Why do you prov??

I dunno if this has been brought up before, but I was sitting back the other day, thinking of why I do improv.
It made me wonder why Jesse, Andrew, Joe, everybody does improv.

I do it cause I like to hang out with my friends, and I like to pretend I am other people.....that is the short version. Feel free to go into more detail.

I like to play. With different people in different places and in different ways. It's just fun to me. The discovery and realizing you could never do this alone. The creative process is truly a wonderful thing and when you get successful at it, it becomes even better.

It's so odd to have this cultish feel to improv, but it also makes sense. It crosses a lot of lines: political, religious, economic, etc. And so it becomes a great place to meet and interact with people you might not normally interact with.

I like improv for the same reason I like victorian literature, natural selection, and riding the Chicago L.

1) the people who do it with me are really interesting
2) it makes me think on different level
3) the processes involved are complicated and intriguing
4) it's fairly cheap to do

I love a challenge. It's also freeing and it's a kind of therapy. I can't even begin to tell you the issues I've worked out through improv and acting. And I love my OTC peeps. Oh yeah, and it's goodtimes.

I 'prov because I absolutely love comedy, and because it can get difficult, which quite frequently makes it even funnier.

I improvise because I love exploring different situations and emotions. Also, because its fun to see what myself and a few other dorks can pull off. The best feeling is when you end a scene knowing that you just did somthing special and original.

As much as I hate the guy, I'm gonna have to go with what Greg says, (Citezen Probst).

When you come away from a scene and you know you've just done something really special. Something that's never happened before and will never happen again. It's just amazing to me, the things I can feel and say. I like it when it's not just funny too, I like it when I can have a touching moment, or a little bit of anger about something that's going on in this story I'm a part of.

It's not even like I'm writing the story, it's like improv is LSD and I'm just riding the story like a drug trip.

Also, I learn alot about myself when I do it, I don't care if that sounds cheesy it's true.

I love to do improv because:
I love the stage and I love to preform. and improv gives me a weekly dose of the stage.

I also love the people I play with

And lets face it what else im I going to do on a friday night.


Dont look at me in that tone of voice

I improv as a personal therapy. I figure everyone needs some sort of personal release, and mine is improv. It provides me with so much more than I can provide anyone or anything else.

I love to make people laugh and to laugh myself. I also use it as a way to break free from everything. For that hour and a half each week or any other time I am doing a show I forget everything else and am able to have fun.

The first time I saw an improv show I thought "Kyle and I could do this. Hell, we DO do this when we are together". So maybe I do it because I can. I mean WE can, we are talented enough to be allowed on a stage.

There are thoreau reasons why I "prov". almost every friend I have in Utah comes from the stage, and they are a treasure.

Getting onstasge gives me confidence.
