Favorite ideal show?  
  Started at Tue Nov 27 10:37:31 2007
We all love improv and comedy, at least hope so if your investing time into reading this, but what is your favorite or most ideal show? Like type of crowd or type of cast playing with? Or location or crowd size? Charity or pay crowd? High pay show more satisfying than non paying or gas money pay?

My first reaction to being asked to come play is always "Heck yeah freakin awesome!", but after the call I start to wonder questions now and will now ask these questions to the inviter if its not a home show. But even home shows I'll catch myself askin questions like "Awesome yeah I'll play, who else is playing this week?" or find myself excited to play for specialized home shows like "Quick wits vs Off the wall" show.
And generally am skeptical to play for most away shows. Like I'm invited to play for a charity show this saturday at Salt Rock Cafe one of our new regular saturday shows and my initial reaction is how show is great show, then I ponder how many free shows I've done and it got me thinking those shows were kinda downers compared to a home base crowds. And wondered whether or not paying crowds are much better for the overall energy of a show than non-paying crowds who may not want to really see a show or appreciate it as or much or generally be as invested as a paying customer to see a good show? But its at a home base location so I'll give it benefit of the doubt.

Just some preferences I've been thinking about, wanted to get some other peoples thoughts on the subject.

There are very few shows I've ever not been excited to play in, but I will admit that there are some that are more exciting before hand.

I think right now I'm more excited about trying new things. Anytime there is something that's different I get some of those "butterflys" again (something I haven't really had in a very long time).

Right now I can't wait to play with the Thrillionaires. Those guys are doing amazing shows and I like the idea that there is a slight fear in me about doing their shows.

And, I love all of the "vs. shows" -- and every other show I do. Any chance to do improv in front of a crowd or not is a great thing...

I love doing shows where people have come to see an improv show.

Now, doing banquets and parties and whatnot is fun, but the energy of doing a show in teh theatre or even at an auditorium (like a college or high school) where people know what they have come to see is just awesome.

I do agree with Jesse that it's fun (and a bit easier) to do a show where someone is expecting an improv show, but I have to say that there is a much bigger reward for turning a crowd on to improv.

Over the years I've seen this happen many times where a crowd didn't know what to expect and was blown away. They looked at what the actors did as pure magic instead of coming with a "make me laugh" type attitude.

You can see something very different in their eyes after a show and that means a lot to me...

I dig it, I see the points and good ones.

I think it has to do with who is going to the away show to play with you, and I think it takes a high energy confident cast to bust out the magic for away shows. There definetly much more of a challenging show. Aways, charities ect.

I love home shows, cause everyone feels much more relaxed the audience "gets" whats going on so you can start expanding. Away shows, and newer audiences you kinda have to get back to the "Safe" games. Which are always a crowd pleaser and always fun.

Enterprise web design is an strategy of web design that is targeted at site crafting to provide an optimum viewing encounter. This involves easy navigation and reading with minimum planning Gary Barnidge Browns Jersey , resizing and scrolling throughout a wide devices range. This is applies from desk top computers to mobile phones. An enterprise web design site adjusts the layout of the viewing atmosphere through the make use of of proportion based grids, fluid, CSS3 media queries Ozzie Newsome Womens Jersey , versatile images and also the extension of the actual media rule.

The idea of fluid power grid calls for the actual sizing of the actual page element, so that it might be on relative units like a percentage rather than being in complete units such as points or even pixels. Versatile images are sized in considerable units, to prevent them exhibiting outside their own respective that contains elements. Media queries allow the use of Cascading stylesheet style around the page in line with the device's characteristics according to the site it's displayed on. Exactly what matters generally is the width of an internet browser. Client side components like media queries in addition to server side components can provide out faster loading websites access through cellular systems and also provide richer functionality and avoid pitfalls of solutions according to only device-side.

Enterprise web design services are actually and genuinely plain magic to say a little Jim Brown Womens Jersey , that is how it seems to different designers in the planet of coding. However to us the ordinary people it is a wonderful gift that was provided to us through Ethan Marcotte; who came up with that idea. It is the latest way in which enables one to view hisher site just upon any screen at any tool and size. How this is possible, is the magic I was talking about earlier. In short, enterprise web design services are crucial modifications which are made to your website that allows it to resize by itself in order to support the browser's altering landscape through proper coding. This is possible through designing the site to shrink not by scale that's not ruled but only for the needs of which apparatus or even device that the site is heading to be viewed on. This will enable you view a website in a 21" screen and view this in an iPhone in equal clarity.

Enterprise web design services perform not only deal with mobile devices and small screens. The technology keeps growing as screens are getting smaller and bigger each day. By creating a site that's adjacent to screen size Bernie Kosar Womens Jersey , it allows 1 to utilize the screen space for better design attractiveness, more content and even reduce long mile scrolling. To see how important this technology is just imagine of all your home page content fitting positioned on a 27" keep track of. That is great according to me.
