Dream home for improv

Lets say someone with the inclination to fund an awesome place for your improv show was reading this, what would be your dream improv place? What would this place have and what kinda of shows would you do how often? Would you have food?

Wow... you've got a lot in that little question...

I think the coolest thing would be to have a basic playground for shows. You'd have different stages of all sizes for the types of shows you'd like to do.

One of my favorite stages was in that competitive improv show (World Cup Comedy something or the other). It had a rotating stage that could be set for all sorts of things. It would be really great to be able to have that type of thing.

I've always wanted a stage with a lot of ways to make entrances and have places for costumes and props.

In reality there are too many things I'd love to have and all you've made me do is think about how we'll probably never have them. Now I'm all sad...

Thanks!

I heard someone say that the biggest step to accomplishing your goals is writing it down. I love the stage playground idea. The more there is to work with I think the more the ideas flow on the stage. I was thinking if I could get the goals of the dream place to have improv would get some ideas going and someone eventually might do it, remember where the ideas came from and invite those that helped create it to run it or play there or something.

What other ideas we got?

I'd love to have it connected with another business or own the whole business. example restaurant, funny shop, costume shop, games store or something to keep the place running and be able to use the space anytime for any kind of show you want to run. Have shows every night same times but with different shows, casts, troupes ect. Then have competitive shows between the best casts or whatever for the weekend slots.

A place open to improv all the time to just hang out ect. if they want after hours too.

Adam Vinatieri says he wasn’t into Amsterdam’s  
  Reply #4 Posted at Wed Jul 5 02:55:51 2017
Apparently the transition from Brookings, South Dakota to Amsterdam is a bit of a culture shock. At least it was for Adam Vinatieri.
In an ESPN oral history commemorating the 10th anniversary of the end of NFL Europe, the former Patriots kicker recalled <a href="http://www.ochomesnloans.com/brenton-bersin-jersey-c-1_45.html">http://www.ochomesnloans.com/brenton-bersin-jersey-c-1_45.html</a> his time in the now-defunct overseas league. After finishing his college career at South Dakota State, the Coyote State native began his remarkable football career with the Amsterdam Admirals for a single season.
(According to a 2016 ESPN article, it was during his time with the Admirals that Vinatieri impressed an former staffmate of Bill Parcells, who convinced the then-Patriots head coach to give the kicker a tryout. The rest, of course, is history.)
Overall, the 44-year-old — who now (still) plays for the Indianapolis Colts — said his time playing in the overseas expansion league a “great experience” that helped him adjust to playing in front of bigger crowds.
“For me, it helped because it gave me the confidence going to the NFL,” he said. “It was almost like having a fifth year [of college].”
However, when Vinatieri refers to the European league as his “fifth year [of college],” he means it strictly in a professional development sense. Despite Amsterdam’s reputation, Vinatieri said his most memorable experiences were <a href="http://www.yadeos.com/ed-dickson-jersey-c-1_17.html">http://www.yadeos.com/ed-dickson-jersey-c-1_17.html</a> experiencing the Netherlands’ history, visiting the Anne Frank House and tulip fields, and, yes, even “putting on the wooden clogs.”
The Dutch capitol’s (in)famous red-light district? Not so much.
“I didn’t do a lot of the nightlife because it wasn’t my style,” he said. “Guys have stories of things I didn’t partake in. There’s so much more to Holland than the red-light district.”
John Fassel — an assistant for the Los Angeles Rams who played and coached for the Admirals in 2000 — described Amsterdam’s culture as surprisingly clean and easy-going.
“I was shocked how clean the city was, how many bikes there were, and how free-spirited everyone was about trying to sell you marijuana,” Fassel told ESPN. “Walked through the red-light district, see young kids walking around. I was like, ‘This isn’t what I thought it would be.'”
Still, for Vinatieri, the open European culture was at times striking.
“We went to the beach, everyone’s half-naked, and it’s like, ‘Holy crap, I’m not in South Dakota anymore,'” he said.
Read the full oral history of the fondly <a href="http://www.authentic49ersshop.com/shop-by-players-garrett-celek-jersey-c-1_21.html">Garrett Celek Kids Jersey</a> remembered European football league over on ESPN.com.
