Having Fun on stage...

One of my big things is having fun.
If you are on stage having fun, the the audience is more likely to have fun as well.
And going along with that paying attention and laughing at the other team when they do something that warrents it. This is sort of like "chumming" the fish. Teach the audience that it is ok to laugh out loud.

i completely agree with seth, but how can someone "plan" on having fun? you know what i mean?

in chicago, there are a lot of auditions for improv teams and theaters. and all the advice on message boards tell these auditioners to "just have fun at the audition." and then all the auditioners freak out and say, afterwards: "yeah, it's easy to say that if you're in a troupe or on a team."

as experienced players, it's easy to say "just have fun." but what about advice to new players... i think it's been proven that they have a lot on their mind to "just have fun."

what steps can they take to make their early shows fun?

or even auditions?
(i know clearfield has one coming up)

An important thing to keep in mind when auditioning is that the people who are reviewing you really, really, really want you to do well. they are routing for you. If you do well, they improve by having you join them. In my experience of holding auditons, I am less critical of performers than they are of themselves. Remember that and you will probably be more relaxed. More relaxed probably means more fun.

i think audiences are as well, typically. i remember getting compliments on bad shows, and thinking "wow, i wish they saw a GOOD show."

I have auditioned a ton, just remember, if for any reason you do not get into what you are auditioning for, there are SO many more things that you can audition for and probably make. If it is for a troupe, just remember that these people know what they are talking about and if you do not make it, then they have seen enough to help you work on what they see you need improvement on. For me, if I audition like I am already in the troupe, then there is less stress and worry that you are not going to do your best. Also, have HIGH energy.

Let me just sum up my opinion in a couple sentences. If you are doing a show of improv and you are having fun, everyone will have fun. If you aren't having fun, well...you shouldn't be up there.

Life is one big Merry-Go-Round, when your young it's great, when your middle-aged, it's boring, when your old, you get sick...

I made the huge mistake when I first started improv of over thinking everything drastically! I was worried about impressing everyone and not saying or doing things the "wrong" way. Then I learned that there is no wrong way, there are only ways that work better and are funner and easier. New comers need to be welcomed and made to feel at home or a part of the group right away. Then they will be more comfortable playing. If they feel accepted they won't worry as much about getting accepted and being liked.


Always do what you want, and say what you feel, those who mind don't matter and those matter don't mind!

In response to the first part of your question I shall quote Billy Merritt.

10-13-2003, 06:58 PM
Every now and then you need to check yourself.
Ask yourself if you are doing what you want to be doing.
Are you having fun?
Are the sacrifices that you have made worth what you are doing now?
Is there somthing else you would rather be doing?

I have sacrificed more than I should of to be here, marriage, finances, my dogs.[she took the dogs]
But I am happy.
I feel truthful.
I can't wait to get onstage every week.
The only time I am sad is when I know the show is over.
I try to imagine what my life would be like without improv and New York.
I can't.
There was a time when I could, but not now, I'm in to deep.
And that is good.

So ask yourself every now and then, is this right for me.
If you answer yourself truthfully,
you will be able to commit harder,
Jump farther,
Run faster than a horse,
And find the game.

End quote

If you're not having fun. Ask yourself why. It can be okay to decide to change what you're doing. There's no honor in staying to a course that doesn't benefit you.
-Jake
