Too much pausing

I sometimes struggle with thinking of something to say or do, which results with brief but annoying pauses. Here's the question: How do you train yourselves to think at faster speeds?

responding at a better pace will come with experience, but one thing you can do that's actually very effective is to do object work or have some facial reactions while you're thinking.

does that make sense?

oh and the perfect thing to say is what comes out of your mouth, so you might as well just say that. your parter will accept it.

Not ever reaction needs to be verbal. I think that it's an essential part to improv, but an emotional reaction is what matters. It can come in the form of physicality, a change in the activity you're doing, or like Ryan said one of the best ways to react is in your face.

My advice, don't think of the "wittest" thing to say, just move on. Too many good scenes have turned sour because the people are thinking instead of reacting.


Sooner or later, we all got back to zero.

Remember silence can be golden. Don't rush anything just like Jarky and Ryan said an honest reaction will be the best possible thing you can do.

When I first started doing improv I talked a lot. I usually always initiated the scene.

Then one day I was doing a scene with my good friend Emily. I decided that I wasn't going to talk. I was only going to say one word at a time. Just to feel what it felt like. I was afraid of the silence at first, but then I got into it. The scene went so well. People could tell so much about our relationship and who I was by what I didn't say. My body language. Wicked fun.

My quick take on this...

Joe Rogan always teaches not to think. I agree with this to a point. You need to be in the scene and not in your head. If you're thinking aobut what to say, you're in your head and not in the scene.

I think this is a big part of what Joe is teaching, but I don't want to put words in his mouth.

I try to make one big decision before the scene starts... What drives my character. I don't need to have a fully fleshed out character, all I need to do is make that one choice. Once I have that I have all I need.

For instance, if you character is driven by money, all responses will follow the money. If they are afraid of heights they will always answer things in that way.

This way you don't have to spend time thinking about it. You just do what would be the response.

You're a bank teller who is just getting robbed. Do you like your job or not? That will lead you to what will happen in the scene. If you love your job you might fight the robber. If you hate the job you might try to join up withe robber.

Think in terms of what drives your character and you'll find the answers come a lot quicker. And then just respond. Don't think about what you're saying... just say it.

I can always tell when an actor is in their head instead of the scene and it's one of the things that really bugs me.

If you're trying to think up jokes then be a stand up comedian. That way you'll have lots of time to think up funny things to say and you'll be able to tell them without someone else messing it up.

And we don't have to try and guess what set up you need for your joke.

It's a win/win

Bob

I think basically all of what you guys said, just go with the flow.
