Yes! I've tried to be like other people and I got busted. Seriously, we are all unique and celebrating yourself in a good thing.
Yes! Have you heard of Theatre Sports? Well, when I was living in So. Cal. I was in Venture Area Theatre Sports (VATS) for a decade, maybe longer. We performed on weekends, like actual shows for paying audiences. The actors didn't get paid, we did it for the love of improv! I am rusty, it's been awhile since I played "Big Boodie" or Zip, Zap, Zop, or a scene where you can only speak 4 word sentences, or questions only...etc. BUT, I am not full of myself, I need and love working the skills. I mean you have to give good offers to your scene partner/other improvisors and shine the light on them. (once in a while...just kidding)
I was born before color TV, CD's, or microwaves. We did have indoor plumbing! I grew up in New Jersey so you don't care what high school I went to. I like living in St. Louis, going to Card's games, and learning how to pronounce street signs.
